2010 Balloon Glow

Demonstration of a burn without the balloon
This is about as exciting as it got.
I think I was supprised that altemeters, balloon temperature and vertical speed indicators were on board.
Aerostar Aurora 54k was the maker of this ride. The 54k indicates that the balloon can hold 54,000 basketballs. This was a single person balloon. The owner of this balloon gave a impromtu presentation about the mechanics of the sport.

Bottom line... We got rained out.  We actually had two opportunities to see balloons and the first time was cancelled due to high winds.  The second time was suppose to be the actually "Glow" at 8:30pm and it was raining.  Oh well.  Maybe next year.

This is what we wanted to see but did not!  This is a balloon glow.
