Space shuttle Discovery is scheduled to land at 8:53 p.m. at the shuttle's backup landing site at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Both landing opportunities at the shuttle's home port at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida were waved off due to weather.

Landing coverage is scheduled to begin at 3:45 p.m. The landing blog is brought to you by STS-128 Blogger Anna Heiney and originates from the NASA News Center at Kennedy.

I heard that just a little while ago - actually, I almost felt it...Orange County.




Tripped me out big time, and I'm sober - I can only imagine if I was 4 or 5 deep...thanks for the 411.

Space shuttle past over LA at about 0548 PT and landed at Edwards AFB

I wondered how long it would be till it hit ATS

They are unloading at Edwards now.

Wow, I never knew that when the shuttle passed over areas it that it created a shockwave that big. It has to push alot of air out the way to be felt on the groun.

I would just like to comment on this that thanks to all of you who came up with the answer so blindingly fast about this being the space shuttle. That just avoided a potential panic attack. Excellent. Does ATS rock or what???
Real nice guys!

Well, I have watched at the space shuttle in a dramatic fly over texas and there was no shock wave. It was brilliant and beautiful as it flew toward a landing, in Florida, I presume.

Yeah, its definitely the space shuttle. i live about 15 minutes from Cape Canaveral, and the last time one landed I thought someone had set off a bomb in my back yard...I had no idea that it was landing, and I almost crapped myself.

Space shuttle rattles SoCal with sonic booms
The Associated Press

Updated: 09/11/2009 05:50:17 PM PDT


LOS ANGELES—Sonic booms have rocked Southern California as space shuttle Discovery descends toward Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert.
The shuttle's distinctive twin booms sounded late Friday afternoon as Discovery crossed the Pacific coast and soared across the metropolitan area toward a 5:53 p.m. touchdown.

Mission Control diverted the shuttle to California because of bad weather at the primary landing site in Florida.
