    Hello I am Max and I am really surprised that Google has found that the loon project to provide access to the internet has remote locations because as I read in this section geeknetwork.fr/projet-loon-google-deploie-ses-ballons-en-indonesie/ the connection speed is 10 mb / s google could find better than giving access to the 4G because with time 4G has vowed disparaître.apres this is my personal opinion but Actually I think that google would find a way as balloons .

    Thanks Brian. How accurate are the fr24 elevation readings? IT showed the balloon landing about 45 mins away from my house in a feild. I was almost going to drive to the area and see if it was being worked on. One of them is said to be at 500feet in the black rock desert now. Pretty remote area to be landing a balloon so I am thinking it might be a false reading

    Some Nevada info on the 3rd post on this thread.
    It talks about Google's balloon FCC license for some of the equipment it was carrying for those months.

    Does anyone have any real info on these. I saw one on fr 2 days ago and now have seen three. One apparently flew over my house last night. The flight patterns seem somewhat controlled. One flew down over sacramento and then headed back up and another flew directly over reno then changed course. I know it could be the wind changing but some of the turns are odd. I goggled one the other day and some dude has a vid on youtube calling these drones. I had a feeling that they were balloons when I first saw the speed and alt.
    How does socalbrian know that these are related to google?
