Super Typhoon Maysak From Space Captured By Astrounauts

929

Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti snapped these photos of Super Typhoon Maysak as it swirled in the western Pacific Ocean earlier this week. The photos show a pronounced eye center of the storm that at the time was a Category 5 storm — the top rung of the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale.
NASA says their weather satellites estimated that rainfall was falling at the rate of about 2 inches an hour in the rain bands outside the eye wall with peak wind gusts of 160 mph.
