orange light at night

Playing cards with friends in my house. One of my friends noticed a wierd light outside. It was very windy with the wind blowing from the south. I looked out the window and stepped out on a small deck outside my house. I observed an orange object what appeared to be possibly flowing in the wind. It made no noise but my friends thought it might be a chinese lantern. I dont believe it was a lantern the winds would have blown out the candle. The trees blocked my view within a few seconds so I had a limited amount of time to study the object.
