I’ve been enjoying some of the snapshots from Josh’s weather balloon as my desktop wallpaper, but started to wonder what, exactly, I was looking at. I managed to find a similar point of view from Google Earth satellite imagery that gives some idea of the altitude and location.

You might need to open it full size to see the legends clearly.
