It has long been tradition in Chinese culture to release sky lanterns at a time of celebration, rejoicing or feasting, so much so that the tradition has really caught on in the west, so much so that a 'fleet' of these amazing sky lanterns were mistaken for a fleet of flying saucers, or UFOs as people refer to them. Sky lanterns have been a tradition in China for hundreds of years and were originally used as military signals as far back in time as 3rd century China and strategically launched during times of war, incursion or hostilities.

Sky Lanterns became a frequent sight booming starting from August 21st 1950 up to now. They're usually observed and are well-known in events, parties, and anniversaries. Nobody who would likely declare that they aren't captivated or awestruck through the sight of these beautiful lanterns or lanterns as they are commonly known. Because they glow the skies either at evening or of course within the early morning, you cannot but acclaim that there is physics in action. Chris Freville did a bit of study and came up to what best describes how this lanterns raised into the sky and keep it there for at very least fifteen to twenty minutes at any given time.

According to Chris Freville, the fundamental principle will be the use of hot air flow increasingly going up in a much cooler setting. When heat fills the sky lantern, hence warming it, the reaction and immediate effect would be that the sky lantern goes upwards, similar to a bigger hot air balloon. The reason being, hot air is lighter in weight than cooler more dense air thus the key reason why the sky lantern begins flying or certainly drifts upwards. The body gathers heat that is produced by the hot air from the wax fuel portable which it lighted before the lantern release. And then after around one to two minutes the body of the lantern has adequate heat for the sky lantern to go up and move upwards to the sky. Subsequently, the wax fuel is constantly fill the lantern with this particular hot air which explains why the lantern does not fall down. It'll nonetheless gradually move down again as soon as the wax fuel cell has totally burned out. That is when the lanterns which are also known as Oriental lanterns gradually parachute again down to ground.

When you use Sky Lanterns you will need to take care much like when you are using fireworks, though these lanterns tend to be safer. The reason being it runs on the naked flame. All Chinese lanterns have instructional guides and basic safety guidelines that have to be firmly followed. Basic safety is extremely important in the use of these sky lanterns.
