Launch Prediction website
Hello, we will be using this website to predict where to launch and recover the balloon. http://habhub.org/predict/
We plan on launching in May or June, somewhere between Yakima, Wa and Moses Lake. It all depends on what the winds are doing when we get close to launching. The website only allows 4 days in advance predictions.
We have to make sure that we stay away from the mountains and water, so depending on what the CUSF Landing Predictor says is what will determine where we launch from.
The balloon should travel approx. 50 to 150 miles from launch site to landing site. The winds have currently been taking the balloon north east from the launch site on the CUSF Predictor site. We will be posting the website that will track the balloon live when we launch. You will be able to see the flight updated every 10 minutes when it is in the air.
Thankyou very much for your support! Darwin and Tobey Wadel
