If you looked up in the skies late yesterday afternoon (July 29), you may have seen a rare sighting. The ReMax Hot Air Balloon was up in the air, over Sedalia.

While this area can see all sorts of planes, trains and automobiles around. There is just something about the majestic feeling of a hot air balloon that always draws my attention to the skies. It is still one of my biggest thrills I've had was to ride in a balloon once.

Unfortunately I got this photo as it was landing, but I imagine during the Missouri State Fair, you may see a couple of hot air balloons floating around. Last year, Kevin Walker got some amazing photos from the balloon.
