Oregon Bans Sky Lanterns
In effect January 1st, 2017, sky lanterns, or Chinese lanterns, are banned in Oregon. $2,000 fine for those who set them aloft.
So, no more reports of UFOs on New Year's. Or at least, reports due to those orange glowing lanterns. Of which, I had my sighting on New Year's in 2015. Coming up from the east and flying towards us (due west) we saw one orange glowing thing, then another, then more… a few brief excited moments, thinking "orange orbs!" "UFOs!" but quickly recognized they were not UFOs at all, but lanterns.
