The Links to Locate and Track tab have been updated with the Jestream for tomorrow, we’ll wait for tomorrw to get the more current location and altitude.

The way we’re traveling, I’m expecting wakeup around 11:00 pm CDT this evening.

  1. It’s inspiring to see another great day for our balloon. Our altitude is steady, above 45,000 ft., close to our ideal altitude. It looks like stretching the balloon, makes a difference. Can’t wait to see where we end up this evening.
