My sister and I lived about half a mile east of the Vegas strip. We were walking west to the strip with her boyfriend early one morning. It looked like a plane traveling in a straight line about 20 degrees over the horizon above the strip just below the mountain tops. It looked to be maybe another half mile behind the strip. Then it started shooting what looked like red flares straight to the ground. It shot three flares about five minutes apart. Then it shot off into space at about 45 degrees above the horizon over the mountain tops like a meteor in the opposite direction, away from the planet. It was then out of sight.
