OLHZN-6 was the sixth high altitude weather balloon flight for Overlook Horizon High Altitude Balloons. This flight launched on May 20, 2017 at 1255pm ET (16:55 UTC) from Canandaigua Academy. This flight featured our first upward facing (balloon facing) camera that was intended to record the moment of the balloon burst in slow motion as well as the parachute performance during the descent phase.
