Why is everyone always saying "Chinese Lantern"? Are there really that many Chinese Lanterns in the sky floating around with lights in them? Or is "Chinese Lantern" just a convenient excuse to shoo away an unknown sighting, like saying it was "swamp gas"?

Just a bit of maybe-not-so useless information:
In Australia in September 2009 the ACCC (Australian Competition and Consumer Commission) banned the supply and exportation of sky lanterns (I think pending a review in 2011.) Private fireworks have been banned since the late '70's.
Not to say that people don't release them (especially Chinese New Year), but they're not that popular here.

Ufo Sighting 31st May 3:40 am England
As you all know i have seen a few of these all moving erratically, I've been waiting with my camera for 3 weeks for this to happen again. Only the one this time though.
Not saying its an alien spaceship, But it definetely isnt a plane.
Late to the party...but first pic is a lantern.
The second pic; I came across the exact same pic on a website at the weekend about some monster in the back end of nowhere. It was part of a few pics with one showing a human for scale. America someplace I think.
Odd how it's on your phone too.
This makes me distrustful.
Also guys i had this on my camera from last year when it was snowing bad, Now not sure what it is but it creeped me out when i saw it.
I'm Really Looking Forward to get some opinions on what these could be but mostly i want to know if anyone else has seen this object over Chester-le-street area in england
