Hurricane Irene From Space

By now, you’re well aware how capable NASA is when it comes to creating incredible images. Today, they have released a from-space view of Hurrican Irene as it traveled through the Caribbean.

Again we’re reminded just how important perspective is. It’s a beautiful image of a super-destructive natural force and we’re glad they’re up there to share it with us. Of course, if you want close-up views of extreme weather, you can check out the work of storm photographer, Jim Reed.
