Here's what you are looking for on Saturday starting at 10 AM EST: (pics)

All balloons are scheduled to go on display at all locations at 10:00AM (ET) until approximately 4:00 PM (local time) on Saturday, December 5, 2009. Should weather or technical difficulties arise with the launch, the display will be delayed until Sunday, December 6 or later, depending on conditions.

If, for any reason, the balloon is displayed in one location then moved to a second location, either location will be accepted. Entrants are required to register and submit entries on the event website. Latitudes and longitudes are entered in degree-minute-second (DDD-MM-SS) format as explained on the website. Coordinates must be entered with an error of less than 1.0 mile to be accepted. In the event that one or more balloons is never displayed, this fact will be noted on the event website and the rules adjusted accordingly.

You have to know the latitude/longitude of the spot?

Yes and the balloon number.

How do I enter the location of a balloon?
The balloon latitude and longitude coordinates are entered in degree-minute-second (DD-MM-SS) format. Coordinate pairs must have a distance error of less than 1.0 miles to be correct. Street addresses and degree decimal formats can be converted to latitude and longitude using Internet conversion tools. (See Wikipedia for a further explanation and references to conversion tools. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geograp...rdinate_system.)

If they told you what states they were in it would kind of kill the whole thing.

Isn't there supposed to be an attendant from DARPA by each balloon? Won't they just tell you the latitude and Longitude? If not I'll have to see if my htc has an app for finding them.
