This is amazing!

IMAGES OF SHUTTLE LAUNCH SHOT ON PLANE GO VIRAL: A 12-second snippet of footage and three still photos of the space shuttle Endeavour's launch Monday (May 17th) that were shot from a nearby plane have gone viral online and on Twitter, and have also landed on newscasts and in newspapers around the world. The images were shot by 33-year-old Stefanie Gordon using her iPhone as her New York to West Palm Beach Delta flight was descending toward its landing Monday morning. It was an overcast day in Florida, and the footage and photos show the shuttle in the distance soaring up into the sky with a plume of white smoke behind it going back into a bank of clouds. Gordon uploaded the images to Twitter soon after shooting them, and they quickly took off from there.
