Ah, I see what you mean. I've seen those giant sphere type sky lanterns on YouTube, but those aren't the ones sold on eBay of course. I thought your
post concerned your contruction of a small spherical lantern to test. I've no thoughts about alternative phenomena like plasma balls, though I have
read a bit about them. My comments concerned only the sourcing and use of standard sky lanterns. These can move in unusual pathways if the air
currents are in different directions at different heights. However, I don't imply that all spherical lights are sky lanterns. I just reported my own
experience with them.
