Football in the Sky


Put some lights on this thing and you could have a pretty convincing UFO at night. This peculiar football-mimetic hot air balloon went wafting over my apartment complex this morning.

There are quite a few hot air balloon owners and pilots around. If you see a lot at the same time, there's probably some "event" going on, but those are mostly on weekends.

The comment about "lights" is interesting, but my FAA regulations, balloons cannot fly before sunrise and must land before sundown as they do NOT have lights.
