Any suggestions of a nice tall public place to try to catch a glimpse of this historic fly-over? I can't leave town, but would really love to try to see the shuttle do her last airbourne pass over California!

Hi Jane, I'm afraid that 1500 feet isn't high enough to be able to see it if it doesn't fly directly over the Far East Bay here. I think that on top of the 680 Sunol grade because it is likely to buzz by NASA Ames Moffit Field in around Sunnyvale. Ohlone College ought to have a pretty good view...Cal State East Bay ought to have a great view, too.
