Chinese lanterns don't generally light up clouds and they only last for 2 0r 3 blocks, they are dim and too many people are putting sightings off as lanterns...
The lanterns - effectively, mini-hot air balloons composed of flame, paper and wire - cost as little as £2 each and can travel as far as 30 miles,

In this video the Mayor of Pradera Valle said that the army told him they released a flare
and the wind moved the flare over the city causing the commotion among the people who
thought it was a UFO. Mayor Adolfo Escobar made some inquiries and got the answer by
the army, by consequence they closed the case.
