ISS041-E-011536 (16 Sept. 2014) --- This is the eye of Hurricane Edouard in the Atlantic Ocean, as photographed by one of the Expedition 41 crew members who utilized a 200mm focal length from a position onboard the International Space Station. The crew members photographed and distributed a series of images of the storm via station-to-ground downlinks and via social media. Though having been upgraded from a tropical storm to a Category 2 hurricane, the Atlantic-borne Edouard thus far has avoided land interests as it reached maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour, churning in ocean waters several hundred miles southeast of Bermuda. This photo was taken at 13:52:40 GMT on Sept. 16, 2014.
