Photo: NASA Captures Hurricane Irene From Space

Another unique view of our planet

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.
