Be careful!   According to Fox News this blimp is filled with highly explosive helium!   Taken, I assume, from the core of the sun!

    It does NOT have APRS on it, but we need people in MD and PA to look up in the sky for it and user your APRS to send DF bearing lines so we can track it.

    I have not had time to VERIFY this, but am throwing it out there anyway.

    This is what APRS is desiged to do.  Just enter y our bearing line in a DF packet and we can all see the plot on APRS.
