After months of preparations–tree cutting, power line lifting, street sign removing–the day is finally upon us. The space shuttle Endeavour left LAX on its final mission to Exposition Park late last night. And it's traveled a few dozen feet so far.

There will be rolling street closures to accomodate the shuttle throughout today and tomorrow, but spectators who can navigate the labyrinthine maze will have the chance to view the shuttle at three designated times and locations.
