Cirrus clouds, up close

Richard Anthony Morris and a couple of his friends attached a GoPro camera to a weather balloon and let if off from Abingdon, near Oxford, England. They just wanted to see what happened. We love the result.

    What if it had struck a plane?

    Absolutely beautiful. Loved the way it soared through and then seeing the cirrus above.

    I assume the jet stream is higher or was not present as it seemed quite calm up there.

    What a wonderful sequence of video clips. I am reminded of the reply God made to his servant Job
    “Can you lift your voice up to the clouds, that a flood of waters may cover you? Can you send forth lightnings, that they
    may go and say to you, ” here we are”? Who has put wisdom in the inward parts or given understanding to the mind?
    Who can number the clouds by wisdom ?

    No pun intended, but absolutely uplifting and the clouds looked as though the Antarctic was being videoed – wonderful.
