AA6DY woke at Grid HN48ph at 9:52 UTC, 4:52 am CDT over the North Atlantic Ocean at an altitude of 13,910 meters. Danielle is now a Tropical Storm with sustained winds at only 70 mph and traveling at 14 mph.
The real good news is that we’re now in a faster Jetstream and will be flying towards land. The three images below, 1) Ventusky Jetstream showing easterly direction at 80 mph and higher towards France. 2) Windy.com showing cloud tops at 9Km starting September 10th at 5 am over France. 3) NOAA Hysplit Trajectory Model showing our balloon’s direction over 48 hours at 13.9Km
The Links to Locate and Track tab has been updated for tomorrow’s Jetstream on Ventusky. APRS.fi for AA6DY will updated throughout the day and HabHub will show other balloons around the world, Enjoy!
