Dick Roberts, sending up a balloon to measure ceiling height over the airport.  A stop
watch, probably in his left hand, is used to time the ascent of the balloon from the surface
until it enters the clouds to determine the cloud height above the airport. The small white
structure is where other atmospheric measurements are taken as part of a weather
observers duties. The data is then recorded on a National Weather Service form and the
weather observation transmitted.
