What is a Sky Lantern?
Sky Lanterns, also known as Wish Lanterns and Konming Lanterns, can be thought of as a miniature hot-air balloons that can launched in your back yard for a special event or occassion.
The lantern itself is made of lightweight biodegradeable tissue paper on a bamboo frame with a small wax fuel cell suspended in the middle. Just light the wax fuel cell and the lantern fills with hot air, causing it to rise gently into the night sky.
What do Sky Lanterns look like?
If you've never seen one for yourself, it is really a magical experience. Imagine a glowing balloon silently rising high into the night sky, like a little star rising from your back yard.
Your lantern will keep climbing until the wax fuel cell burns out. Once it's finished, the air inside the lantern will cool and it will return silently back to earth. And don't worry, our Sky Lanterns are designed to be environmentally-friendly with biodegradable materials.
Where do Sky Lanterns come from?
The first Sky Lanterns were invented centuries ago by a Chinese military officer as a signal beacon. The lanterns have been a part of Asian culture ever since, and today they are a magical part of festivals like Loi Krathong in Thailand.
Thai people actually believe that the Sky Lanterns will carry their worries and cares away on the evening breeze as they float gently away.
