Awesome I envy you being in an area where you catch the shuttle.

Thanks. I feel really lucky to have had that first and last opportunity. :)

WOW!  I was able to see it up here in the Bay Area where it passed over the Golden Gate Bridge twice.  Sadly, no great shots for me... Yours were phenomenal, well done!

Discovery launch, July 4, 2006, seen from overhead MCO at about 35,000 ft.
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

Thanks. Great to see a good photographer got some great shots! Preserve this stuff.

I was able to capture a couple of pictures at the Golden Gate Bridge. The experience was wonderful.

Great photos, I wonder what kind of pics the photographer at the very top of Golden Gate bridge got. He's standing next to the microwave antenna

I was lucky to be home when the Endeavour flew over Hollywood about 3 times. I quickly set up my IDX using EOS iTR AF utilizing the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L, unfortunately, I forgot to set for raw - was only in jpeg mode. Here are a few pics. I've downsized them because I don't know the file size limitation.

I really wanted to photograph this event as it was happening all around me.  Was inundated with work support calls tying me up all day.  However, I wanted to catch the shuttle as it went from LAX to exposition park science center.  Found it very hard to get the info on this journey but finally located the date and map of course.

Will happen on Friday, October 12th, 2012.

Select "Leaving LAX" on dropdown to get map.

Now, with this map, does anyone have some best spots to photograph the large bird driving down the street at 2MPH?  First thought was Randy's Donuts on Manchester Ave and the 405 freeway.  Would love to know other's thoughts.
