A lantern is a portable lighting device or mounted light fixture used to illuminate broad areas. Lanterns may also be used for signaling, as 'torches', or as general light sources outdoors (such as camping). Low light level varieties are used for decoration. The term "lantern" is also used more generically to mean a 'light source' or the enclosure for a light source. Examples are glass pane enclosed street lights, or the housing for the top lamp and lens section of a lighthouse.

    “... It may be Prester John’s balloon
    Or an old battered lantern hung aloft
    To light poor travellers to their distress.”

    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    My tea is nearly ready and the sun has left the sky;
    It’s time to take the window to see Leerie going by;
    For every night at tea-time and before you take your seat,
    With lantern and with ladder he comes posting up the street.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
