The Long Awaited…SGTS Imagery and Data

The sorting of many photos that would best show the result of the hard work put forward by the Grade 6 class at Countryside Village is now here.

One short, “Blair Witch-like GoPro video” to start.  WARNING…if you are not a fan of spins this may not be the video to watch.

Must be getting ready to go, pictures/videos are being taken

Moments after launch, in the background the CARE facility in Egbert, ON

A little sideways…

IMG_1338

Much better @ 1500 feet

IMG_7053

Farmers Fields for as far as the eye can see!

IMG_1351

Nearing 6000 feet…that’s a long way down!

IMG_1357

Does anyone recognize the body of water in the background?

IMG_1364

The sky is darkening…as we near 10 000 feet!

IMG_1376

Things are a little turbulent at ~13 000 feet!

IMG_1374

A little closer to that body of water… HINT: 44.18479, -79.71455

There it is again!

We’re NOT in Egbert anymore!

IMG_1385

That sun is really bright today!

Moving quickly at this point (125 km/h) ... What could be helping us along so quickly?

Cool sun shot!

The darkness of space from 45 000 feet!

IMG_7124

Yup that’s the curvature of the Earth! Just passing by Newmarket!

IMG_1495

~50 000 feet and climbing…

IMG_1530

Things are a little hazy at ~65 800 feet, moments before burst! May have added a tad too much helium to this balloon ride!  We are just NE of Vivian, ON right now!

IMG_7205

You can see the trees that we would land in just a couple thousand feet below

Our payloads final resting place until its recovery 2 days later! 40+ feet up in a cedar tree just North of Whitby!
