Great amateur photo of space shuttle launch

In a case of being at the right place at the right time, and with WiFi access, Hoboken resident @Stefmara snapped, twitpic’d, and tweeted this awe-some photo with her iPhone of the space shuttle Endeavour’s final launch as seen from her seat on a flight. This of course has gone rapidly viral. This is a bit more impressive than the ubiquitous “beautiful sunset” photos we are all guilty of taking when flying.

Relatedly, a couple months ago, an airplane passenger also made a video recording from his seat of space shuttle Discovery’s final launch as well. Even today I find these launches quite amazing.
