Flaming object attached to balloon

My roommate came and pounded on my door exclaiming that there was a UFO outside. I was a bit skeptical, but willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

When we got out to the balcony, he pointed it out in the sky. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a flaming bag of some sort attatched to a large balloon, probably released by someone in this neighborhood. I had seen a similar one a few weeks ago. I felt bad about bursting his balloon (of excitement), pardon the pun, but I recognized it right away.

We're still, however, on the lookout to see a real one.
