Jargon Buster: Haltere is a modified wing and can be found on all flies, such as house flies, blow flies, midges, and flower flies. These “drum-stick” looking structures are balance organs that oscillate and act as gyroscopes during flight. They are easily seen on crane flies.
Standing down from launch today due to unfavorable weather in the flight path. Our next launch opportunity is Saturday, May 30 at 3:22 p.m. EDT, or 19:22 UTC
