large glowing object over mnts west of vegas. seen by many people located in different areas of the valley. object has been there alot in last few weeks. It is not in the same spot every night but in the same area. Reported the same by many witnesses. Witnesses were not together at time of sighting, 4 different pairs and two individuals had same type of experiance on different nights. Appears to be huge and rather in high orbit as you can see the commercial air traffic flying substantially lower than it over the mountains. Object does not move, it appears stationary. Object is not seen flying away, it simply vanishes after 1 hour or more. No reporting on local news, however many people are actively watching this, nightly. One night I was observing it there was a plane out of Nellis AFB that headed straight for the object in an unusual flight path for them. As it approached the object it vanished.
