Shuttle return ground tracks....



  
As I suspected because of this missions inclination, the first landing 
opportunity
ground track would give us folks even in the Carolinas a good chance at seeing
and hearing this event.  Official NASA ground track plotting charts for the 
various
landing opportunities today are available at 
http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/
groundtracs/index.html  But...it looks as though weather may be a factor not 
only
for Endeavor and determining which groundtrack they will produce but also for
the viewing of their arrival from these eastern most states that are now 
seeing
the encroachment of cloudcover from the west obscuring any possible view
of their flight path across the sky.  However, a mild sonic boom may still be 
heard
roughly five minutes after the spacecraft's passage of your QTH.
