It has been reported that a gigantic size balloon has escaped from Pacifica High’s class and is spotted floating over Orange County. The balloon is said to be 30-foot-long.
The balloon was a part of an experiment of the class. The class mates filled the balloon with the solar heat. During the experiment, the balloon lost control and it drifted away. The class Instructor Steve Doucette said that within 10 minutes, the balloon reached height of 1,500 feet.
Last time, the balloon was seen floating towards John Wayne Airport. The authorities of the airport were notified about the balloon, timely. However, it has been informed that the balloon had not entered the airport’s airbase.
The plan of the experiment was to make students learn as to why and how hot air rises. A student, while explaining about the incident, said, “And then it was floating, and oh oh, I looked over at the other guys and they were scared, like, uh uh uh…Next thing I know, it‘s gone, and it’s been very enlightening”.
The incident took place in the morning but till evening no evidence of the disappearance of the balloon was provided. It is yet to be gauged as to where the balloon has floated to. However, it is expected that with sunset, the balloon would descend to earth as the hot air trapped in it will be cool down.
The balloon is said to black in color. The students tried to catch the balloon when it got loose but as the size of the balloon was gigantic it became hard for them to grab the balloon. It was a little experiment which within few minutes became dangerous for innocent lives.
