Discovery's Final Launch Viewed From a Commercial Jet: how cool! Note how strongly stratified the lower atmosphere is.

As an atmospheric physicist it is neat to see (via the exhaust trail) how generally stratified the atmosphere was for that launch, must have been a relatively smooth ride. Best of luck to the crew on their mission. Thanks to former student VL for sending me this!
