    Hello everyone,
    
    Weather permitting, southern US observers will have a nice chance to watch the
    trail produced by the Shuttle reentry tonight. First landing opportunity is at
    03:32 CST (09:32 UTC) with deorbit burn at 02:22 and second opportunity is for
    landing at 05:13 CST with the burn at 04:05. Columbia will cross Central Texas
    on the first attempt and will pass over the southern tip of the state on the
    second.
    
    For maps of the reentry tracks, see
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/groundtracs/
    
    It will be worth waking up very early.
    
    Good luck !
    
    Dan
