The Killers star Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. was left shaken after spotting a UFO on a road trip through Nevada. The drummer worked as a luggage courier for an airline before shooting to fame, and he was heading across the U.S. desert on a job when he spotted a strange light in the sky. The rocker was dumbstruck as he watched the mysterious laser-like object dip behind a mountain range before zipping up into the sky in a blinding flash of light. Vannucci, Jr. tells Q magazine, "I was driving to the middle of Nevada on (Route) 95 North and I saw this red dot in the sky, almost like a laser pointer kind of red but it was bigger and it was doing all these motions like normal flight patterns and then it would zip down and go really quick. "I pulled over. I didn't have a phone at the time and I tried to radio people and no one heard me. Then it went behind this mountain range and it was six at night so the sun was going down and there was this giant flash of light afterwards, like a strobe, and it was gone. It was crazy. I'm not making any of that up."
