I was under the impression that this was deemed to be a
"weather balloon". However chasing a weather balloon ten miles
in three minutes suggests speeds of up to 3.3 miles per minute,
or 200 miles/334 kms per hour. That's unusually fast for a
weather balloon-unless of course the south coast was in the grip
of a major, history-making hurricane-which of course it wasn't.
Of course helicopters don't fly in 200 mph hurricanes either. I
guess I should have viewed this earlier.
