Balloons aloft.

I have had some enquiries about balloons appearing on Flightradar24.
They are departing from the Air SafarisTekapo strip.
Have a look at this comprehensive AP site

Also check out the Air Safari facebook pages. Drill down a few days for some launch pictures.
These balloons are visible to the naked eye - even at 60,000+ feet.

Also by pure chance NIWA/NASA have been running the Deep Wave project releasing balloons.
This project also uses the Gulfstream V N677F and the Falcon 20 D-CMET  based at Christchurch which also show up on Flightradar24
Pic shows Falcon 20 D-CMET arriving back at NZCH on Tuesday. Thanks to Bargeldo1
Hope that sheds some light on events.
