High Altitude Weather Balloon

Uploaded 4/5/07

A brilliant -6 magnitude weather balloon launched over New Mexico was visible low in the east this morning, an encore to yesterday mornings view of a similar launch. This time I had my camera, and can share with you the beautiful sight of the spherical balloon at over 100,000 feet altitude as it was seen in our stunning morning sunrise!
