Space Shuttle Discovery Makes People Look Up

In a moment seemingly made for Instagram, the space shuttle Discovery—NASA's oldest and most used shuttle—made loops around D.C. for an hour this morning while strapped to the back of a jet, before landing at Dulles. The shuttle will be making its new home at the Air and Space Museum's Udvar Hazy Center. Twitter users tagged their images with #spottheshuttle.
