Location of Sighting: Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada
Date of Sighting: October 29, 2015
Time of Sighting: 7:40 PM EDT
Description: I just saw 12 or 13 at least bright orange lights coming from direction of our airport. The time was approximately 7:40 PM. That is west of the city, but these seemed to have come more from the northwest and flew all in the same direction southeast. They seemed to be getting higher and then just disappeared. Not a sound came from these things. They were not planes commercial or private or helicopters. Lights on those type of aircraft are bright white and flash. These objects were not flashing and were bright orange. I have my sister-in-law as a witness. They were very strange.
More Information Sent by Witness: I called the airport and the operation manager told me he heard about it, but he was going to ask around and get back to me. I never did hear back. Some are saying maybe weather balloons. I don’t think so these flew across the sky and were bright orange. I can’t see that many balloons all flying the same direction almost exact same path and having that bright a light on it. I can’t explain it. I’m very curious though. Thanks for looking into it.
Note: The description of these lights fits Chinese lanterns.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.

My girlfriend and I saw the same thing October 30, 2015 at 8:45. We couldn’t think of what they might be. They were definitely not planes or helicopters.
Thanks for corroborating this report.
