Hurricane Florence From Space

Hurricanes are huge and devastating forces, made even stronger in recent years, due to warming oceans, and a changing climate.  We’re amazed by the ability for humans to now witness these massive storms from the vantage point of space. Below are a collection of images both from satellites and the International Space Station, showing the size and power of Hurricane Florence, due to impact the east coast of the United States this week. From such a height, the cyclone almost appears peaceful and gentle, yet ground level would tell an entirely different story, with 100+mph winds, and recorded waves of over 85 feet high. Marvel at the beauty of nature, respect the power, and stay safe. Via NASA:
