      FIREBALL ALERT: On Sunday morning, Jan. 15th, between approximately
      1:56 and 1:59 a.m. PST (0956 - 0959 UT), a brilliant fireball will
      streak over northern California and Nevada. It's NASA's Stardust
      capsule, returning to Earth with samples of dust from Comet Wild 2.
      Observers along the flight path should have a marvelous view of this
      rare man-made meteor. Radio signals reflected from the capsule's
      ionized tail may be heard from a much wider area--hundreds to thousands
      of miles away. Visit http://spaceweather.com for maps and observing tips.
