Up, up and away: amazing space shuttle photo

» See video at Flickr

Event planner Stefanie Gordon of Florida is an instant Internet celebrity (there’s no other kind) with photos of the space shuttle Endeavour as it hurtled away from Kennedy Space Centre into orbit and a rendezvous with the International Space Shuttle.

Stefanie, on board a flight from New York to Florida to visit her parents, saw Endeavour bursting through the clouds near her plane. The photos, grabbed with her iPhone and posted on Flickr, were a sensation, and she has been inundated with interview requests and Twitter responses. Photo © Stephanie Gordon / @stefmara
