Time lapse video of Endeavour being maneuvered through LA

They moved the Space Shuttle Endeavour from the Los Angeles International Airport last weekend. A distance of about 20kms. It took 3 days in total and there was clearance of only millimetres in some cases. They had to raise and lower it as they went.

Here is a time lapse video of 3 days condensed down to 3 minutes. It’s amazing.

This link will take you to readers photos of the shuttle’s last journey.

In one of them, two young men were playing basketball in the back yard of their house while the Endeavour passed their house out the front. They wouldn’t have been able to see it although it was going so slowly they probably didn’t miss it.

If you look closely, there’s someone hiding on the roof above the basketballers as well. It needs a caption. Got any suggestions?
