(WDAY TV) -- Space shuttle Endeavour has returned to its California roots.
Endeavour made a cross-country journey including a loop over Tucson, Arizona and former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her astronaut husband, Mark Kelly.
Kelly was Endeavour's last commander.
The 747 jet carrying Endeavour then headed to Edwards Air Force Base. The shuttle and jumbo jet take off again at sunrise to make low, sweeping passes over Sacramento, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and L-A before it becomes a museum showpiece.
