Google Street View Car Captures Space Shuttle Flyover

August 29, 2013


This is a shot from a Google Street View car (links to actual Google map) traveling the New Jersey Turnpike that happened to capture a space shuttle flyover in April 2012. Seeing it sent me on a Google Street View treasure hunt to see what other oddities I could spot in the sky. So far just a ton of power lines. Thought I saw a bird, but when I showed it to my roommate he said it was just a fleck of dust on the lens. Then he made fun of the Facebook chat conversation I was having with my grandma. So I was pretending to be my own girlfriend, big deal. That shit makes her happy.

Hit the jump for an even zoomier shot.


Thanks to Bax, who would have lassoed that shuttle and ridden it to the moon. Yeah, I'm not sure that's even possible but you're welcome to try.

    Nice! There is actually another plane there too.

    Saw that.. Wondered if it was an escort of types (??). It certainly looks like a military jet to me.

    From its silhouette, it's an F-5 Tiger II fighter jet.

    How high?
    So high, I could kiss the sky....
