Endeavour passing over West Sacramento

How exciting it was in Sacramento this morning as everyone eagerly waited to catch a glimpse of the space shuttle Endeavour as she ( photo) passed over our State Capitol Building. The above shot is from my front yard as she set off on her return journey to Southern California to be permanently displayed in a museum. Endeavour flew 25 times, mostly to supply the International Space Station. It spent 299 days in space and circled Earth nearly 4,700 times, logging 123 million miles.
