ANITA-3 was spotted today from an Aussie helo. We landed on January 8, after a smooth 22 day flight. We landed near Davis Station, an Australian base and are working with them to get the instrumentation back.


Balloon flights end when CSBF sends a termination signal that fires a guillotine strong enough to cut through several inches of steel cable. We decided to do this because the balloon was gainly latitude and headed out over the ocean. It's always a good idea to land near an established station as well to aide recovery.


Not a bad landing! She's nearly upright!
