The hot air balloon has been carrying humans high into the sky since the first manned flight back in 1783. It’s a whimsical means of transportation that captures the imagination of pilots every year at the Festival Internacional del Globo in León, Guanajuato, Mexico. The images above come from the 2012 event, which featured a collection of over 200 balloons.

The Darth Vader hot air balloon certainly takes the cake in my opinion. I’d really love to see a semi-transparent version lit up a night… It would be quite the sight!
