2. Hold Lantern upright and have helper light fuel patch OR turn upside down, light fuel patch and turn upright quickly.
3. Allow the air inside the lantern to heat up (45-120 secs) while both handlers hold Lantern upright and securely. As the Lantern fills with hot air, you will see it taking shape.
