Amazing Shots Of Shuttle Endeavour Thanks To @NASATweetup

May 16, 2011

Not long after the space shuttle Endeavour blasted into space this morning, shuttle enthusiasts were using the #NASATweetup hashtag on Twitter to share photos.

Texas-based photographer Trey Ratcliff's shot of the shuttle as it entered the clouds above the Kennedy Space Center is striking.

And Stefanie Gordon of New Jersey reports she got quite a view from her seat aboard aboard a passenger jet after the shuttle broke through the clouds. "Three things about my flight," she wrote when she posted the photo. "I can lay down across 3 seats just fine, it was freezing & I got to see this."
