K4UAH-6 Landing | Days 152-157 | Week of 08/01/2021

After 157 days, K4UAH-6 has finally landed, bringing to a close one of our most impressive runs yet. Beginning the final week over Western Alaska, K4UAH-6 traveled across the Northwest Territories of Canada before moving south over the central United States. Passing close by Chicago and getting as far south as central Kentucky, K4UAH-6 swept up across New England crossing over the Eastern edge of Canada and into the North Atlantic for one final time. With the final transmission at 4:38 p.m. GMT on August 6th, K4UAH-6 has finished an impressive flight helping us improve our understanding of our atmosphere and provide valuable academic opportunities to a multitude of students.

K4UAH-6 in Flight | Days 145-151 | Week of 07/25/2021

K4UAH-6 maintained its new normal path this week, beginning with a predicted upward sweep over central Russia. Slowing as it crept northwards, K4UAH-6 flew north over the Kara Sea, crossing into the Arctic circle yet again. Over the next 48 hours, it moved east and then south, again making landfall over northeastern Russia. Transmitting sporadically, it changed course again, now moving east not far north of the Mongolian border. Moving over the Sea of Okhotsk, K4UAH-6 spent its final day moving along the Alaskan archipelago. HYSPLIT currently does not have an accurate model, as it is approaching a divergence of currents.
