Nort,
Cool post!

It's amazing to think that they initially re-enter @ approx. 17,000 mph too! When I was working the shuttle program back in the early 90's, some of the shuttle astronauts were @ Edwards AFB for training and they ran into some of the SR-71 pilots. The SR-71 pilots had patches on their flight suits that said "MACH 3+". Well the shuttle astronauts got together had some patches made for their flight suits that said "MACH 17+"!!
The shuttle astronauts are some of the most fearless and dedicated people you will ever meet.
Go USA!

I'm in awe of the whole space program. I saw a simulation of how fast the shuttle/ISS combo would be like a few hundred feet above ground...unbelievably fast....talk about the ride of your life

Use that link I put up there......it's different for every location. It give you a time, a compass heading.....and the degree from the horizon that it will appear and disappear

One thing to remember.....the site provides "visible" times.....I was surprised last night. I was watching it go across, the wham....it was gone. Actually...I just couldn't see it anymore as the sunshine (or moonshine) wasn't hitting it anymore so that is why they give a degree from the horizon that it will appear and disapear, plus the compass heading.
