Space Shuttle Endeavour to Fly Over Caifornia Tomorrow

If you're anywhere in Calfornia tomorrow, get ready for the plane spotting, or rather shuttle spotting opportunity of a lifetime! The Space Shuttle Endeavour is scheduled to make its appearance on the back of a 747 over the skies of Sacramento anytime after 8:30a.m. tomorrow morning. After that it's headed to the Bay Area at around 9-9:30, south over the Santa Cruz and Monterey areas, then scheduled to show up in LA area around 10:30 before landing at LAX. For security reasons, details are vague, but for the most up to date information, @Nasa is encouraging people to follow the shuttle and post pics on twitter using the hashtags #spottheshuttle and #OV105.

I'll be headed to the state capitol early tomorrow with the baby to try and get a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse for myself. I'm sure the baby won't remember, but at least we can both say we've "been there, done that", and hopefully snap some good pictures. The shuttle's final resting place will be at the California Science Center in LA, which is right across the street from my Alma Mater, USC. If you're in the LA area, you can also catch the shuttle as it makes its journey along surface streets from LAX to the museum on October 13th.

No word on which runways the shuttle will be using at LAX tomorrow, but if it ends up being north, In-N-Out is definitely the place to be:
