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.
A wonderfully sunny, clear day for launch (Ground-level view)
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…
Much better @ 1500 feet
Farmers Fields for as far as the eye can see!
Nearing 6000 feet…that’s a long way down!
Does anyone recognize the body of water in the background?
The sky is darkening…as we near 10 000 feet!
Things are a little turbulent at ~13 000 feet!
A little closer to that body of water… HINT: 44.18479, -79.71455
There it is again!
We’re NOT in Egbert anymore!
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!
Yup that’s the curvature of the Earth! Just passing by Newmarket!
~50 000 feet and climbing…
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!
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!
