If your children are fans of the Disney Pixar movie UP, bring them over to the computer and get ready to pick up the socks which are about to be knocked off.

Look Ma, no Photoshop! You're looking at the largest balloon cluster flight - 300 weather balloons lifted this 16'x16' house into the air for an hour long flight. The feat was party of a new series for the National Geographic Channel called How Hard Can It Be?. Hard or not, it's pretty impressive by any standard!

You can see a ton more photos of the event at My Modern Met.
