Sam Boyd orange fiery ufo.

I was working the night crew for Sam Boyd Stadium, and earlier, I heard of a fire ball in ths sky that. came from the wetlands where all the citys water runs back into lake mead. A coworker said I missed it, but he said it hovered the exploded into a fire ball. He said he thought it was a flare but then when it cMs ovst the butler building he thought it was a missel or a millitary rocket. But when it got closer it looked like a fite ball or orb. Then exploded as it took off and left real fast. I didnt see it yet. But as we were gking on break walking to the shop.the butler building the maintenance shop. The orb was not a missel or a rocket. It got really close and I stood in amazement. And it was glowing like a fire all around. It kind of look like a jApanese lantern but nothing like those japanese kites or lanterns. It looked like it had 4 jet streams spinning in.a circle and A 5 jet stream pointing down the ground. It was really amazing.becausr the top of it! looked like an optapus head or it was oval.with a sharp point tip like a tent but what I could describe it it looked like an insect or felt like it was a living organism and I.could feel.it like.it could sence me and gave me the chills. It wasnt like the metalic space crafts you hear or see on tv lr nothing like the normal ufo sightingz. The firery orb seemed more like a living organism and glowed and fiery orange or amber type of glowing live flames or real .fire. It was real quite and made no sound. Then it flew around the stadium around the west where I stood almost as close to the light poles then flew around the south end. Then we All went on break. The sighting I.believe they live in the wetlands behind sam boyd stadium. Because it came from the mountains behind the stadium. Sam boyd elevation is one of the lowest part of the vegas valley. Plus I think.now that the wetlands preserve is undergoing construction with the hicking trail. Alot of construction and bulldozers are channeling.the water and the water detention basin to get the wetlands to flow. I.think they are messing up with the naturL process of nature of the desert of this aetland oasis. . Maybe this ufo lives in the waters or lake mead.
