Space Shuttle Flyover-NYC

Not the best pic but it was still really cool to see the Space Shuttle Enterprise on its flyover this morning. Took this from my office window as it was flying up the Hudson River toward the Intrepid:

Did they do fly overs for the retirement of the shuttles?

I still remember seeing the Enterprise over Montreal in 1983 when they introduced the shuttles. Hard to believe how time flies.

Great picture.

Last winter while I was out shoveling snow one night, the space station passed over followed by the shuttle about 6 minutes later. They were smaller than what you saw, but they were as bright as the moon.
