On June 4, 1783 the Montgolfier brought out the first public display of the finding in his hometown. The balloon, unmanned, was a ball sack, made of linen and lined paper, about 11 meters in diameter and weighing about 226 kilograms and rose about 1830 feet high. The Montgolfier were invited to make a demonstration before the court of Louis XVI at Versailles on 19 September in which he tied a balloon to the basket in which was a lamb, a turkey and a goose, the first passenger air, which did not suffer any damage. These inflated by hot air balloon, which cooled down, began to have the name "Montgolfiere" or "Mongolfiera.
