I set off around 10 UFO's the other night. All flew in formation, except one. My stupid minion crashed into a tree, so I cancelled the invasion.

All a bit embarrassing really.

My dear OP, they be lanterns. Sorry.

...and yes I did see the picture with long exposure.

Seen these so called lanterns up very very close, so i know all orange orbs are not lanterns, the only way i can describe them is mini suns amazing to see at close range, they can flare up 10x larger bink on and blink of and appear miles away and slowly demilitarize, zig zag at incredible speeds, i'm more then sure not all things that look like lanterns are indeed lanterns


I agree 100% with that last statement, but, by the same token, how can you be sure that it's just lanterns and one other phenomena?

An "orb" is just an "unexplained light" basically, right?

The sky is full of "lights" such as:

Stars/planets
Satellites
Aircraft
Meteors

There are lanterns, and other less common natural and man made phenomena too, but it's usually the common things, that almost everyone assumes they are familiar with that tend to catch most people out.

What you describe here could be explained by either a satellite flaring, or even perhaps a bright meteor. Both can take people by surprise in terms of brightness. We also perceive bright lights as being big and/or close, even if they are not, but that is the way our brains are wired. I don't mean to keep plugging my thread, but I posted a few examples as well as info on the subject.

Again, probably satellites. They don't always stay the same brightness. Some can blink or flare briefly, then go back to being faint or not visible at all, or "demilitarize" if you like.

They can also appear to zig zag, but it's just an illusion, as I pointed out in this post.

So, how can you be so sure that what you saw was not due to one of the possible causes I mentioned?

Edit to add:

Here are some examples of "orb-like" meteors and reentries. Although many do have tails/trains that is not always the case.



This is another good example, although it's an artificial meteor (the Stardust sample return capsule), and it does grow a tail eventually.

Over here in the other side of the world (Frankston, Australia), i saw something similar at around 10:20 new years eve. I saw an orange colored orb, quite high in the sky. At first i thought it was a lantern or a flare, but after observing it for about 4 minutes, i came to the conclusion that it was not. It was definitely not a flare, because it was going in a horizontal manner, in a perfectly straight line. When i could see the back of it, it was like there was 3 lights at the back. Eventually, after 4 minutes, the 'lights' went out on the orb, and it suddenly disappeared.

I don't think it was a lantern either, because it was going in a perfectly straight line, and all lanterns i have encountered went at some degree upwards. Also, there was only one, all night, i went to bed at sunrise, keeping my eye on the sky the whole time i was awake.

It's a shame that all sightings during new years eve lose an amount of credibility because of the alcohol (speaking of which, I had not been drinking before the sighting), fireworks, flares, etc.
