    Could be one of those Thai Hot Air Balloons that are very popular currently in
    Holland (don't know about the UK though) and reponsible for a spade of
    "fireball" and "UFO" reports here.
    Basically, it is a very small hot air balloon consisting of a sack of thin paper
    and a small burner under it. You light the burner and the things goes up and
    drift with the wind. When high up in the air they look like a slowly moving
    bright orange light. They are imported from Thailand.
