Stardust return

Stardust will return comet dust samples to Earth Saturday night. I was amused by this statement in an Associated Press article:

Residents in parts of Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada and Utah should see the Stardust capsule as it streaks across the pre-dawn sky. Prime viewing will be along Nevada's Interstate 80 where residents can view the capsule's front.

My first thought was "Residents? Along I-80?"

Tongue-in-cheek, of course.
