    Thanks - I have an article in my car to remind me, but it was previously stated as Thursday the 20th.
    It looks like they delayed everything by a day now.

    Twitter says the shuttle just passed over sacramento and is now heading to the bay area

    Nice VFX. I like.

    Slightly off topic, but a picture of Endeavour (in the back and Atlantis in the front).

    I have seen two shuttles on the two launch pads twice. It has only happened 18 times.

    This was the last time it ever happened.

    And this is not my picture. It is NASA's picture.

    vfx - How about "to carry as much luggage as the Model S, even a 747 has to include a roof rack."

    Thanks for sharing the photos and vids.

    Kinda depressing though. I'll leave it at that because it quickly leads to sociopolitical anger if I think about it too much.

    The Merc has a good collection of Bay Area photos here: Space Shuttle Endeavours final flight

    Had I gone to SF, this is the vantage point I would have chosen.

    Glad I didn't actually go to Nasa Ames. Seems the flight was almost directly over head. Hard to see much of the actual Shuttle from that angle.

    Great picture. I wish the shadow was in frame, or at least part of it.
