The NYC skies will have an unfamiliar visitor today as the Space Shuttle Enterprise makes its way to JFK and then to permanent display The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Today's flyover -- from the Statue of Liberty up to the Tapan Zee Bridge -- is expected between 10am and 11:30am this morning. WNYC's Richard Hake checks in from Liberty Island to talk about the morning's events.

Too bad all the NYC school kids are taking the state math test today (the 3rd ridiculous day) They won't be able to see this once-in-a-lifetime sight, which seems tailor-made for kids.

I'm in NJ on Boulevard East. I'm hoping to see the shuttle out my window. We've got a great view, but a spaceship will be a one-day-only show for sure! It also makes me a bit sad that there's so much excitement about this while the space program is in such a decline.
