    Tag your photos on social media with #ShuttleWatch and we'll help show them off. NBC4's Mekahlo Medina reports for the NBC4 News on Oct. 9, 2012. (Published Wednesday, Oct 10, 2012)

    The Space Shuttle Endeavour will begin its final journey through the streets of LA on Friday, and we want to see your photos of this historic event.

    To join in the fun, just tag your pics #ShuttleWatch. It's that easy.

    We'll take the best shots and add them to our gallery. Some of our favorites will also be displayed on our Facebook page's cover photo, and we'll be retweeting great images all day.

    Pictures can range from actual shots of Endeavour to viewing parties to space-shuttle costumes (someone will be wearing a space-shuttle costume, right?).

    We'll be scouring Instagram and Twitter for photos with the tag #ShuttleWatch. You can also post pics on our Facebook wall, or you can email us at isee@nbcla.com.

    Be sure to tune in to NBC4 and visit nbcla.com for complete shuttle coverage. Here is the schedule for Endeavour's journey:
