Library to Launch Weather Balloon

A weather balloon will be released from “the pit” south of Pickler Memorial Library, April 29. The balloon will carry several instruments, including a downward-facing camera to record its ascent and flight. Some of these instruments are currently featured in the library’s “Wild Weather” gallery display. A group organized by Don Bindner, assistant professor of mathematics, will begin inflating the balloon at 9 a.m. and launch between 10-11 a.m. The event may be postponed or canceled for weather conditions.
