Paradise Canyon Elementary school in La Cañada Flintridge was out in force to catch a glimpse of the space shuttle Endeavour as it made a loop over JPL, just down the road from us. The kids were so excited, running all over the playground, following its path.

After multiple delays, a questionable spelling, and officials reminding people not to space-out while driving, the retiring Space Shuttle Endeavour has made it to California.

Above and below are collections of photos you sent to KPCC and to the internet at large from rooftop and hillsides across the state. Possibly a balcony or two. And a beach.

Here are a few pro-tips on how to photograph the space shuttle and the 7 places to watch Endeavour fly over Los Angeles. The shuttle is doing a state flyover tour then hanging out at a hanger near LAX where it will prepare for a slow rolling, final frontier road trip across L.A. to its new home at the California Science Center. 

UPDATE (12:55 p.m.): Shuttle has landed! We will continue to update the galleries with new photos!
