Hurricane Ike seen from the ISS

The forces of nature can be awesome. The sheer size and power of Hurricane Ike was witnessed by millions here on Terra Firma, but a select few had a dry view high up in the sky. These Astronauts aboard the International Space Station saw massive Ike from 220 miles up and took some amazing pictures of the storm from this vantage point. The kind folks at Nasa were nice ‘nough to make the full resolution pics available to us land dwellers so we too can witness the magnitude of the storm.
