I'm going to try the firing PARs into a weather balloon to create a moonlight effect. Does anyone know where I can track down said weather balloon as well as the necessary helium? I'm in the LA area but any general advice would also be appreciated.

An internet search will reveal all you nee. The balloon will be cheap the hellium expense.
