For the space geeks out there here is a different point of view of a Space Shuttle launch than what you normally see from the ground. It was filmed on an Air Canada flight and while the video itself isn't too clear through the plane's window it's easy to imagine how cool it would be to see the Shuttle rise past your plane with the naked eye.

@dlowan,
Here's a cool picture of a Space Shuttle making a Prandtl-Glauert Cloud.

@Robert Gentel,
He's a riot. But, that video is cool. My first thought was, "Wow, they planes that close to a shuttle take off?!"

@littlek,
I think the "smoke" makes it look nearer than it is.
