I have seen ET

Has anything happened since 6.30?

09/10/2012 at 19:08

Yes, cancelled. YOU asked me to get it stopped. They got my text!

09/10/2012 at 19:08

Yes, I think the Red Bull website has crashed!

At least, it's not talking to me.

09/10/2012 at 19:08
@Gary...well said! I know what I saw, but have no idea what it was!
09/10/2012 at 19:09

Cancelled altogether or postponed till later today or another day?

I thought the balloon had gone up?

09/10/2012 at 19:16

Cancelled for today due to wind.

And there also seem to be technical problems with the website.

09/10/2012 at 19:16

Postponed as far as I heard. I had to leave the room. He had wind problems.

09/10/2012 at 19:17

Talking of that.................................you don't want to know

Hope you do see the Northern Lights, P. Petal. Too cloudy and too far south here.

Fascinating sighting, Figrat. I'm not sure these unexplained things are from other worlds but UFO's all the same.

I think the launch is delayed again because of the wind. Not a good idea to have beans for tea before attempting to break the sound barrier

UPDATE: Skydiver Felix Baumgartner's first attempt to make the world's highest jump on Tuesday (Oct. 9) from a balloon over Roswell, N.M., was aborted due to high winds that made the daring feat too risky. The project, called Red Bull Stratos, will send Baumgartner freefalling faster than the speed of sound from an altitude of 23 miles (36.6 km) above the ground.

Red Bull Stratos officials have not yet set a date for the second attempt. Further webcast details will be provided as available.

Personally, I never believe 'official' explanations.

I know that the website crashed, or became unavailable, some time before this story came out. This story about 'wind' is probably a cover up for some kind of technical failure, or something else.

The cancellation might even have something to do with those unexplained white blobs.

Trust no-one!

Are they sure they didn't know what they were buying geoff. Playing dumb sometimes works!

09/10/2012 at 19:49

From all the films I have seen they are grown under lights in a spare room-yet they plonked it in the garden !!-little tip there for the "weed" fanatics

09/10/2012 at 20:07

I want to know how the police found it in their garden do they have a neighbour who twitches?

09/10/2012 at 20:19

The police had a filter tip-off
