Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
White Streak over Henderson.

Object was traveling on a east to west trajectory. It seemed like a meteor in very low atmosphere entry, but object was perfectly round, with a very bright pure white streak as the orb appeared at the end of the streak on a very smooth and sharp motion. As if generated by a CGI system, although this happened in our eyesight over the southern part of Henderson near Highway 15.

Flights going into Mcarran (LAS) were seen on approach at a lower altitude, flights seemed to be headed towards Lake Mead for their final turn and approach before landing, at the vantage point, it seemed object was 5 times the size of a Boeing 737.

Object had very sharp and defined edges within the white streak of light, no debris field behind or around its side. Upon its final light emission a brilliant white orb could be seen at its end and light completely disappeared as if by a light switch, without any prior change is its coloration or brilliance.

I have seen meteors showers, meteors, comets, and an avid astronomy amateur. Most people would dismiss it as a lone meteor or space debris, this object showed no hallmarks of being either.
