Multiple orange lights in the sky

A witness observed numerous orange lights in the sky that appeared stationary. The lights appeared to be stacked vertically and rotated counter clockwise 90 degrees. The witness left to obtain his phone and upon his return he noticed about half of the objects had disappeared. Within a short time, the rest of the lights began to dim and faded out. The witness feels they could have been Chinese lanterns. From what he described, that is a very possible explanation.

There have been many similar reports both last year and this year all across the state. In some cases we are quite certain that the lights were indeed Chinese lanterns or some other similar home-made hot air balloon devices. Some of these luminous light observations, however, seem more curious.
