Air Balloons Kaleidoscope

In September 1783, a sheep, a duck and a rooster were the first passengers on a hot air balloon. The balloon climbed to a height of about 6,000 feet and traveled more than one mile. The first manned flight on a hot air balloon was on November 21, 1783 and the passengers were Jean-Francois Pilatre de Rozier and Francois Laurent. They started from the centre of Paris and flew for a period of 20 minutes.
Nowadays thousands of people throughout the world enjoy the sights and pleasures of ballooning. 

Skies filled with colorful balloons ...Enjoy!!!
