PAGE, AZ — Illusionist David Blaine is taking to Arizona's skies on Wednesday to perform his latest stunt.

According to his website, Blaine will be performing his "Ascension" stunt by floating with a bunch of large balloons, inspired by a childhood memory.

It was supposed to take place over New York City, but Blaine recently posted that it will instead take place in Arizona.

Blaine posted from Page, Arizona, last weekend that he hoped to launch Wednesday, depending on weather and wind.

He reportedly had to complete several different training elements before the stunt, which is touted to be his "biggest live performance yet."

A scheduled YouTube Live video of the illusion began at 5:55 a.m. local time on Wednesday.
