Georgia, they need your help! Missing Balloon.

On Sunday, November 6th at 11:54 AM EST, a high altitude weather balloon lifted off from Carrollton, Georgia. At about 1:10 PM, we lost communication with the balloon. The last coordinates showed it at 63,498 feet and 5.4 miles northwest of Union City.

I have created this map to show the balloon’s path, a trajectory prediction for that day, two predicted landing sites, as well as the travel routes of two vehicles that were searching for it.

We would appreciate anyone in and around the area who would be willing to help search for our payload, as well as anyone with suggestions about where to look. If you find it, or have any questions, you can contact Thank you. WEB
