Flying Paper Lanterns -- Sky Lanterns

Updated on October 11, 2014

Sky Lanterns Brighten Night Celebrations

When I attended my niece's wedding last year, after dark, they began lighting sky lanterns. I'd never seen these beautiful flying objects before.

Sky lanterns are like little hot air balloons; the heat from the flame expands the paper lantern and the lantern floats up into the sky. Then they drift along in the breeze and finally disappear as little dots in the dark night sky.
