Could you state the location?

I know AZ pretty well and would be able to confirm your
statement.

>- The color is inconsistant with flares.

Camera equipment plus transfer to compressed video format could
all contribute to low video quality.

Yet, the video online is that of red/orange lights, matching the
C-130 video and pictures.

What color are flares supposed to be may I ask?

>- The duration seems too short for flares.

I already presented a video of a C-130 dropping flares, of which
the duration of the flares burning was nearly identical to that
of the video in question, 6-7 seconds. In light of the C-130
video would you still stick to that statement? And what is the
average time for flares?

Yet the Arch of the 'lights' falling is exactly as one would
expect when dropping something from a moving plane. The C-130
pics and video show that.

Well, I am not sure what data you are looking at exactly but
it's my conclusion these are flares being dropped from a plane.

The video in question has the following in common with
the C-130 video.

Same colors.
Same duration.
Same falling trajectory as you would expect from
dropping something from a plane.

I'm really not sure what data you are presenting here, yet, that
could qualify this video as anything but terrestrial in nature.
And IMO, flares from a moving plane.
