Tracking the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover Tonight!

I'll be attempting to track the rover tonight starting around 2:00 am eastern, 6:00 UT. If I can get enough data on it I should be able to independently verify the rover's trajectory to Mars.

Ok when that thing lands, what it if finds signs of Life on Mars.

I'm mean I always knew my wife was from Mars but this thing could prove it.

I can. It makes some people nervous when I do that though. They think terrorists are going to steal my code and use it to do bad things to planes.
