National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 7/4/2015 23:20 (Entered as : 07/04/15 23:20)
Reported: 7/5/2015 12:58:24 PM 12:58
Posted: 7/6/2015
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Shape: Circle
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Silent orange-red light moving SW across the night sky. After two minutes the object vanished from sight.

We witnessed an orange/red light moving silently across the sky in a deliberate direction. The size of the light source was far too large to be a regular/commercial aircraft and it was moving south-southwest across the sky. The distance of the object from us was great, several miles at least.

After a minute or two, the light vanished as if the craft turned off the light source. I continued observation; showed no trace of the object afterwards for several minutes.

It did not return.
