Video: Space Station Crew Spies Hurricane Earl

NASA today posted video of Hurricane Earl taken by the Expedition 24 crew aboard the International Space Station as the storm—a Category 4 at the time—swirled northeast of Puerto Rico.

Partially narrated by an unidentified crew member, the video was shot around 5:30 p.m. ET on August 30 from 218 miles (350 kilometers) above Earth.

As of today, Earl is predicted to sweep northward along the U.S. East Coast, and it may make landfall as far up as Nova Scotia, Canada.
