One of the comments mentioned that it was a Marine operation. Derrick Chennault, a former Marine based at the 2nd Marine Air Wing. "We used to regularly drop flares out of the back of our plane in the evenings for military exercises in that area. They are one million candle power each so they were pretty bright and can be seen from far away and floated down slow as they hung from a parachute," he mentioned. Marine Corps Air Station was also nearby so such testing does happen once in a while. But there is no statement from the marine forces too so there is no clarity what exactly it was.
