Brian Skiff informed me that Becky Ramatowski informed him of another
approaching balloon that was launched from Fort Sumner, NM.  The real-time
path plot can be found here.


If it keeps moving at its current rate, it should be just west of Prescott
at sunset.  If you're in Phoenix, it might appear low in the
north-northwest sky.

Like the last one, this is not a weather balloon, rather, it's an astronomy
balloon.  The purpose of this payload is to measure polarization of the
cosmic microwave background radiation.  And if that sentence seemed like I
know what I'm talking about, I got it here:
