I've been saying this to myself for years now only in a comic sense, but I was sharing my quote today with a friend and come to think of it... I've never seen a weather baloon with my own eyes.
Just wondering f anyone else has. I've seen pictures, but I refuse to believe in them until I see one with my own two eyes. If you can convince me otherwise please feel free to try.

They're hard to identify, being round and all, but here is a good place to start.

Apparently, with the right contacts and the right price you can buy them too.

Good point. Have you ever noticed that weather balloons is our govenrments first escuse for UFO sightings? Its like as soon as our government gets a UFO report they're like " Nope had to be a crashed weather balloon." of something like that. Thats just my take on things.

Do you expect the Government to panic and start running around the room yelling "OMG @#$@!#$ OMG. WTF IS THAT. EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" ?

The answer is no. What would you do in that situation?

Weather Balloons do exist. My grade school class launched one 30 years ago...and they are commonly available and not as expensive as you might think.

However, it's much cheaper to use a Dry Cleaning Bag. Suspend an Aluminum Can from the bottom, throw in a votive candle, fill the Dry Cleaning Bag with some Butane gas from a Bic Lighter, light votive candle and let it go. It makes it to radar detection height in little time, with the Aluminum Can being more than enough to set off FAA Radar systems and trigger a UFO alert, and at night looks stunning when captured on film...about a minute later it will combust into flames leaving nothing for scrambled fighter jets to find. Kids around my neck of the woods do this all the time...frequently enough that you begin to believe in the Weather Balloon excuse.

Got any friends in the Navy? Meteorologic data is collected by them. For some reason the fly-guys want to know what the air's like at 30 angels.

Maybe aliens come here in weather balloons, ever think of that? How convenient a cover story, it's a weather balloon. What you don't know is that weather balloons ARE the recovered alien technology. Just look at Roswell. Maybe aliens come to this planet for the awesome ballooning that our thick atmosphere provides.

Check out the NASA Columbia Scientific Balloon project. Very high tech, able to launch 8-10k lbs payloads placed in high atmosphere orbits for over a month. They can even set them down for retrieval. Used for Lidar mapping and hi-def cam imagery.

One cool thing... they got links to some of the balloons that bring up their gps locations pinned on maps.

You have a very dumb approach. You won't believe anything if you don't see it first hand? How ignorant is that? I guess you don't believe in Antarctica too, right?
