The space shuttle Endeavor put on quite a show for people who looked skyward in the East Bay on Friday morning.
The shuttle flew over Walnut Creek at 10:05 a.m. at 1,500 feet. It was escorted and it was clearly visible. It then headed toward Oakland and the Golden Gate Bridge and the Ames Research Center in Mountain View.
The retired spacecraft rode on the back of a modified 747 aircraft, escorted by a military jet.
The shuttle came in from the northeast after soaring over Sacramento at about 9:30 a.m.
It will land in Los Angeles and then be driven to its retirement home at the California Science Center.
Ames hosted a shuttle watch party at its site. In addition, Ames hopes to webcast the program and flyover on its UStream channel from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.
