Glad to know there was a bunch of us who saw it.

It is still evading all of my possible explanations...

so I posted it on MUFON

You can too if you have more information.



Loving you.

several of us saw, while working on the Trojan Horse pyrotechnics, what appeared to be a large radio controlled helicopter. Multiple (4?) rotors. Huge shrouded camera lens. overall maybe 6 or 8 feet square. It hovered for a long time during the pull probably taking pictures and video. This looked like big $ porfessional gear, not hobby.

Anybody else see this / what / who??
links?

found what I think I saw:

Draganflyer X8 camera helicopter - has standard aircraft lights (LED red green white) could appear to be a red light floating in the sky.

overall size about 3.5 ft square

http://www.draganfly.com/uav-helicopter/draganflyer-x8/

base price without camera is about $32000.00

I saw the red light as well, VERY strange. I wasn't quite sober but still within my wits. I've spent a lot of time in the backwoods of nevada and at the burn and have NEVER seen anything like that. It wasn't your average craft, balloon or lantern that's for sure.

I saw this too, but I was there with you. I did later see the pilot following it with a buddy. I would LOVE to see the video.
