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.

    Amazing. Do you have to get clearance from ATC. ?

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

    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 ?

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

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

    What if it had struck a plane?
