Best viewing areas to see the space shuttle Discovery
NASA released a list of locations the plane was scheduled to fly near or over, including much of the Potomac River bordering the District, Ronald Reagan National Airport, National Harbor, the U.S. Capitol, the Mall, Andrews Air Force Base, and much of the Capital Beltway on the Maryland side. Views from atop downtown buildings should be spectacular.
