March 4, 2019, 0426 UTC, Alejandro Patrón, El Reportero Urbano “Ciudad Constitución (California) 7:50 p.m., residents of the sub-delegation of María Auxiliadora, communicated to the emergency numbers because they observed crossing the sky of a luminous object of unknown nature. The above was made aware of elements of the Municipal Police, which were mobilized to the area, north of Ciudad Insurgentes. Near the El Piojillo ranch were found remains of what appears to be a satellite or an espionage device originally from China, because of the inscriptions that can be seen. Now there is no more information because everything happened suddenly. However, there are no reports of injured people in relation to this incident that is the most important and remains a good topic of conversation among neighbors.” (Loon balloon 432 was launched from Winnemucca, Nevada, Sept. 17, 2018, and remained in flight for 169 days.)

Nov. 14, 2018 Loon – These structures might look like they belong in Super Mario Bros. but they’re actually recently-installed Loon ground stations in Nairobi and Nakuru, Kenya. From these orb-shaped structures, internet connectivity is beamed up to a balloon 20km overhead. While the signal originates from places with connectivity, it can be sent across multiple balloons and hundreds of kilometers to areas without any infrastructure. That’s part of Loon’s secret sauce: We bring the internet from where it exists now to where people need it without the difficulty and expense of building lots of new ground infrastructure in between. With these ground stations installed in Kenya, and approvals from the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA), we’re planning to begin initial tests with balloons over Kenya in the first half of 2019 as we work to usher in Loon’s first deployment in Africa with Telkom Kenya.
