Does anyone know what time it's supposed to be landing, taking off etc from HOU?

Quoting olddominion727 (Reply 3):

According to the link in my reply 1, it's only doing a low-level flyover of NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett, before flying down to Los Angeles.

Do we have any idea of approximate route of flight to Moffett?

It's taking off from Edwards AFB, flying up to Sacramento for a fly over there then coming in over Hayward, Moffet, up the peninsula, turning over Sausalito, flying past the Gate then down coast side to LAX. The target time for Moffet Field is 9AM but I would be up and ready at any viewing spot by 8:30 I think.

I got this info from an online article yesterday but don't have the link handy.

I wish I still lived in Sunnyvale. At least for tomorrow.

There is a NASA event being held in the morning at Ames Research Center before the flyover. The base will be open to visitors. Details can be found here: http://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/news/releases/2012/M12-66.html

I saw (and heard) it this morning around 7:40 am as it made a low pass over Austin.

Here is a video someone took from the Congress Avenue Bridge (south of the State Capitol) as it flew over downtown.

Here's another video someone shot from just north of the State Capitol.

What an awesome start to my morning.
