MYSTERY WIRE — A truly mysterious series of lights were seen by people in the Las Vegas valley earlier this week.
The lights, as seen in several videos and photographs, appeared over Las Vegas around 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 1. People on different sides of the city have reported seeing them.
In the video and pictures you can clearly see four to eight lights. While hard to tell, most of the lights appear to be floating without much movement.
One witness to the spectacle was Melanie Smith. She lives on the fourth floor of a building a couple miles south of the Las Vegas Strip. She says she saw the lights appear twice between 7:30 and 8:30.
In her video she is recording looking north. You can see seven lights at first. Four grouped together to the left of her view (west), another light is seen lower than the others, and two more to the right.
In her second video she notices an eighth light that appears only for a few seconds, but as she says in the recording it looks like it was on fire.
In another video posted to Twitter, the person who recorded this video writes it looked like the lights were over Circa in downtown Las Vegas. Mystery Wire contacted Circa and were told it had nothing to do with lights in the sky.
