The ANITA mission was launched today in perfect weather. The balloon climbed straight up for quite a while after launch. Let's hope this very favorable weather holds out a bit longer for the ULDB launch. The ANITA instrument has very sensitive radio receivers on board "listening" for neutrino hits, so they would prefer to have some distance between them and the ULDB telemetry transmitters. We hope that the winds at altitude for ANITA will carry it over the horizon so we can take advantage of these great conditions as soon as possible.
