Pictures: Balloon Glow

2002-09-01 - In the evenings of the Colorado Springs Balloon Festival, the have the 'Balloon Glow'.
This is where they get the hot air balloons set up on the ground, and have the balloons do burns. When they do the burns, the whole hot air balloon glows brightly. They have an annoucer on a big PA system, who gets the balloon pilots to burn in syncronization, so that a large number of the balloons are glowing at the same time. It is an amazing thing to see. It is wild to be in the middle of it!
