Shuttle STS 134 launch taken from a plane...shuttle breaks through the clouds

Stefanie Gordon captured this remarkable picture on a flight from New York to Palm Beach, Fla., after the final liftoff of space shuttle Endeavour near Cape Canaveral on Monday, May 16.
“It’s awe inspiring. I would never expect to be that close,” Gordon said. “I didn’t grasp the magnitude until after the fact.”
She also didn’t anticipate the response she got. “I’ve been retweeted by NASA, The Weather Channel. … I can’t even keep up with my friends! It’s really overwhelming. I just got off the plane and tweeted what I saw.”
Gordon was grateful for the in-flight announcement from the pilot.
“I was asleep and happened to wake up," she said. Her first thought: “Great – the one time I don’t have my camera with me.”
She shot the photos and the video on an iPhone 3Gs.
A self-described  lover of photography, Gordon usually keeps a trusty Canon PowerShot camera on hand, mostly for shooting pictures at Yankees’ games, where she’s a season ticket holder.

" We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
