Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Reno, NV
Shape: Cigar
Duration:3 to 5 min.
looking directly east, saw object slowly moving north from south, stop, drop 3 fireballs, slowly moved south and with no hesitation, took off like it was shot from a sniper's rifle east.

at exactly midnight, walking directly east to my work post, i noticed something moving slowly north from the south, above the eastern mountain's that surround the truckee meadow's. as i stopped to watch, this cigar shaped object (fat in the middle, taperd ends)at a min. distance of 20 miles, came to a complete halt. from the north end of this immense craft (covered two mountain tops) it dropped 3 sparkler like fireballs about 5 sec. apart. after about a min. or so, it slowly moved back south and from my location, as it reached rattlesnake mountain, it shot east and was gone. i do mean SHOT, literally. before this event, i witnessed, i have 5 years experience as an aircraft refueling supervisor at LAX & RNO. my employer's at both site's had the military contract's for fueling. any aircraft produced before 1985, including aeroflot & airbus, i have fueled and trained other's to fuel.
