When Google's army of Street View vehicles takes to the streets, there's no telling what those wandering eyes will see. Still it's hard to believe that a Google Street View camera captured a space shuttle flying over the New Jersey Turnpike towards New York City.

We've seen our share of spectacular flyover images, but nothing quite matches this gem captured by chance. Given the April 2012 timestamp, we know that's Enterprise en route to her NYC resting place.
