Hurricane Earl: The Astronaut View

The relatively placid view from the International Space Station belied  the potent forces at work in Hurricane Earl as it hovered northeast of  Puerto Rico on Aug. 30, 2010. With maximum sustained winds of 135 miles  (215 kilometers) per hour, the storm was classified as a category 4 on  the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale as it passed north of the Virgin  Islands. In this photograph captured with a digital SLR camera  by NASA astronaut Douglas Wheelock, Earl had a distinct eye that spanned  about 17 miles (28 kilometers). Most of the storm had a seemingly  uniform top, though the bottom edge of the image gives some sense of the  towering thunderheads forming over the ocean. The solar panels of the  ISS remind us that the sun is still shining, at least on ISS Expedition  24.
"Hurricane Earl is gathering some serious strength,"  Wheelock wrote from his perch on ISS. "It is incredible what a  difference a day makes when you’re dealing with this force of nature.  Please keep a watchful eye on this one…not sure if Earl will go  quietly into the night like Danielle." (via NASA)
