Hurricane Arthur (NASA, International Space Station, 07/03/14)
Image by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center
As the International Space Station was flying 227 nautical miles above the Bahama Islands, one of the Expedition 40 crew members photographed this image of Hurricane Arthur, moving northerly along the Atlantic coast line. Arthur’s forecast at 11 a.m. (EDT) on July 3, 2014 projected it hitting the coast of North Carolina as a Category 2 hurricane, with winds over 100 mph, on the night of July 3 or the morning of July 4. A tip of one of the solar panels on the orbital outpost is in upper left.
