	From my location about half of the trail was filtering through
some thin clouds.  So it had an eerie yellowish glow to it as well some
slowly varying brightness changes.  This was the brightest reentry I've
seen.  And the colors were roughly switched from a similar reentry I saw
last year: this time the shuttle was orange and the trail yellow, the
other time the shuttle was yellow and the trail orange-yellow.
