It’s a space nerd holiday in New York this morning as the Space Shuttle Enterprise flies to its new home at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum.

Space Shuttle Enterprise is tentatively scheduled to fly to New York on Friday, April 27, between 10:30am and 11:30am, riding piggyback on a Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft.

The flight path offers millions of New Yorkers the chance to capture spectacular images of the shuttle flying at an altitude of just 1000-3000 ft over the Hudson River and past New York City landmarks.

Check back throughout the morning as Twitchy collects the best images and videos tweeted by shuttle spotters.
