    Hello
    I haven't seen any reports of observations of the Shuttle reentry. I was
    wondering if anyone saw it in daylight and what the furthest observation
    from the landing was, in other words Nebraska? Wyoming? Georgia? It was
    cloudy when they passed over us in Seattle.
    Also, why did they reenter on a descending pass after so many years of
    ascending passes? They mentioned daylight landing but they have done night
    landings before I think. Their work/sleep cycle seemed different this
    mission, I wonder if it had anything to do with that, or the work/sleep
    cycle of the employees in Florida?
