Gabrielle Giffords has landed in Houston, to much media coverage. Tilman Fertitta provided the jet.

Earlier today her office released a picture of Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly taken yesterday.

"The two are on an outdoor deck at University Medical Center in Tucson looking north at the Catalina Mountains," spokesman Mark Kimble says.

Kelly tweeted this earlier today: "GG going to next phase of her recover today. Very grateful to the docs and nurses at UMC, Tucson PD, Sheriffs Dept....Back in Tucson ASAP!"

A Facebook group has called for a candlelight vigil outside Giffords's Medical Center facility tonight at 7:30.
