This is the Project Electric Eye high altitude ballooning video page. We started this project to obtain amazing pictures and video from 'near space' which lies between 65,000-350,000 feet. Most amateur balloons will reach an altitude between 65,000-120,000 feet.
With each launch we learn something new that we can incorporate on future launches to make our pictures and video even that much better. At temperatures reaching near -60 degrees and jet stream wind speeds sometimes approaching 120mph each launch and recovery is an enjoyable challenge !!
