OLHZN-20 was the twentieth high altitude weather balloon flight for Overlook Horizon High Altitude Balloons. This flight launched on September 5, 2019 at 7:35:06am EDT (11:35:06 UTC) from Canandaigua, NY. This flight was a top-secret collaboration project with popular YouTuber, Just Dustin. Dustin contacted us in August 2019 and originally wanted to fly his YouTube Gold Play Button to the edge of space and back and film it. We discussed numerous possibilities and setups and ultimately decided, due to the massive weight of the Gold Play Button, it would be best to operate a flight with his Silver Play Button instead.
