The Space Shuttle Endeavour flew over my street Friday afternoon on its way to the Los Angeles airport.
The shuttle did a farewell tour of California and cruised around the skies over Los Angeles, sometimes as low as 300 yards off the ground, giving us all a great view.
Our local TV news covered it live, so we had a good warning when it would be over our neighborhood... the skies were cleared of all other air traffic and at about 12:30, me and some neighbors were out in the street looking up into the sky and suddenly Endeavour appeared, getting a piggy-back ride.
Some friends were on the 405 Freeway at the time, which is next to LAX, and traffic stopped (not an uncommon event) and watched the landing.
It was quite something to see and experience. A nice moment with the neighbors as well.
Los Angeles does have its moments.
