2 bright colored, fire like, teardrop shaped beings in the sky.

STATEMENT OF UFO SIGHTING I was driving home on August 19, 2011, and turning off of the highway at US 95 North at Fort Apache - Horse Drive at approximately 8:30 pm. This location is situated in North-West Las Vegas, Nevada.

As I was approaching Horse Drive, I noticed two very distinctive bright orange colored lights in the sky. At first I thought they may be special street lights, because they are doing construction work in the area. As I got closer, driving down Horse Drive, it suddenly became clear that they were not street lights.

I continued driving down Horse Drive, glaring at these lights and when I was sure of what I saw, I stopped to observe. There was a maroon colored van, which had apparently been observing the two lights as well.

The two lights were like fire and shaped like a tear drop or a clove. The sky was dark (just beyond dusk), stars were visible. The objects were identical. The color was pinkish-orange at the bottom, yellowish-orange in the middle, and yellow at the top. They were very bright. It was just like fire and they were hovering and behaving like the movement of fire. They appeared to be much larger than the stars, yet about 1/3 size of a regular full moon. They were a good distinctive distance between each other, but they were clearly identical in shape and size.

As I was observing these two beings, one of them shot away over and behind the western mountains. The maroon colored van made a U-turn and drove back up Horse Drive. The speed of the shooting being was a little slower than lightening speed, but very, very fast. The remaining one just hovered. As I began to move down the street a little further, the being moved parallel to me. I proceeded to turn in on my street and I could still see it. I stopped the car again just before turning into my garage and the being just sat there. I pulled into my garage and closed the door. I grabbed my digital camera and went back outside to take pictures, but it was gone.

I called the police to report it and they gave me your number.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and she sounded to us to be quite sober-minded and sincere. We suspect that she was an excellent witness. PD))
