OLHZN-7 was the seventh high altitude weather balloon flight for Overlook Horizon High Altitude Balloons. This flight occurred launch on July 17, 2017 at 5:30:08pm ET (21:30:08 UTC). The focus of this flight was to have a short recovery distance and we were also looking for interesting wind patterns for this flight. Additionally, since our balloon facing camera failed early on OLHZN-6, we reused the main OLHZN-6 objective, which was to obtain video of the balloon burst event.
