Tell me again about the Chinese lanterns.. because you know,, I asked around (few friends in councils, and i was out visiting in an area predominately
owned by Chinese) and most Asian/Australians arn't celebrating anything at this time.. nor really let of lanterns away from those celebrations..
fireworks maybe (man.. i lived in strathfield.. every weekend lol) but lanterns.. sory that's a MYTH
MANY, MANY years ago when i was more a "believer" than i am now, i saw my first chinese lantern, although that term was not known at that time and
it was something i have never seen before or heard about.
I was FREAKING out since i was convinced that i saw UFOs and i had no logical explanation what i saw. It took me a long time (over a decade) to learn
and admit that what i saw as some sort of toy balloon/chinese lantern and not an UFO.
* Despite their size, they can be INCREDIBLE bright.
* They can move pretty fast, even erratically, "UFO like" when the wind blows them around
If you have never seen one, call them "chinese lanterns" or "self made toy balloons with a fire underneath", whatever, you WILL not know what it
You might also notice that in the last years, they became more popular, also especially around holidays, eg. 4th July etc. people let them fly --->
more UFO sightings.
