Traveling down the Highway towards Vegas. We noted it flying,actually staying with us for several miles,probably about 2-3000 feet-due East of us. Bright light,like a star, actually we thought it was at first. it stayed with us for about 20 minutes...just outside the passenger side window. We stopped. It stopped. Stars around us had made their rotations..it did not. We sat there for about 5 minutes watching it. It just stayed there. We continued towards Vegas. It stayed with us for about another 5-10 minutes,then started to fade. we stopped again,it started to fade- reversed field of travel-headed up,maybe at 60 degrees,and disappeared-FAST.We continued on towards Vegas. When we went past the Indian Springs Air Base,it was like the middle of the day. People,humvees,aircraft were everywhere...all in a hurry. it was like all hell had broke loose.
When we left Vegas,headed back to Oregon,we drove past the base...it was closed up tight,like no one had been there.
I told a friend of mine at ((Military organization deleted)) ((name deleted))-at Space command-he told me not to tell anyone a thing about it,and let it go.."it's nothing".
\I had to tell someone.
