Shape: Oval
Duration:2 – 3 minutes
Yellow Orange oval ring seen over the Northwest Las Vegas valley.

At around seven twenty PM, I was taking out the trash and happened to look to the east sky. Above the houses I noticed what appeared to be an oval shaped ring in the sky. All I could see is the outline, which was bright, and nothing inside of the oval. After a while (45 secs maybe?), the object begin to travel south (to my left) staying at roughly the same altitude. As it moved forward and to my left, it would advance and then double back slightly. It did this 4 or 5 times, and then stopped in midair. It began to grow in size, and I realized that the object was getting closer. Not willing to put myself in danger, as I was the only one around that I could see, I went inside. I came back out a few minuets later, and it was gone. I live in the flight path of both an air force base and an airport, and I see helicopters and military planes all the time. This object did not have any running lights like you would see on a helicopter or low flying plane, and it was all one color, a yellow orange glow. The object did not change its orientation to me much. The ring was thickest at the bottom left corner (to the north), and was thinnest at the top right corner (south) the object had two clearly distinct circles or spheres on the bottom left hand corner of the ring. These looked like beads on a necklace, and I could tell the object was facing me the same way because the circles stayed in nearly same position on the ring. I tried to see how big it was, and the ring would fit inside of my little finger. There were other aircraft, in the vicinity, but they did not seem to be chasing the object. If anything they were flying the flight path to the airport. I was the only one that I know that saw the object, and I have never seen anything like it before. I did not hear any sound nor were there any weird effects.
