That’s another Loon LLC balloon. (https://loon.com/) Interesting company. I saw one of their balloons on my station flying in SE NM and just barely into TX.

Who knew running PiAware would be this interesting?

Two are near Seattle today, trucking along at 60k feet.

I am tracking one today (for the first time, as far as I know) - but it is flying about 20 miles out over the Pacific Ocean, roughly west of Long Beach, WA. I wonder what the benefit would be to being out there?

Edit: Just noticed two more over south Puget Sound, north of Olympia, WA
