The Big Picture: An astronaut’s view of Hurricane Arthur
While the solar panel from the ISS glides above North America, Hurricane Arthur moves up the east coast. Arthur, a category 2 storm, is the first of the season. The ISS captured this image yesterday, prior to its landfall in North Carolina this morning — leaving many locals no choice but to put holiday celebrations on hold and evacuate the area. Arthur is expected to strengthen, while astronauts on the Space Station continue to observe from above.
