George, I will let others answer this.  My opinion is that they
would not as the distance is not that great.  The flare drop was
at a location on the North TAC range which has a bearing to the
west of our sighting.  Other eyewitnesses saw amber light
formations on that same night at closer range and in horizontal
motion.  We also have a video of two of these lights taken near
the Buckeye Hills where these lights are often seen.  This video
is taken in the afternoon in daylight (flares in daylight?) and
shows these objects near the crestline of some hills (no chutes
or smoke is visible) when one of the objects fades and rises
rapidly, hovers, and jumps.  We have had other eyewitness report
this type of behavior, but now we have video showing it.

Others are welcome to give their opinions.  I am just trying to
apprise the public of further facts that we have become aware of
from our continuing investigations.
