Best Shot Yet of that Imaging Balloon Flying Over DC


@flandub tweets us:

“@PoPville yo, what’s flying around K and 6th NW right now? Looks like maybe a camera attached to that bubble.”


@ep_jhu tweets us the great shot yesterday:

“An @AirPhotosLive balloon is going up over Mt Vernon Sq. at 6th & NY Ave NW @PoPville”

Ed. Note: Our first sighting was back in October 2009. Last year we learned “The balloon was launched by Digital Design and Imaging Inc. to take aerial photos of the District’s skyline as part of the joint Height Master Plan the DC Office of Planning and the National Capital Planning Commission are conducting in response to a Congressional request.”

    I’d think that was the Phillie Phanatic’s head floating up there, but we played the other Pennsylvania team yesterday.

  • They are doing this over the 655 New York Ave development. It was being launched from the parking lot to the west of the old Fringe ticket office.
