    This was most likely a chinese celebration balloon lit by a small candle.

      Maybe a kind of "heads up" .
    Was on my balcony waiting for Iridium 67 & 68 to fly by when , something 
    bright rose up quickly from the ground and
    appeared to come from just a couple blocks away . However , I could see soon 
    enough that although it was very well
    lit it also appeared to be turning and wavering slightly as it rose .
    I could make out a kind of shape , maybe star shaped or rectangular but 
    whatever shape it was it looked to me to
    be a balloon , transparent , perhaps filled with a lighter than air gas , 
    and maybe some kind of very white light .
    The thing is , that once it got up to a high altitude , all you could make 
    out was that it was a bright light
    that appeared to be moving slowly across the sky . I lost it in the trees 
    and couldn't hazard a guess as to how
    long it continued to ascend or how dim it finally got . Sorry for that .
    The last I did see of it however could have easily been mistaken for a UNID
