    Landing of the Shuttle Atlantis

    At 12:49 pacific time, STS-117 will come to a close when the shuttle Atlantis lands at Edwards Air Force Base.

    I am not sure that you would be able to see much but for whoever lives in that area may want to look in the direction of the base.

    *EDIT*
    Atlantis has touched down at the said time.

    Was that the Sonic BOOM that I just heard...here in Rancho Cucamonga CA. Thought it was an earthquake but news said it landed in Lancaster.

    Must have been!

    I figured it out (eventually) after I got up and was on the run to see if my so was OK as I did not know what it was at first. I forgot about the shuttle landing today.

    Then after thinking I remembered the double boom of the shuttle.

    Yeah Edwards Air Force Base is out near Lancaster.



    But I think they re entered the atmostphere probably somewhere over the desert near Palm Springs or maybe even more east of there?

    We felt and heard it. One of the office blowhards came around and "apologized" for dropping his johnson on the floor. Eyes rolled.
