Heatwaves are one of those times when I wish I lived in the Pacific Northwest. Add witnessing spacecraft reentry to that list as well.
The Genesis spacecraft, which went to the sun and collected samples is returning to Earth, will put on a show tomorrow. Any of our readers from Elko, Nevada to Bend, Oregon may be able to catch a glimpse of it starting at 8:53 AM.
Check this map to see if you’re on the path – you should be able to view it if you’re within 100 miles of the path of reentry, it will be between 10-100 times brighter than Venus.
Won’t someone go out tomorrow morning and take some photos of it?
