Title: Sterling 7 June 2013 AM Launch
Post by: ChrisSmolinski on June 07, 2013, 1406 UTC
This one was forecast to track pretty much overhead, as was Tropical Storm Andrea. So I moved the dish antenna inside and aimed out the window, then switched to the discone when the sonde got north of me. So the results are not as good as yesterday.

Pretty close to the predicted path at first, but the landing was way off.  The burst was at 27.755 km. The parachute seemed to work today.

Today's actual path:
