Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
27.07.2016
Location: 
мотель Lil Ale'Inn
NV
United States

The following statement was provided by /u/Jawkurt :

So this is when I planned to stop at the entrance to Area 51, traveling from California through Nevada and eventually back to Austin. I photographed my rabbit in national parks and wanted him to be there too. That day I had problems with my car and I was running behind... I started walking down the driveway to Area 51, but got a little confused as it was already dark. I decided to go back to the motel I saw (Lil Al'Inn). 

I noticed that I could easily see the Milky Way, and stopped by the side of the road to take a picture of it. Then I saw something flying through the air and recorded it from inside my car. It seemed pretty weird, especially considering where I was. When I got to the hotel, I mentioned it, and they said that the military was conducting exercises that night. 

The next morning, leaving, the same woman said that last night her friends were at the groom's lake and sent her a video in much better quality. 

She said it was definitely not a normal military exercise and she didn't know what it was. I asked her to send it to me, but she never did.

Original news

The following submission statement was provided by /u/Jawkurt:

So this is from when I planned to stop at the entrance to Area 51 while traveling from California through Nevada and eventually back to Austin. I had been taking photos of my rabbit at national parks and wanted one of him tehre too. I had some car trouble that day and was running behind... I started to go down the entrance road to Area 51 but got kind of weirded out since it was already after dark. I decided to back track to the motel I saw (Lil Ale'Inn). I noticed I could see easily see the Milky Way and stopped on the side of the road to take a photo of it. I then saw something shooting through the air and recorded it from inside my car. It seemed pretty odd, especially given where I was. When I got to the hotel I mentioned it and they said the military was doing exercises that night. The next morning when checking out the same woman said that her friends were at groom lake the previous night and they had sent her a much better quality video. She said it was definitely not just the normal military drills and she didn't know what it was. I asked her to send it to me but she never did.

Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Space debris

By space junk refers to all manmade objects and their fragments in space, which is already faulty, not functioning, and will never be able to serve any useful purpose. Currently in low earth orbits up to altitudes of about 2000 km is, according to various estimates, about 220 thousand (300 thousand according to the UN office for outer space Affairs, October 2009) man-made objects weighing up to 5000 tons.
In the case of UFOs, it is possible to expand this list lost cosmonauts things (tools, etc.).

Pyrotechnics

This category includes not only pyrotechnic projectiles visible in the sky, but also traces of exploded projectiles, their fragments and other similar activities. 

Pyrotechnics is a branch of technology related to the technology of preparing combustible compounds and burning them to obtain a certain signal or effect.

Divided into:

Booster, the rocket and tracks

For UFOs often take stages of rockets, parts of space ships burning in the atmosphere, the launches of various missile technology for military purposes, etc., and traces from them. They attract attention mostly in the dark, but in the day time have a greater aura of mystery.

Formation of the track of the launch vehicle occurs in the tropopause (the layer between the troposphere and stratosphere), which sharply reduced the vertical temperature gradient. The emergence of the so-called "jellyfish" influenced by water vapor, which are subject to enhanced condensation.

Airplane / Helicopter

An aircraft heavier than air for flights in the atmosphere (and outer space (e.g. An orbital aircraft)), using the aerodynamic lift of a glider to keep itself in the air (when flying within the atmosphere) and the thrust of a power (propulsion) installation for maneuvering and compensating for the loss of total mechanical energy to drag. 



A rotorcraft in which the lift and thrust required for flight are created by one or more main rotors powered by an engine or several engines. They differ in maneuverability, the ability to hover and almost vertical takeoff.

Investigation

Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials
 

News: Chinese rocket stages return to Western US

A flaming fragment of space debris from China's newest launch vehicle streaked through the Earth's atmosphere over the western United States late on Wednesday.

Streaking across the skies of California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Colorado, the object broke into many pieces before disappearing. The relatively low speed of the fireball — it took almost a minute to cross the sky — ruled out a natural origin, experts say.

The video was shot by Matt Holt in Utah County, Utah.
