UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:

Hello John,

These appeared to be quite bright and moving fast. I managed to take two photos with my digital camera, I've never really heard of Chinese Lanterns, but on viewing some videos this is a possibility. I have always been keen to watch the sky. After a sighting I saw in the fields where I live, when I was about 18 (I am now 60). But then it was very different. My wife and myself used to go back to the site but never saw anything again, this one I really don't know.
