3 Orange Balls Of Light Spotted Flying Over Mount Royal Road Winnipeg Manitoba

Date:  July 19, 2012
Time:  10:30 p.m.
Hi Brian, I just read your account of seeing an orange light on July 8, 2012 while I was searching Google for a possible explanation of our experience at approximately 10:30 this evening.
Like yourself, my husband, son and I live near the airport and to the east of our house can see the planes descending along the Mount Royal Road flight path.
Tonight the three of us saw three separate balls of orange light, to the east but, because of some cloud cover it was difficult to tell if they were only a few streets away or much further.
They were of a significant size so as to be easily noticed and appeared to be somewhat burning or flaming as opposed to being solid orange coloured objects. 
Within probably 60 to 90 seconds all three appeared to either slowly extinguish or else moved behind the clouds.  They did not reappear.
My son is wondering if these could have been Chinese lanterns, which can apparently be purchased at the Dollar Store.  He thinks these are lit in some fashion and rise into the sky.
I'm not sure if anyone would chance releasing any burning object during these scorching weather conditions, let alone three, yet we feel there must be some logical explanation as to what we saw.
Just thought you might be interested especially since you described your sighting as also being orange coloured and somewhat pyrotechnic.
Additional Information:
Thank you for your reply, Brian. 
Mount Royal Road is in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and it is probably the major flight path for departures and arrivals in our city.
After watching a few lightings of Chinese lanterns on you tube, I believe this is most likely what we saw.  However, articles on these lanterns have advised against releasing them near airports or flight paths and around trees.
Also, to this point, no one else has reported seeing anything unusual last night in Winnipeg.
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.
