OLHZN-9 was the ninth high altitude weather balloon flight for Overlook Horizon High Altitude Balloons. This flight occurred on August 21, 2017 at exactly 1:10:00pm ET (17:10 UTC) during the total solar eclipse in the United States. The focus of this flight was to capture video footage of the solar eclipse shadows as well as to solidify our radio tracking systems to ensure that our repairs we made on OLHZN-8 are still working well.
