Typhoon Neoguri (NASA, International Space Station, 07/07/14) by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center on Flickr.Tramite Flickr:
The International Space Station was just a couple of minutes away from passing directly over the eye of Typhoon Neoguri on July 7, and Expedition 40 Flight Engineer Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency captured its startling dimensions in a series of still photos. In a tweet, Gerst marveled that even with a fish-eye lens (which was used on some more distant angles other than this oblique one), he couldn’t capture the whole storm. A 28mm focal length was used for a small sequence of similar oblique pictures such as this one. The picture was taken at 21:52:29 GMT on July 7, 2014.
Part of the space station remote manipulator system robotic arm or Canadarm2 is in the top portion of the scene.

    The fact that Neoguri means “raccoon” in korean amuses me the name sounds way cooler romanized lolol
