Space Station Cameras Capture Nature’s Extremes

Aboard the International Space Station, external and crew-tended cameras captured new views of Hurricane Katia as it sped north over the Atlantic west of Bermuda at 10:10 a.m. EDT on Sept. 8, 2011, packing winds of 90 miles an hour and, an hour-and-a-half later, views of the lingering wildfires in central Texas from a vantage point 230 miles above the Earth.  credit:  NASA
