NASA Astronaut Ricky Arnold tweeted two photographs on Aug. 22, 2018, showing the view of Hurricane Lane from the International Space Station.
Astronauts and weather satellites are watching closely as Hurricane Lane threatens Hawai‘i.
Views from space, courtesy of Space.com, offer a shocking look at the massive daunting the storm is.
Hurricane Lane was briefly a Category 5 storm but has now been downgraded to a Category 4.
The hurricane, which is forecast to began pummeling the Big Island Aug. 23, has already prompted the governor of Hawai‘i to declare a state of emergency.
Arnold and the crew of the @Space_Station send “much aloha to everyone there.”
