Space shuttle Discovery will be joining the Smithsonian family next week. The shuttle will be flying in from Florida on the back of a Boeing 747, and as it makes its flyover near Washington's landmarks, it should be easily seen from the National Mall.
The Smithsonian is also recommending several other places to get a good view, including Hains Point and the Southwest Waterfront. In Virginia, it should be visible from the waterfront in Old Town Alexandria, Gravelly Point near Reagan National Airport and Long Bridge Park.
A good place to see Discovery in Maryland is at the National Harbor.
Discovery is expected to arrive sometime between 10 and 11 a.m. Tuesday morning, and once it lands, it will be housed at the National Air and Space Museum's annex in northern Virginia near Dulles Airport.
