1. A lantern comprising:

  • a housing having a base and a cap located spaced from the base;

    a light scattering, translucent body supported within the housing on the base between the base and the cap to be substantially fully visible between the base and the cap and shaped and sized to appear to be a candle, the light scattering, translucent body having an upper surface, with the upper surface of the light scattering, translucent body at a spaced location relative to and under the cap; and

    a first light source located within the cap where it is spaced from the light scattering, translucent body and substantially hidden from view to an observer by the cap, and with the first light source and the light scattering body being mutually oriented so that light emitted from the first light source illuminates the light scattering, translucent body from its upper surface inwardly to produce a diffuse glow from within a region of the light scattering, translucent body.
