Hurricane Florence Is a No Kidding Nightmare in These New Astronaut Photos

Hurricane Florence, on its way across the Atlantic Ocean toward North Carolina, dominates photos and video from the International Space Station, where astronauts are using wide-angle lenses because of how far the storm extends.

“Watch out, America!” German astronaut Alexander Gerst wrote on Twitter this morning (Sept. 12). “#HurricaneFlorence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the @Space_Station, 400 km [250 miles] directly above the eye.”

“Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you,” he added.

Gerst and American astronaut Ricky Arnold captured the Category 4 storm and its swirling eye up close in images posted to Twitter this morning, emphasizing its epic scale and their thoughts for people in its path.

“#HurricaneFlorence this morning with Cape Hatteras #NorthCarolina in the foreground,” Arnold wrote this morning. “The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected.”
