Glowing Orange Ember Like Lights Over Lansing Michigan (Chinese Lanterns)

Date: March 25 and 26th, 2011
Time: 10:20 p.m.

Last night there were 2 glowing orange ember-like lights moving independently, but along same course, rising in altitude until gone. Silent. Too erratic for planes, too silent and close to each other for copters.

Tonight, the same description, but only single object. Same time, 10:20pm. Seemed to rise right from our neighbor's yard, and move right through ours over our house and across street in time it took me to get outside. So close, I feel like I could identify glow of open flame beneath circular white canopy of fabric. Some sort of balloon or Chinese lantern. Much smaller than hot air balloon.

Sightings in Waverly area of Lansing of St. Joe between Snow and Waverly roads. Moving SW. I've set my alarm to watch again tonight with camera.

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential. website:

  1. I saw something quite similar tonight (8-29-12) just a few short miles from where this previous sighting was noticed. My girlfriend and I noticed very similar lights moving straight into the night sky and then seemingly tumbling towards the earth from Ionia St. in downtown Lansing. These were also moving from East to West in the nightime sky. When they flew over her house they appeared more amorphous, kind of like balloons, with the orange glow.
