Three Balloons, One Crossbow.

Three balloons, one crossbow. A bit of fun for this evening. This is a high velocity crossbow bolt piercing three balloons. The crossbow bolt was traveling at 400 feet per second (just over 1/3 of the speed of sound) when this shot was taken. Each of the balloons had a teaspoon of water added, to help pick out their original shapes.
