Photos from Today’s Space Station Flyover Of Hurricane Irene
This afternoon, starting at approximately 3:45 pm EDT, the International Space Station flew over Hurricane Irene. The flyover lasted approximately 6 minutes. At one point a member of the crew reacted to the sheer size of this storm by saying “We are used to travelling long distances – but this storm stretches from Cuba to Carolinas — this is a huge scary storm”. The flyover was shown live on NASA TV. Below are screen grabs made during the flyover taken from different cameras aboard the ISS.
