Mark Ireland and Cassie Phelps launched the balloon from the Forest of Dean and watched it disappear into the sky, Metro.co.uk reported.
The makeshift Santa and Rudolph reached 100,000ft above the earth’s surface, as the camera attached captured incredible views of the space.
The helium filled balloon, which had cost around 50 pounds, popped and landed 70 miles away from its launch position in Yeovil in Somerset.
