    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
    For maps of the reentry tracks, see
    It will be worth waking up very early.
    Good luck !
