That was totally kewl!  I was watching it but had to turn away for a while then when I came back all I see is a post that was quite old at 6,475 feet. It seemded to loosing altitude at a steady rate (controlled descent?).  It crossed just noth of the Gardner Airport headed east when I had to leave.  Did you have to alert airports of it's approach?  And why is the last post now not where the rest of the tracking showed it earlier?

Very cool.

It made it to 106k feet.
The decent is when the ballon pops and is slowed by it's sauser shape.

Open the googls tracking and expand the time to several days, then you'll be able to see the track and the way the jetsream works. also the 6400 feet was the last gps signal that the net picked up by K1KWP

We will try to have the video and audio tracks on line some where.
