Is New Jersey Being Invaded by UFOs or Sky Lanterns?
"Once again, mysterious red lights in the sky have residents in north-central New Jersey scratching their heads.
The callers say they saw as many as 10 red lights floating in the sky, moving in unison and in the same direction as the wind from about 8:45 p.m. to 9 p.m.
No one knows where the lights are coming from, but a Michigan-based maker of Sky Lanterns says it could be his product. The lanterns have balloons and wax-infused cloth and are set aloft during celebrations."

My humble thoughts on this AP story:
If extraterrestrials traveled light years from a galaxy at the edge of the universe why in God`s name would they select New Jersey to fly over? Why would an intelligent race be fascinated by barbed wire fences, parking lots and auto body shops?
The fact that the lights were moving in unison and in the same direction as the wind is a small clue that perhaps they are balloons and not flying saucers. UFOs that fly close to the speed of light aren`t going to be subject to the whims of the wind.
New Jersey is the playground of Mafioso types and gang bangers, the police are busy fielding calls from assault and burglary victims. If a resident of New Jersey sees red lights in the sky he should drink another Bud, and not report the lights to the overwhelmed police.
This is not a case of little green men invading Earth, it`s the attack of the Sky Lanterns.
