On the balloon's descent, the last position recorded at around 19:15 this
evening, was at a height of 10,000 feet.

After having been on the ground for about 3 hours, the payload has started

It appears to be "on the ground", about 2000 feet above sea level, on Mission
Mountain, 4 miles East of Murphy NC. Precise co-ordinates are:

The maps show it to be about 200 yards from the ends of three different roads
which lead up the foothills of Mission Mountain. 

Best wishes, and Holiday Greetings,
