It will be at 16:38 hours (local time) that the aircraft will be seen at its peak as it passes over northern Baja California Sur, on its way to the desert in the western United States, where it is scheduled to land.

According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Boeing Starliner spacecraft that will return to Earth this Wednesday, May 25, will be visible on its re-entry into the atmosphere for those living in Loreto, Comondú and Mulegé.

The spacecraft lifted off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida on May 19, successfully docking with the International Space Station (ISS) less than 24 hours later, carrying more than 200 kilos of food and supplies for the members of the station.

It will return with more than 270 kilos of cargo including reusable oxygen and nitrogen tanks, which provide breathable air to the astronauts, and once on Earth will be refurbished and sent back on a future flight.

The CST-100 Starliner carried no human crew, but a passenger, named Rosie The Rocketeer, is a test device with sensors to test the effects of launch and space flight on a human model, as it is said that it would become a sort of “cab” into space.
