Did others see UFOs?

Dear Editor,

Most people put stuff like this off as insane or a hoax, but between 11:20-11:30 p.m. on July 4 myself and two others counted seven glowing red-orange oval shaped objects crossing U.S. 280 and moving silently northeast along Double Oak Mountain.

They had too much altitude to be fireworks and were solid red-orange; no flashing lights like an aircraft.

Plus they were oval-shaped and silent.

Did anyone else see this? If so, please email dobnpap@bellsouth.net.

It was very bright and the area along 280 is heavily populated, so I expect at least another person saw what we did. It was extremely strange.

    What you saw were probly Chinese Lanterns in a cluster following the wind stream. We see them floating over our home often in the summer.
