You may have heard about the latest big thing to come to Los Angeles...actually a return home of sorts. The NASA Space Shuttle program was based here in California, and with the program's retirement, the 4 remaining Space Shuttles have now found homes at museums around the country. In September, the last of the space shuttles, the Endeavor, flew into Los Angeles piggy-backed on a Boeing 747...what a sight! I'm glad I got to see it fly into the airport, however I regret I missed the real "urban sketching moment"...when last month the Endeavor was transported in a 12-mile, slow-moving parade through neighborhoods of Los Angeles, from the airport to its new home at the California Science Center in Exposition Park, where I finally caught up to it last week to draw it! Thousands lined the streets to watch this momentous event (which involved moving street lights and trees) here are some great photos...http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2012/10/a-space-shuttle-on-the-streets-of-los-angeles/100386/
