Lights in the sky in Kennesaw

Ascended through some trees, like one of those paper lanterns, but the thing was huge and the light was brighter than a candle. It moved on a northwest trajectory completely crackling paper or sound of flames. I was in my neighborhood away from busy streets and no one was on the road, so ambient noise was not overriding the silence.....and then the thing just disappeared, not because it was so far away though, it just disappeared. My rational mind argues that it was one of those lanterns or swamp gas, but it was quite odd and I can't quite process what was seen.
