Irene Almost 1/3 the Size of East Coast. Irene has become a major hurricane, and NASA satellite data shows its diameter is now about 510 miles -- roughly 1/3 the length of the U.S. Atlantic coastline. Hurricane watches are in effect for much of the East Coast.

    You tree hugger. It's a rock, hurtling around a violent, medium-sized star at 33,000 mph. If Earth wasn't habitable, we wouldn't be here. We would be on another planet, with tree huggers like you saying how THAT planet was our mother and what have you.

    Anyhow. The proportions are wild. Thanks to all of the storms right now, we have an excellent illustration of Earth's jetstreams and other wind patterns.
