While on a mobile security patrol in Henderson, Nevada, on January 1st at midnight, I observed these strange lights over the southeast area of the city. Henderson is just to the southeast of Las Vegas. I was conducting a patrol at the Paseo Verde Shopping Plaza located on the corner of Valley Verde and Paseo Verde. The final part of my patrol was to inspect the rear of the plaza for vagrants. While en-route to the rear of the plaza, I had noticed a red star which at first I thought was Mars. After quickly realizing that the celestial location was completely wrong, I did a double take when I realized that there was not one but five very prominent solid red lights in the sky above me.
I work the graveyard shift every night. I am well aware of what commercial aircraft looks like at night. These were not standard aircraft. I also run an extremely time intensive security route and have no time to stop and mess around with nonsense. These lights stopped me in my tracks. I could hear the fireworks display emanating from The Strip and a nearby casino to the west. These were not fireworks. After capturing a series of photos with my cell phone (a Samsung Galaxy s4), I quickly switched to video. I caught roughly 1:12 worth of video as well. As I began filming, lights started to disappear and others joined with the main formation. I submit this hoping that others in the Las Vegas/Henderson area may have observed the same event and have additional footage/photos from another area of town that could possibly offer a different perspective as to what I witnessed.
I have also uploaded the video on YouTube for public review.
