Tonight We Released Balloons Number 43 And 44.

We are rapidly approaching release number 50. Tonight 43 and 44 soared into the night sky and it is inevitable that soon one must be found!

We released a two balloon bunch and another with several balloons.

Two ready to be set free from the balcony in Atascocita, Texas.

They drifted up slowly, the balloons were about 12 hours old. As they faded into the distance they became less visible. I am only almost sure they cleared the pine trees lining the golf course.

Here's the big bundle with extra long ribbon ready to fly. It was windy and they really were getting pulled around.

Takeoff! This big bundle shot up much quicker. The strong wind pulled them sideways but they easily cleared the trees and were visible for quite a while longer than the three.

I will try to get some daylight balloon releases done soon so the picture quality should improve.

If you want to release your own please join the fun with the Balloon Release How-To Guide. Also, have you signed up for our e-mail list. I will e-mail you ONLY when a balloon is reported found!
