Today for Daily Drawing Aurora teaches us how to draw a Hot Air Balloon. If you had the chance would you take a ride in the sky on a Hot Air Balloon?
Did you know . . .
- Hot air balloons are buoyant because the hot air inside the envelope, the large balloon, has a lower density than the colder air outside.
- The top of the balloon usually has a vent which allows the pilot to control the speed of ascent/descent (along with the burner).
- Hot air balloons can fly to amazing heights, the world record is over 21,000 metres! (68,900 feet). It’s tough to breathe up there so oxygen is needed from around 5,000 metres (16,400 feet).
