Hi Kentaro

Thanks, I looked at the web page but couldn't get the video to
play. The text report is certainly interesting, but raises
questions too. Have you looked into this one yourself? What
would you list as the strong reasons why this meandering light
could not be, say, a fire balloon (Thai lantern)?

I note that several witnesses were reminded of a balloon. The
small size, erratic slow motion and colour
(red/orange/red'white/white-orange) seem to fit in a general

I notice that the text points out that a balloon would follow
the wind, but neither the wind speed(s)/direction(s) nor the
object direction(s) appear to be given (unless I am missing
something in poor translation). Certainly the inferred course is
erratic - but the altitude is said to be low over the roofs of
houses in a built-up hilly area where I can imagine that a
variable light breeze combined with thermal currents might waft
something around erratically. Was this thoroughly looked into?

A long duration is asserted - but is this the proven duration of
one continuous video? Or is it a reported sighting duration? -
or even a figure compounded from times given by several
different observers (whose watches might not have been
synchronous etc). This is not made clear.

Thanks for any clarification you can offer.
