Stefanie Gordon was in the right airspace at the right time on a clear Monday morning earlier this month. The unemployed event planner snapped and tweeted a photo of the space shuttle Endeavor soon after it broke through the white clouds on its journey into space.

The next thing she knew, she was “an instant '15-minute celebrity' for a few pictures I took with my phone.” She had so many media interview that she didn’t even find time to write her version of the story until a few days later, and the viral spread of her photos across the Internet raised questions about intellectual property theft.

UPDATE, Dec. 1: Gordon’s tweeted photo earned the No. 6 spot on Twitter’s list of the top 10 tweets of 2011.
