Hurricane Earl As Seen From the International Space Station

Shot on August 30th from the International Space Station, NASA released this photo which shows Hurricane Earl as a category 4 storm from the perspective of space. The photo was snapped by NASA astronaut Douglas Wheelock with a DSLR camera.

With maximum sustained winds of 135 miles, it’s unique views like this, rather than weather radar animations, that really puts the power of nature into perspective.

  1. Whether it’s the possibility of a hurricane or just potential for a thunderstorm, making prepartions and paying attention to the weather in general is the responsible and adult thing to do. Worst case scenario, you have dinner in the house for a few days anda full tank of gas. Whoopee. If you find that difficult, then I don’t know what to tell you.
