Amber/orange light sighting

Reference similar sighting same time/day:

Looking south, I sighted orange/amber light moving west to east approximately 30 degrees up from the horizon.

I believe these are hoaxed. They move at about the same speed as the wind, I believe they are plastic bags with candles illuminating and providing the hot air for lift.

The redish/amber particles often seen falling (and leaving a slight trail) near the end of the sighting are the burning remains of the candles.

They seem to eminate from East Redlands or West Yucaipa (west of 15th street in Yucaipa).

They are usually seen about 19:30-20:00 hrs.
