Shape: Light
Duration:7 minutes
Four red lights floated up over Mission Viejo, CA

4 red lights were observed rising from behind the rooftop of my neighbors home. They floated up one by one to a certain height, where all four of them appeared to fade out into darkness. They looked like they were approximately one to two miles away. I have never seen Chinese lanterns but these things definitely behaved like I would imagine a Chinese lantern to behave. They disappeared at a height that was partially obscured by my neighbor's palm tree approximately 80-100 feet away from where I was standing in my backyard. The palm tree is approximately 25 feet tall.
