Not a UFO

Post by Brian »

Heard of "Google Loon". I hadn't until I saw the lunar image posted in today's (Feb 13 2017).

A fleet of large stratospheric helium balloons to bring internet coverage to those areas where it's not readily available. Luckily (?) I don't think they are currently lurking over the UK but who knows?
