Palos Verdes Patch is counting down its 10 biggest local stories from 2012. No. 1: The Space Shuttle Endeavour comes home to Southern California.

It's been a crazy year. Palos Verdes Patch writers were busy writing about vandalism at the local high school, a missing diver and panga landings, among other topics. Here is the No. 1 story of the year, chosen by popularity and editorial discretion.

The final journey of Space Shuttle Endeavour brought it to the West Coast and the Los Angeles area. Thousands watched as the Boeing 747 carrying the shuttle flew over Long Beach, the Palos Verdes Peninsula, the South Bay, Hollywood, downtown Los Angeles and more.

Patch readers from across the area sent in their photos of the shuttle.

After landing and spending some time at LAX, the shuttle embarked on its journey through Los Angeles to the new California Science Center, where it was put on display.
