The release and launch were a success!
We released the balloon at 6:23AM PST, right around dawn.
The balloon is in the air and ascending v e r y s l o w l y.
We launched from the ITT parking lot in Lathrop and it is currently heading due south -- exactly where I don't want it to go.
Current estimates are that it will land somewhere near between the 101 and Henry Coe State Park.
The balloon can be tracked live here: http://aprs.fi/?call=KJ6ERK-11&mt=roadmap&z=11&timerange=3600
