NASA Captures Shuttle's Capitol Hill Flyby With Instagram

On its final flight, the 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft that bore Space Shuttle Discovery took the liberty of buzzing Capitol Hill. NASA was there to preserve the moment — then apply a filter and post it on the internets.

The retired shuttle was being flown into Dulles International before travelling to its final resting place at the Smithsonian Institution, where it will be put on permanent display.
