UPDATE: (2/11/2019) FOUND!!!
Today (8/5/2017), we launched a high altitude weather balloon from Carrollton, GA. The flight followed predictions very well (except for a longer track due to less lift), until it reached 71,124 feet. At this point, the APRS telemetry fell silent several miles ESE of Fayetteville. If you live in the Fayetteville area, or near Blacksville or McDonough, please keep an eye out for a bright orange payload with a blue parachute. Below is a search map and a photo of our payload
