I remember that morning following the live thread here on FR. FReepers across the world tracked it coming in and realized that the shuttle had broken up somewhere between Hawaii and the Mainland (IIRC). LIke so many things, you’ll hear it here first.
I remember sitting and watching that thread all night reports of debris from Freepers in its path..NASA was saying nothing could have gone wrong that far out..sadly they were wrong
Me too. According to the first reports, it apparently started to break up just above my home on the California/Nevada border.

Yes, I recall seeing the weatherman confused by what appeared on the doppler scope that day.
NASA was still not saying anything, but between the "overdue for landing" news and this image, I knew what had happened - and what had passed by overhead.
