I'm betting, based on the present Zarya track close to scheduled 
landing time of Dec 15, 0408 UT, that the re-entry track will be close to 
that of STS-91, but maybe a little further west. Still re-entry interface 
over the South Pacific, Central America or southern Mexico, and the Gulf 
of Mexico.

Naturally, all bets are off if STS-88 launch is delayed;-)

Note: The Shuttle, Shuttle-Mir and ISS web sites have been 
combined into one site.
Eventually when the new URL gets distributed, it will have
the URL of http://spaceflight.nasa.gov. Until then, the previous
URLs still work.

Sorry Sue, I don't think it's in the cards for you this time:-(
