A shimmering dot like object seen thru binoculars at approx 45 degrees moving right-left eradically in field.Unidentified Object Sighting: Saturday, May 9, 2009, WST: 10:44:50 Reno, NV On Saturday, the above date and time), a neighbor living at ((deleted)) Court, Reno, NV, alerted me of this unusual sighting in Reno, NV. He was sitting on this front porch stoop (facing West) and noticed a silver sparkling object appearing to travel up the side of Peavine mountain. At first he thought it was a helicopter but ruled this out due to the rapid ascent and abrupt changes in directions without regard to being on a road or paths that were visible on the side of the mountain. He indicated he observed this object for about 30 seconds then decided to get his binoculars and camera.He then observed this object going above the top of Peavine in a westerly or north-westerly direction. He used is Canon digital camera with the 40 power lens and took three pictures, only two frames captured the object which was just a small dot in the totally blue sky background. He was so excited that he yelled at me to come and see the object which was shimmering in the sky at some distance, I used his binoculars then got my binoculars to observe the shinny and our US Postman also observed the object.While using my binoculars and observing the object, it sped different directions and reversed course very rapidly, unlike any normal flying craft. Finally it was no longer visible to me and the other observers.After the sighting, the neighbor downloaded the captured images approximately 400X and it was a very distinct object with the magnification used by the computer. He will forward the original digital image without magnification and other photos indication the approximate angle of sighted object in the sky from out vantage point on San Simeon Ct.To contact me: ((e-address deleted)), 775-((telephone number deleted)) ((address deleted)), Reno, NV 89509 Sincerely ((name deleted))
