The Space Shuttle Endeavour is schedule to make its trip over Los Angeles today and you won’t want to miss it.
According to a NASA news release, the shuttle should take off about 8:15 a.m. from Edwards Air Force Base. The Endeavour, which is strapped to a 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA), will first head to Northern California where it will fly over the California State Capitol, The Bay Area Discovery Museum, and the Monterrey Bay Aquarium.
It then heads to Los Angeles. Anytime after 11:30 a.m. the shuttle will be seen at spots all over LA including the “California Science Center, Columbia Memorial Space Center in Downey, Disneyland, The Getty Center, Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles City Hall, the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, Malibu Beach, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, the Queen Mary, Universal Studios and Venice Beach.”
But if you’re anywhere near those places and it’s clear, you should be able to spot Endeavour. And if you’re on Social Media you have an even better chance of seeing the fly by. Join in on Twitter at the hashtags #spottheshuttle and #OV105 to find out where Endeavour is now or to tell people what you’ve seen.
The shuttle is scheduled to arrive at Los Angeles International Airport at 12:45 p.m. But like any flight, it’s dependent on the weather.
