    Chinese lanterns are a recently trendy toy for releasing at outdoor parties.
    Yup, flaming incendiary paper toys to release upon the wind.  What could
    possibly go wrong...

    Hi all:
     Well, 0120 UT a BRIGHT red object was seen overhead tonight like my last
    observation a week ago, but this time my 15x70 binoculars were at hand and I
    managed to see it -- a BALLOON with a flame in it.
    It was not manned as far as I could see but now I know what it was.
    I think someone did mention a balloon.
     But who launched it?   ahh well...
    Clear skies
