Harvey | International Space Station


Hurricane in Gulf of Mexico photographed from cupola window in orbit
On August 25, 2017, NASA astronaut Jack Fischer photographed Hurricane Harvey from the cupola module aboard the International Space Station as it intensified on its way toward the Texas coast. The Expedition 52 crew on the station had been tracking this storm for the previous two days and capturing Earth observation photographs and videos from their vantage point in low Earth orbit.
