Stellar Wednesday

A lot of space stuff is happening Wednesday, February 20, 2008.

"Atlantis aims for Wednesday landing"
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - After nearly two weeks in orbit, Atlantis and its crew aimed for a Wednesday landing on either coast to clear the way for the military to shoot down a dying spy satellite.

"US may shoot down satellite Wednesday"
WASHINGTON - An attempt to blast a crippled U.S. spy satellite out of the sky using a Navy heat-seeking missile — possibly on Wednesday night — would be the first real-world use of this piece of the Pentagon's missile defense network.

"Lunar eclipse to occur Wednesday night"
LOS ANGELES - The last total lunar eclipse until 2010 occurs Wednesday night, with cameo appearances by Saturn and the bright star Regulus on either side of the veiled full moon.

Enough to keep a lot of people busy.
