Orange orbs drift over Centerville.

My dad spends most of his time in the garage and stays in there as late as 4 am. He opened the door and yelled for me to come outside. He was standing in the driveway and just above the tree line you could see a small, silent, orange orb slowly drifting to the west.

It stopped abruptly and began to fade and then become bright again as if it were pulsating. Every few seconds it would drop what appeared to be an ember. Eventually it did not brighten again.

The reason this was so strange was that in March we saw the exact same thing. There were two of them drifting directly over our street and larger as they couldn’t have been more than 500 feet up.

I saw a video of the exact same thing in Ireland only during the day.

Were they Chinese lanterns or something more?
