    Thanks to Bill for the "heads up" and to Dan for the info on Skywatch! 
    Unfortunately, it was a cloudy and rainy day in Sarasota, washing out my
    first opportunity to see a shuttle re-entry - I bet it would have been
    an awesome sight, happening right around sunset.
    
    I did, however, get to hear the twin sonic booms which rattled the
    windows, so that sort of made up for it!
