Shuttle Endevour

Woo-HOO!

The shuttle just now landed at LAX...and...the danged thing went square OVER my house, on it's run
from Long Beach, the harbor and back to LAX.

Simply amazing.

Oh and...was I ready...of course not...didn't even have the phone because the news was SO vague about
the routing.

Still, got to see it!

1. My boss and I just watched it fly right by us

Went up on the roof and watched it pass over the Getty. Very emotional.

2. Me too, up in the Bay Area!

I just put up a thread in Education about it, it flew over the school I teach at!

3. Way cool...

and you got some pics to boot.

That is my disapointment...but just seeing it so close will stay burned in my brain.

I will be out at LAX on Sunday and am hoping to see Endevour, during taxi out on the South runways at the airport...under normal operations, we'll go right past the United hangers (I hope that is where they are going to work on it.)

4. I saw it fly over JPL.

I wanted a picture of it over JPL but there were so many people jostling around that I didn't get the shot I wanted.
