W5KUB-3 launched from Dayton passing slowly over Long Island at 11:51 AM EDT

I guess it's a pico balloon.  Or it's a perfect floater.  Consistently been doing 30 MPH.  Lined up perfectly for a grand tour of Long Island.  Passed right over Manhattan with laser precision.

Launched earlier this morning from Dayton.

A nice compact little squad of four pico balloons just passed Nantucket Island.   Traveling with speeds now in excess of 40 MPH.

W5KUB-3 trailing those of the Dayton Amateur Radio Association's trio of W8BI-11, W8BI-12, and W8BI-13.

KUB, BI-12, and BI-13 remarkably close together after the distance traveled so far.
