Just after sunset the balloon was still high and in the south. It’s 100,000 feet high, and about 50 miles south of where I am.

This one is above Fort Sumner, where it launched a few hours ago.
Lumix GF1 held up to the eyepiece of an 80mm refractor.
It was still pretty low from my viewpoint in Tijeras, NM. I had to dodge some trees to get this photo.
the research balloon is drifting right along…
now it’s north of Albuquerque
another day …another balloon.
This one was launched from Ft. Sumner this morning.
Photo was made by hand holding a camera up to the eyepiece of my 80mm refractor.
This from Friday night….I love it when comets swoosh past a neat asterism like this!
