UFO over Burbank is just a clear bag with 4 burners

I have some bad news, the orange ball that we have been seeing over Burbank is what looks like a plastic bag with 4 burners on the bottom. It just flew right past my apartment. I had seen it in the past along with everyone else and didn't know what it is until tonight. I got a really good look at it. It was about 40 feet from my balcony. I'm sorry guys.

((NUFORC Note: NUFORC has received several reports about the objects in the vicinity of Burbank, and many claims as to what they are. However, if they are, indeed, pyrotechnic devices, then the officials in the area should make an effort, we believe, to apprehend whoever it is who is launching the alleged "hot air balloons." There may have been many of them that have been launched since December 2002, and they pose a significant fire risk, we believe. It is unclear to us that they are, in fact, pyrotechnic devices, and we note that no one has taken the time to photograph the objects. PD))
