SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco Bay area residents are slated to be among the last Americans who will get a chance to see the space shuttle Endeavor before it retires in a Los Angeles museum.

The shuttle is expected to fly near the State Capitol building in Sacramento just after 8:30 a.m. on Friday before passing over the Bay Area about an hour later. However, the times may change depending on weather.

The California Highway Patrol says prime places to watch the fly-over include the Exploratorium in San Francisco, Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley and Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The Endeavor logged more than 123 million miles in its 25 trips over two decades.

The California Science Center in Los Angeles, the shuttle's new home, agreed to pay $28 million for the farewell tour.
