Meridian, Miss. Many of our viewers noticed a huge blimp flying over Meridian and surrounding areas in the last couple of days.

Viewer Chris Dean sent us a video via Instagram of the Cloud Lab blimp. It's billed as the world's largest airship.
Others posted photos to WTOK's Photo Album.

The ship is on an expedition across the country, funded by the British Broadcasting Company.

Its purpose is to try to find microscopic life in the clouds.

The blimp stayed at Meridian Regional Airport Sunday night before flying out Monday morning.
