If you've ever flown to Las Vegas from the east, you may not have realized that you were briefly above Hildale, Utah.

The town is best known as the home of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Canadian airline WestJet, which has a lot of flights to Las Vegas, picked Hildale to film a commercial.

Hildale is not mentioned by name. Instead, text reads "Mojave Desert, Utah." But Hildale residents watched crews erect lights on the desert floor just north of town.

The video on Youtube shows the light show passengers on a WestJet flight got to watch.

A second video shows how the lights were erected and the video was made.
