Interesting find! But can we rule out Chinese Lanterns as many claim these are?

Those are lanterns, it's obvious. the video displays none of the spirals or aerobatics that are claimed to have happend.
They look and act like lanterns, they glow an orange/yellow colour and move slowly as if carried by the wind, you can even see them flickering!
I have used these myself countless times, I have absoloute first hand experience and have even managed to trigger false sightings unintentionally.
Unless someone can show me an undedited video of those lights actually lingering for 3 hours like claimed then I personally dismiss it out of hand and encourage other to do likewise.
I'd be amazed if there is a video of them that lasts more than 15 minutes!
