I apologize for those coming to this site and expecting more. I had a 'required' upgrade to Joomla 3.4 last year, which requires a nearly total rebuild of the site design. However, I haven't really had the time to invest in that. The previous articles and history are all safe, but just not linked through the site menus. Someday........
Anyway, I was glad to see the crowd for NSTAR 16-A on April 16 at the Central Plains Severe Weather Symposium. Even though it was a little breezy, we were sheltered enough to get the balloon off the ground without any issues. Our landing was well short of forecast, occurring between Leshara and Fremont. Because we had driven well north in expectation of landing west of Herman, we could not get across both rivers and back to the south in time to see it land. We ended up in a hayfield about 1/4 mi off the road.
NSTAR 16-B is scheduled for May 14 at the Edgerton Explorit Center in Aurora NE, along with Central Nebraska Near Space Project.
