A fireball in the sky

If you live anywhere between Bakersfield in California and Surrey in British Columbia, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the anticipated fireball as the Stardust probe returns to Earth Sunday morning at 1:56:39 a.m. PST.

After the Stardust capsule returns safely to earth, you may want to consider giving NASA scientists a hand to find the stardust it is hopefully carrying onboard! See Stardust@home for the full project details.

UPDATE: NASA's Stardust sample return capsule successfully landed at the U.S. Air Force Utah Test and Training Range at 2:10 a.m. Pacific time (3:10 a.m. Mountain time).
