HOUSTON – While thousands of us “commoners” were on the ground snapping the best photos we could of Space Shuttle Endeavour flying around Houston, NASA saved the best shots for its YouTube channel.

With its unrestricted access, a nearby NASA T-38 jet captured video of the shuttle from the air. In a five-minute clip uploaded Thursday, NASA showed the shuttle passing over the Galleria, the Astrodome, downtown, and other landmarks.

Endeavour, bolted to the back of a special 747, flew around Houston’s skies for about 90 minutes on Wednesday before landing for an overnight stay at Ellington Airport.
