Stefanie Gordon went from just another passenger on a Delta flight yesterday to an instant Twitter phenomenon when she was lucky enough to capture some stunning images of the launch of space shuttle Endeavour from her seat.
"Three things about my flight," Gordon wrote on Twitter. "I can lay down across 3 seats just fine, it was freezing & I got to see this."
As of this morning, Gordon's initial photo had nearly 175,000 views. She subsequently posted another as well as a video which you can see here.
Gordon, who lives in Hoboken, N.J., was flying from New York City to Palm Beach, Fla. to visit her mother for her birthday and said she had been sleeping for most of the flight. A few hours later, she found herself doing media appearances - which continue today - for her timely shots.
