Hurricane Florence wide-angle

ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst took this image of Hurriacane Florence on 12 September 2018, 400 km high from the International Space Station. He commented:


"Watch out, America! Hurricane Florence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide angle lens from the International Space Station, 400 km directly above the eye. Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you."


Alexander is on his second six-month Space Station mission. Follow him and the Horizons mission on social media on his website and on his blog.
