ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- It was another magical sunrise over New Mexico Tuesday as hundreds of hot air balloons launched at Balloon Fiesta.


The wind was light, and the Fiesta field was draped with bright colors waiting to be inflated for liftoff. Fiesta officials said more than 400 took park in of Tuesday's mass ascension.

Pilots from 23 countries are here for the 46th annual event. A survey of pilots found that camaraderie was the number-one reason they keep coming back. Judging from the smiles and the waves for Chopper 4, Tuesday had the kind of morning that makes for beautiful memories in the skies over New Mexico.
