    These images and videos from Stefanie Gordon have gone viral and featured on Newspaper front pages. Among other places, you can see info on the Palm Beach Post News website.
    Here is one of the fantastic images of Endeavor breaking through the cloud cover. The photo was shot with an iPhone:

    Have any of you ever seen a space shuttle launch? How about from 30K feet?

    Awesome. I'm surprised we didn't see more from other passengers. :)

    I saw the shuttle that John Glenn went up in from an airplane, parked on the tarmac in Orlando. The gate agents had to herd everyone on board because we were all looking out the window in the terminal. Once we got on, I had an aisle seat and the window seat person didn't have much interest (?), and agreed to switch. It was awesome even as far away as we were. Seeing it at 30,000 feet must have been awesome.

    Returning from an Orlando visit, saw a shuttle launch while on a DL flight. Wasn't as good as that pic, but pretty amazing nonetheless.
