On this day in 1783, Pilâtre de Rozier and the Marquis d'Arlandes made the first free ascent in a balloon. They flew from the center of Paris for about five and a half miles. Benjamin Franklin was in Paris for the event. Reporting on what he saw, he wrote, "We observed it lift off in the most majestic manner. When it reached around 250 feet in altitude, the intrepid voyagers lowered their hats to salute the spectators. We could not help feeling a certain mixture of awe and admiration."
