People in Reno are hoping the weather cooperates...for a once-in-a-lifetime cosmic show.
NASA's stardust capsule will return to earth...three minutes before two Sunday morning.
It's fiery glow will blast through the sky...and be most visible in Northern Nevada.
Grab your binoculars or video camera...because it can only be seen for about ninety seconds.
Scientists say it's returning from a very important seven-year mission...bringing back comet dust for NASA research.
NASA tried once before to bring back the "Genesis" capsule...but the parachute failed, and it crashed in Utah.
