    Not likely, and I am suddenly reminded that I should qualify that location with a Durham,NH so as to keep you research triangle folks from getting confused

    30% chance of Aurora by the end of the week according to spaceweather.com

    In the meantime the space shuttle launch will be visible for most of the east coast tonight: http://www.space.com/spacewatch/0903...-spotting.html

    Lets hope the launch goes off. Those poor guys have been waiting for the "pisstiller" (it changes the urine into drinking water) to be fixed for a few thousand orbits now! The new part is on this mission.

    Last word I got is they are shooting for Sunday for the shuttle launch. If not then the next launch window is in a month. I wouls like to see it this Sunday as I am in South FL right now and would get a pretty good sight.

    Does anybody know if they are launching in the same direction as last week?

    It would appear so.

    But no official verification on the claim.

    From that article it sounds like all launches to rendezvous with the ISS take it up the east coast.

    Yeah, it seems strange. I tried to find something to corroborate that but I was unable to find it.
