Where do the US Supreme Court justices sit during the President's State of the Union address?

When the President addresses a joint session of Congress, as he does in a State of the Union address, the event is held in the House of Representatives. The US Supreme Court justices sit in the front row, center section, directly in front of the President.
During President Obama's first State of the Union address (January 28, 2010), they probably wished they'd been sitting farther away.
