This balloon didn't have APRS on it - for ~98% of its flight it would have
been out of range anyway.

However, there is another long-distance APRS-equipped flight in progress
(unmanned):

This particular balloon transmits daytime only, so between that and needing
ground stations listening on 144.39 the data may be hit and miss.  It's
been aloft for about 8 days, launched from central California and now near
the Caspian Sea.
