    Thanks to Daniel Deak for saying:
    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
    on the first attempt and will pass over the southern tip of the state on
    For maps of the reentry tracks, see
    I looked at those reentry tracks. It's a little hard to tell the time at
    which I should look for STS-109 reentering?
    Time- and altitude-ticks on the ground tracks would be nice.
    Specifically, time and highest elevation for each landing opportunity
    for So Cal.
    (I'm sure other observers would also like to know!)
    I'd appreciate any guidance!
    Best, Mark
