NASA sees Hurricane Florence open an evil-looking eye

In fact, Gerst wrote on Twitter that Hurricane Florence is "so enormous" it could only fit in the frame of a wide-angle camera.

"I have just been informed that this is one of the worst hurricanes that came to the East coast for many years".

Meanwhile, NASA's Aqua satellite snapped an infrared image of Hurricane Florence on September 11, at 2:30 a.m. EDT.

The 400-mile wide hurricane reached Category 4 strength on Monday and was expected to continue to strengthen as it approaches the United States and the coast of the Carolinas and Virginia, according to the National Hurricane Center. He said on Wednesday that the ISS's crew "is thinking of those who will be affected". Forecasters said Florence could become an extremely risky major hurricane sometime Monday and remain that way for days. Winds this morning reached 130 miles per hour (200 km/h) and will likely strengthen before it arrives, officials said.

MASS panic has erupted on America's east coast as millions are evacuated before Category 4 Hurricane Florence batters the States. The NHC says the storm may push a "life-threatening" surge of seawater ashore into these and other areas.

He added: "I'm happy I was part of such a great show". "Perfect", Teigen can be heard saying after Legend places his latest award. John now joins the ranks of other EGOT icons like Audrey Hepburn , Andrew Lloyd Webber , Whoopi Goldberg , and Mel Brooks .

Quick on Florence's heels, two more powerful storms are crossing the Atlantic, tracked by NASA satellites: Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene.

A high-definition camera outside the International Space Station captured video Tuesday.

Astronaut Alexander Gerst also joined in the fun, explaining that the courageous space men and women need wide-lense cameras to take these incredible photos.

In addition to the wide shots, some of Gerst's photos are zoomed-in views showing a look nearly directly down into Florence's giant eye.
