    The Phoenix Mars Lander is scheduled to touch down on Sunday 5/25/08
    to begin exploring the Arctic Plains of Mars.

    Anyone know if there will be live coverage on the NASA channel or
    elsewhere of this event?

    Yes, NASA TV will begin live coverage on Sunday at 22:30 UTC.

    Coverage elsewhere? You bet! I'll personally be monitoring ALL of the
    web-sites listed below during the weekend:

    http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/phoenix/blogs
    The actual blog being written by the Phoenix team during the landing.

    http://twitter.com/MarsPhoenix
    A Twitter page for regular - brief! - updates from JPL's publicity team...

    http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/i...p?showforum=14
    Arguably the best UMSF-related web forum out there, frequented by all the
    major movers and shakers of planetary missions.

    http://www.dmuller.net/phoenix
    Watch the hours, minutes, and seconds remaining until landing, ticking away in
    excruciating real-time...

    http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv
    This is the ONE site you absolutely MUST be watching during the hours leading
    up to, and after, landing.

    http://planetary.org/blog
    Emily Lakdawalla's always-excellent blog, which will have special Phoenix content
    during Sunday evening / Monday morning

    http://www.ustream.tv/channel/emily-lakdawalla
    Emily will be streaming live video from JPL during the EDL phase.

    http://phoenix.lpl.arizona.edu/
    The official Phoenix mission website

    http://www.marslive.co.uk/
    A special web-site where a team of British astronomers and spaceflight enthusiasts
    - including SKY AT NIGHT co-presenter Chris Lintott and UMSF's Doug Ellison -
    located in Patrick Moore's study in Selsey, will be following the landing as it
    happens, with YouTube videos, blog entries, and comments.

    Lets hope for a very successful landing. Considering how well the
    Rovers worked out, this should be good.

    At the time of the Spirit / Opportunity landings spaceflightnow had an
    almost-real-time coverage from their web site.
