Location: Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:2 minutes
Cylinder shaped object was illuminated inside, contained figures within and left at the speed of light.

My Wife and I were traveling between Las Vegas and Beatty Nevada. As we were traveling north on route 95, we were driving about 60 mph and I observed a stationary light on the west side of the highway, about the height of one of the large powerline towers. I thought to myself a powerline must cross the road there, and it was lighted for aircraft. We were talking and driving, and as I approached where the light was (I could not see it without leaning foward and looking up) I noticed there was not a electical powerline tower there. It was odd, and I leaned foward and looked up (as did my wife). We both observed a cylinder shaped object, about as long as a city bus suspended in air. There was a window across the cylinder, and the window appeared to be at a 45 degree angle downward facing towards us. There appeared to be a panel of somekind the entire length of the window. There were figures seated at the panel across the length of the object, and what app! eared to be several figures standing behind them. My wife and I both got the feeling the figures inside the objects were looking at us. The interior of the object was illumintated, and we could see clearly inside. As we passed, we were both surprised because the object appeared to be suspended in air. I asked her if she wanted to turn around and go back, and she said yes. I found a place to complete a U turn, and as we approached the object from the north a hundred yards away, it "streaked off" in a southeastern diretion towards Las Vegas, on an horizontal plane. It rose abrubtly over a mountain, and then downward over the top...and disappeared. From the time it started south, to when it disappeared was within a couple of seconds. There was no noise as we passed by it, or as it left the area.
