Actually, I believe the Shuttle will cross the California coast a little before 6 Pacific.

As I write this, the Shuttle should be re-entering the atmosphere of the planet "Earth."

It came from just north just like you said. I was out looking already. As soon as I read the time it hits SF and touchdown time I knew I better hurry up.
That is on the list of cooler things I have ever seen.
thanks!

It wasnt a glow that spread back like a comet but it must have been "on fire" because it was bright and big.

Back in 68 or 69 I stepped out of my BOQ room at Ft. Rucker Alabama just in time to see an orange ball cross from west to east over the Gulf of Mexico. A few minutes later the capsule splashed down in the Atlantic. Glad you got to see this one.
