    Be sure to pay attention to EST vs. CST, also there are two or three
    sets of maps and times in case it is waived off for one orbit or has to
    land at Edwards in California. There is a weather problem with both
    sites now and a chance it could even come down at the strip in New
    Mexico that they have not used since 1982. I hope that happens because
    that track would be right over me. You just have to keep checking the
    NASA page for updates.
    Remember that last mission the NASA web site had live coverage of the
    reentry and landing that was actually running delayed 40 minutes behind
    real time and many people missed the reentry. Sometimes CNN has a better
    handle on the Shuttle position than NASA does.
