Bright Lights/Reflections in Nevada


#1

Hello, I was on Flight AAL839 yesterday and I saw some very bright reflections and was wondering if anyone knows what they were from.
I don’t know the exact location, but it was on the starboard side about 1/2 to 3/4’s of the way through our flight.

Possibly something like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivanpah_Solar_Power_Facility although that’d be on the other side of the plane.

These aren’t solar panels that generate electricity directly but mirrors that concentrate light to heat a fluid to power a turbine.

There has been a lot of news about how thousands of birds are instantly cooked in the air around these things every year.
