    Yeah been watching those. Seriously ADS-B is more important than science, that's why we're here!

    Potentially a balloon. FAA has it but nothing much there. Reserving party name is (FAA OFC of commercial space transportation ast-300.)

    So maybe. Don't see anything else on the runway other than the balloon.

    Shame the rest of the media weren't there this morning. In the past they showed up and all got sent home, too much cry wolf. Holefully there now though! Quality of one of the feeds is awesome

    Unless they have a helicopter doing aerial video alongside, it could be our payload transponder

    Of course it also has a big ol no-fly crash zone around it so narrows down the odds

    The CSBF Downrange Operations Upstream feed from the main balloon tracking page is great.

    Just found the below link in reference to the rego. Plus they would use a NZ chopper anyway. Also can't find any pictures or anything other than that and similar on FAA registry about that rego.

    The balloon on top used to help inflate has gone.

    As it looks like it has ADS-B. Big thanks to ZL4JW with T-NZWF1 for helping our addictions.

    Have fun ask you southerners tracking it. Don't think I'll see anything from Wellington. (Goes to Heywhatsthat to check)

    Uh oh.. I was about to say the same.

    This will cause it issues. Deflating over the valley.

    Now they wont be able to attach another leader to the top

    I've PMd FR24 facebook to hopefully have the alt filter removed
