Let's See Those Endeavour Flyover Photos

Perched atop NASA’s 747 Shuttle Carrier aircraft, the Space Shuttle Endeavour made its farewell tour over Northern California Friday morning. Did you snap any photos? Post them here!

Did you head out Friday morning to witness history?

The Space Shuttle Endeavour made its once-in-a-lifetime farewell tour over Northern California, making low-level flyovers at about 1,500 feet above locations along a planned flight path that included the Bay Area, from Sacramento to San Francisco and even NASA Ames Research Center near Mountain View.

Commuters in southern Marin got a great view of the shuttle as it flew over Highway 101 south toward San Francisco around 10:30 a.m. Wolfback Ridge in Sausalito was jam packed with gawkers trying to get the best view of the shuttle.

"I don't know if it's worth the cost for something that's just a spectacular show, but it was spectacular," said one commuter who was surprised to see the low-level flyover as he was filling up at a gas station.

We were walking on the Tiburon bike path and were surprised when it came over the Tiburon Hills much closer than we imagined it would be --if we had had a camera our picture would have been similar to the one taken by Dan above.

Saw it in Sacramento. Was driving and didn't have a camera with me, but it was flying quite low and there was a big crowd on the overpass nearby.

I didn't have a chance to break away from work. However, I watched the news coverage. That's really cool.

The weather was great for shuttle flight. It couldn't have been better.
