had a very memorable morning at Merritt College in the Oakland Hills...
was over there to see the space shuttle Endeavor as it performed the slow fly-over of San Francisco Bay and some local landmarks.
We had a close pass as it headed north along the East Bay - that's where the photos came from.
Then we waited patiently as eagle-eye Crystal spotted it returning to the left of the Sutro Towers.
it then flew along the San Francisco waterfront and passed through the Golden Gate Bridge.
Enjoyed the once-in-a-lifetime event with some of the students and teachers at Merritt - I think they just liked my binoculars! :-) It was awesome to view!
Here are my photos. Please credit me if you share them... (click on them for the large version to view)
