Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
Three Fireballs in the Las Vegas sky flying in formation then becoming one fireball.

Just before sunset on this particular evening I was sitting on the balcony of the Knights Inn airport hotel in Las Vegas located at 5100 Paradise Rd. (The day of the this report is approximate as it has been many years ago) As I looked into the West, I noticed at roughly 40 degrees above the horizon what appeared to be three fireballs in the sky. They appeared pretty far away. I would guess from where I was they must have been between 5 to 10 miles away.

I studied them carefully and determined that they were not any type of man made aircraft I am aware of. I work for the airlines and I am familiar with aircraft of many kinds in various types of weather and lighting conditions and have never seen anything like this before. They literally looked like balls of fire floating in the sky.

During this sighting the fireballs would fly in formation left and right at low speed, then separate and fly apart from one another then all come together and form one ball of fire. They did this many times until eventually the single fireball ascended into the sky and became invisible to the naked eye.
