I stumbled upon this picture. So detailed, yet incomprehensible.
This is a balloon popping at 1e5 feet. It was taking data about that solar storm on Jan 9, 2014.
Earth to Sky Calculus
A group of middle and high school science enthusiasts from Bishop, CA–launching balloons into the stratosphere to prepare for a satellite launch in 2014.
In winter 2011, Earth to Sky Calculus was just a name, a simple idea. Today, Earth to Sky has meaning, history, perhaps even a touch of fame. Really though, it’s just a group of geeky high school kids along with their crazy teacher reaching for the stars, or the edge of the stratosphere rather.
They used a Hero3+ camera I am impressed
