    The Shuttle is schedule to undock from the ISS at 5:09PM ET Tuesday.
    
    According to the latest keps, the Shuttle/ISS are schedule to fly over 
    the US east of the Mississippi from about 5:55 to 6:05 Eastern Time, 
    less than an hour after undocking.
    
    It will come from Texas and pass almost directly over the cities of 
    Memphis, Nashville, Louisville KY, and Cincinnati, and then off to the 
    northeast towards New England.
    
    The solar terminator at that time will be west of New Orleans, 
    stretching towards Montana.
    
    Tomorrow might be a great chance to see the two spacecraft just a few 
    feet apart.
    
    Does anyone else want to confirm this?
