Duration:15+ minutes
Red/orange lights or flames in the late evening sky--moving northwest

Honestly, they were probably just lanterns flying in the sky, but I can't find reference to them anywhere, and oddly enough they either went out or disappeared over my street.

At that time of night they would have probably been floating for a fair amount of time if they were coming from a carnival or firework display of some sort.

Just would love to confirm this since they were rather interesting and beautiful floating much lower than a plane or helicopter-they were in a crooked line, and perhaps as high as one might see a large balloon or high flying kite.

No photos; my phone was dead.
