This is the second trip of my home made high altitude weather balloon photography project, Pacific Star.
The balloon launched at 5:37pm,PST from Oxnard, CA and reached an altitude of 124,176' snapping photos and recording video along the way.
At its apex, the balloon burst, a parachute deployed, and the payload floated down for 35 minutes, landing near an olive orchard Northeast of Santa Paula.
