Location: North Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Light
Duration:15 seconds
Looking northeast to airspace of Nellis AFB, which is about 5 and a half miles from my location. A singular white light appears heading towards to my direction, the light was bright as Jupiter, as if I was staring at a plane with headlights turned on.

Then the light dimmed and starting moving southeast, the dimmed light didn't look like any flight related lights I've seen and it didn't have a pattern in its blinking, it looked as if it was twinkling due to it being a heat source or due to the atmosphere but it was definitely not a pattern typical of airplanes. There also no sound of any kind that I would have heard in a quiet night. A heliporter sound would have been a dead giveaway and I also checked on my smartphone for nearby planes to see what it was and nothing showed up for that portion of the sky. And I have seen satellites and falling rocks. The appearance and behavior of this object tells me it is unknown.
