I saw a handful of them in 2010 out the back of a party. We were all a bit worse for wear, but they didn't look much like floating candles - moved fast, dipped then rose high.
Turned out they were indeed lanterns. I'm glad to have seen them like that because I can now understand why people are reluctant to accept they are lanterns. With a good breeze, they're very impressive.
At 5:30 AM, I went outside to smoke a cigarette, and I eyeballed a large, amber light hovering in the sky above my home. At first I thought it was a star or planet.
Abruptly, the light started darting around. I rubbed my eyes and shook my head, but the thing was still there, darting around like a hummingbird. It's odd, but I felt like the thing was winking at me. I mean, it WAS winking.
Then, when I made a move, it made a move.
I couldn't determine the object's altitude. It looked like it was high in the sky, but it was reacting to my moves, which makes me think it was pretty low altitude. I was kind of mesmerized by it. I could see it rocking left and right, like a pendulum. It looked like a light bulb. I mean, I could see the filaments, right.
Then it rose straight up and moved off to the south with a kind of zig-zag fishtail move. Zip, it was gone.
