after a few second, I was dreadfully surprised. That big figure moved little bit, then suddenly disappeared!!

Å@I'm a Japanese man. On this January 5th,I was in my room of Hotel San Remo(in Las Vegas) and brushing teeth seeing out side of window. Time was about 5:00pm. I suddenly noticed a big ball figured object flying above the airport. At first, I thought it was a big airship, staying at the same position for some reason, and that circle(ball) figure should be the top of the airship. And at first, I thought that it seemed as a big ball because the airship was pointing it's top to my hotel's direction by some reason. But,,,, after a few second, I was dreadfully surprised. That big figure moved little bit, then suddenly disappeared!! It happend while I was brushing my teeth. I couldn't believe the scene happening in front of me!! I can't believe even now that such a big object would disappear suddenly!! After that , I told what I watched but nobody believe me. I understand them, because I myself can't believe eather. Now, I came back to Japan. I write this letter from Japan. Most of friend said that I'd better not to say about it anymore. See you,

((NUFORC Note: We know that one, or more, blimps are hangared at the Las Vegas airport. However, we have no explanation for why, or how, a blimp could disappear as quickly as the witness suggests. PD))
