Project Loon over Puerto Rico

Saturday we were stringing up our festoon lights. We had taken them down to secure them before hurricane Maria. Good thing too because that porch that overlooks our koi pond was swept by the top of the breadfruit tree when the storm blew that off.


Renée said look up in the sky. That can't be an airplane. For a moment I hoped it was a flying saucer (there are recorded sightings here in the sixties) but then we realized it was a google balloon from project loon.  



I took out my AT&T cell phone right away and tried to connect. But even with direct line of sight I got nothing so either it wasn't on or you need Internet first to update your phone first so it can make the correct handshake.  



Even without internet the festoon lights look good.
