|shiny spherical object accompanies jet leaving McCarran airport.
I have been reluctant to report this, because my wife and I recently reported a sighting at our home in Arizona. (previous report, 12/04/06, apache junction, az).
I am 61, never saw anything like this before, now 2 in 3 weeks.
Anyway, my wife and I were at our son's house in Henderson with some other family members for Christmas, and about 8 am I stepped out in the back yard to smoke. I was watching the planes going in and out of McCarran.
The east bound jets mostly went directly overhead. I saw one of these jets, headed east, that was accompanied by another object, which was directly under the jet, travelling at exactly the same speed and direction.
It might have been about 100 feet under the jet. It was very shiny, and did not have any wings. It was simply a sphere. It looked like it kept a constant distance from the jet.
I had a very clear view of the object and the plane, and comparing its size to that of the jet, I would guess it was maybe 20 ft in diameter.
My wife and 2 other people came outside, and they all 3 saw the same thing.
