The space shuttle Endeavour flew over Sacramento at about 9:45 a.m. Friday piggybacked on a modified Boeng 747 on its last flight before becoming a museum piece.
Here are some photos of the shuttle as it flew over Sacramento. Other nearby places it was spotted include Stockton and Fresno.
It took off from LAX Airport in Los Angeles, and after Sacramento, reports said it was headed to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
Sacramentans came out in droves to see the historic event, with the rooftops of parking garages, office buildings and residences crowded with people. Here are a few photos and videos shared with us by locals who saw the shuttle on its last mission:
