Under normal circumstances I would call for a Knowledge - Arcana roll from those asking... but these lanterns are common knowledge, at least to anyone who's traveled a lot, so I'll tell you!
Big Smiles, Sweetie

Lanterns of Celestia (as they are formally known) are lanterns or braziers that contain magically enchanted kindling. They have two effects: they speed up the natural recovery of living beings and make rest more restful than it otherwise would be in the wilderness, and the area in which they shine is subtly imperceptible to monsters and even those ponies who have irrevocably forsaken Celestia and ponykind. This won't help if an adventurer attacks a monster from within its effect, but it does mean that a group of adventurers can sit around the lantern and not be disturbed by wandering monsters while they rest.

They're uncommon in the grand scheme of things, but both the Equestrian Army and the Adventurer's Guild keep a list of all known lanterns and their locations, so they're not hard to find if you know where to look. Most of them are located in dangerous areas where their effects are most useful, and they're often placed in some sort of shelter to protect from wind and rain. They require occasional upkeep in the form of renewing the kindling and making sure no one's vandalized them, although they tend to be free of sabotage since anypony who can actually perceive one would probably find it too useful to destroy.

Is there, by chance, a Lunar equivalent?

No. The Lanterns use a combination of low-level healing magic (specifically, the type to speed up natural recovery) and a permanent "Sanctuary" spell, which is Celestia's domain much moreso than Luna's. Luna tends to be much less... subtle, about her magic, and her tactics in dealing with threats.

I apologize again, but I've got a good reason this time - I have a job now. Unfortunately, I actually don't have a lot of free time in given day... though I'll try and post tomorrow.

It's safe to say we are ready to leave now. We'll take those rations they were offering and be on our way...
