    It's the shuttle, right?

    It flew over Disneyland at lunchtime. The path it took was right near where I was working. I watched it too.

    After Disneyland it flew down to San Pedro and orbited the USS Iowa, then flew up basically the Harbor Fwy to land at LAX. I live right off the Harbor Fwy.
