No frills, no frou-frou as Endeavour soars over California [video]

After taking off from the Mojave Desert, the shuttle got an impressive tour of the sights before making its triumphant journey through the streets of L.A.:

Views included Malibu, Dodger Stadium, California Science Center, the Los Angeles Colosseum, downtown Los Angeles, the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, Pasadena, the Rose Bowl, Santa Monica, Long Beach, Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Space X, Universal Studios, Point Mugu before landing at Los Angeles International Airport at 12:51 pm PT.
