Tonight the NC Near Space group will launch a balloon in honor of Yuri's Night and this 50th anniversary of manned space flight. The plan is to send a balloon and camera up at sundown to capture some sunset photos. Everyone is invited. The launch will take place at approximately 7:45 pm at Lake Anne (35.870277N, 78.731428W). All are welcome to meet at TechShop at 7pm before the team heads over to the launch site.
More information, including balloon tracking details, will be available on Twitter. This event is currently scheduled to happen rain or shine.
