A group of five amateur astronomers have launched a weather balloon with a camera, which took pictures of the French-speaking region of Switzerland.

The resulting pictures. Cool photos!

There's a company in the UK about to launch (so to speak) off the shelf self-assembly packages to launch your own balloon-camera. To maximise the presentations you really need a GPS map and altimeter trace, otherwise its just a pretty slide show.

In this case it looks like the camera had a lucky escape on landing!
