A friend living in the Eastlake area reports she and two others saw beautiful floating globes of light over either Maple Leaf or Green Lake last week.

Our sister site My Wallingford posted in November about a memorial at Gas Works Park that involved sky lanterns – an Asian tradition involving airborne paper lanterns heated by candles. The photo at right, from Matthew McSheehy’s Photography, appeared in the My Wallingford post.
Anybody know what was going on last Thursday night?
