Alien craft don't usually flicker. If lit up - they usually look like stars, tungsten or strip lights in the sky. Constant brightness, perhaps dimming and dissapearing - but no flicker.
If these things flickered, they were chinese lanterns, without a doubt.
The altitude and the manner in which it moved, and the color was soo vibrant and did not glimmer AT ALL.
Ahh, it appears not all did. Well what I'd be interested to know if any of these objects moved along any known flight paths.

Uh, hey I actually saw this tonight. My mouth kinda dropped when i read the descriptions of those sightings. I have been trying to find a logical explanation for myself all night since. And no this was not any way or shape or form a firecracker. This object was as high if not higher than an airplane. Sorry no pics, it happened so fast by the time i realized what i was looking at it had already sped away. At first I thought it was a firecracker, but then i realized it was traveling more like an airplane would but more of an ascending pace. In nc and was looking South-East. at a 50 degree angle. This best way to describe it for me would be a flying molten ball several thousand feet in the air.
...and seriously, people reported STRAIGHT flight paths....as many others have said, a lantern would go with the wind and change directions with the wind...

If sightings are higher on the 4th of July, I'd say it's simply because more people are looking up.
