Evening TV In Albuquerque said it is a scientific research balloon launched from
Ft. Sumner, NM. Big sucker. I think they said it was 400' diameter, capable of
a multi-ton payload. It was at 125,000' around 22:00 MDT last night (Thursday),
near the AZ-NM border, still in sunlight. I was not listening as closely as I
should have. I might have some details wrong. Apparently it generated a number
of UFO sightings.
