Hi Peter, This happened in the late Winter or early Spring of 2009. I've texted this twice to George Noorey but have never received a reply.
I worked for a year in Bunkerville, NV, on a large home remodeling project on a 10,000 sq. ft. ranch home from July of 2008 to July of 2009. I stayed on the ranch which was just off of Gold Butte Rd. along the Virgin River about 90 min N of Las Vegas, 15 min S of Mesquite and 7 or so minutes S of the town center of Bunkerville. Years later, after the skirmish at the Cliven Bundy ranch, I realized that where we had worked was right next to the Bundy ranch.
The little guest house I stayed in while there was up on plateau accross the driveway from the main estate house and about 40 yards from the edge of a little cliff that went down to a dirt road. The Virgin River was across a pasture on the other side of the road.
The sound of heavy helicopters flying low and dark along the river in the wee hours was a regular occurance.
One morning maybe sometime between 3 and 4 am, awakened by that sound, I went out, looked up and saw a meteor shower, so I lay down in the driveway and started watching. There were so many visible stars it was crazy.
Here's shay happened next. As I was looking up, the stars started disappearing in a straight line on the south horizon. ALL the stars! The dark line moved north and eventually, the entire sky was dark. Not a star to be seen. Then after a few minutes, the sky started to show again in a strait line moving north.
I believe that a silent object as large as the east is from the west, passed overhead blocking my view of the stars as it moved across the sky from horizon to horizon in all 4 directions.
I didn't tell anyone except my wife for several years, but I've heard you on Coast to Coast several times and wondered what you might think of this?
