15,185 lanterns

In the Philippines, a record number of paper lanterns were released into the night sky under the sponsorship of the Middle Way Meditation Institute, a Thailand-based organization. The organization said Friday's event celebrated "world peace through meditation".

The Guinness Book of World Records confirmed that the previous lantern-release record of 12,740 had been broken.

Wouldn't it be nice if peace were as easy as a record-breaking beauty in the night sky?
