Trans Atlantic Crossing update

Nearly 24 hours after the launch of the trans Atlantic crossing attempt by Near Space Ballooning and Near Space Photography and their SPOT tracker has checked in.

The location report came in at 16:10 GMT and showed the balloon over the Eastern American seaboard. SPOT trackers can ping of a location at high altitude and hopefully this is an example of this, and not a water landing. The team hope that the balloon will cross the Atlantic in 58 hours.
