President Barack Obama's plane landed at Buckley Air Force Base outside Denver Tuesday when the President was in town to sign the sweeping stimulus package into law.

Air Force One touched down at about 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

A motorcade took Obama to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, where he toured a solar panel installation to highlight the boost he hopes the measure will give to renewable energy.

He then signed the $787 billion stimulus bill at the museum.

Vice President Joe Biden and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, a former U.S. senator from Colorado are with the president.

Colorado Republicans held a protest rally at the state Capitol to coincide with the signing.

Obama flew to Phoenix after signing the bill.
