National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 8/12/2003 10:00 (Entered as : 08/12/2003 10:00)
Reported: 9/2/2004 4:00:09 PM 16:00
Posted: 9/9/2004
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 15 mins
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Shiny rotating cylinders flying over Vegas

A couple of co-workers and my self were having a smoke break on the fourth floor of our parking garage. The garage is open, and we were looking out into the open sky since there were no tall buildings obstructing our view. Then we noticed about 5 cylindrical objects grouped closely together, and were slowly coming our direction. The weird thing about them was that they looked metallic and shiny, occasionally sparkling. As well they were rotating quite quickly, but moving very slowly. One of the objects broke off from the group and moved slowly upwards and left this wispy white trail. It was a typical beutiful day in Vegas with no clouds, so there shouldn't have been any wispy anything.

I sort of forgot about this for a while, but then I saw this TV show which showed these same objects, and said they were UFOs - the photo shown on the show was taken by a airline passenger flying over the pacific.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. We believe this witness telephoned our Hotline, and he sounded quite sober-minded to us. PD))
