Location: Area 51, NV
Shape: Circle
Duration:app 1 hour
My brother and I witnessed a bright pulsating light in the air. We were very close to Area 51 at the time of the sighting. I was able to capture approximately 10 minutes of what I believe is very striking video.

Early November 3, 1999 my brother and I were searching for Area 51. After a long tiring drive down the roughest dirt road I've ever seen we tired and gave up. Then as we drove down Extraterrestrial Hwy. I noticed a light in the sky. It appeared to be below the moon, but was brighter and larger than any star in the sky. I video taped the object for several minutes we then stopped the car to get a better video. I was able to capture about 10 minutes of video before my battery died. We thought the object was amazing, but figured once we were able to view the video we would realize it was just a star. However, I don't believe what we saw was a star. We did witness an airplane fly through the general area (I'm not sure if that is on the tape, however), but it was hard to tell where the plane was in relation to the light. To the naked eye it appeared to be a bright light, but when I was able to zoom in on the light it appeared to pulsate. At one point I was completely zoomed in at holding completely still and the object moved about. Recently I watched a show about sightings over Phoenix in 1997. One man's video taken a few days before all of the other sightings was an exact match to the sighting my brother and I had. The light was still in the sky an hour later when we reached our hotel. I have made a copy of my tape and would very much like to have someone with some expertise in the field view it.
