Hang Gliding off of Mt. Lemmon

We had a pair of hang glider enthusiasts take off from the steep slope directly under the 60" dome Sunday afternoon. Here's the second launch just at the moment of flight. It was pretty impressive to watch them take off and climb in the thermals and upslope lift. They had to be well over 13,000 feet MSL when we finally lost sight of them!

I really like the motion in this image. You've almost got the gliders motion compensated for perfectly.
