In June 2013, videographerÂ Bryan ChanÂ and a group of his friends launched a weather balloon from Tuba City, Arizona, equipped with a GoPro Hero3, Samsung Galaxy Note II, and aÂ Sony Camcorder, in the hopes of capturing high-altitude, aerial footage of the Grand Canyon.
The group was successful in the mission, but failed to locate the cameras once they had descended. Two years later, and much to their excitement, they were found by a biker, and returned to them. Here is the footage they captured.
Within just nine minutes of launching the balloon, it had already reached 23,000 feet.
It wasn't long until it had ascended into the stratosphere, where it captured breathtaking aerial footage of the Grand Canyon and the Sonoran Desert.
After rising for nearly and hour and a half, the balloon reached its maximum altitude of 98,660 feet.
