Visible Camera Image from NearSys 18F.

The 179th NearSys mission took place west of Yakama, WA on 18 May 2018. One of the BalloonSats was the HorizonCam and one of its images is shown below.

Open Window (Bellevue, WA) student BalloonSats. This is right after burst at 88,344 feet. All chaos has broken out at the initiation of descent. The BalloonSat chain has whipped around by 90 degrees. The Apeman A60 camera is equipped with a wide-angle lens that distorts the view. The Earth does not appear this curved at such a low altitude.
