‘Watch out, America!’: Astronauts in space photographed Hurricane Florence, and they say the view is ‘chilling’
Hurricane Florence is a Category 4 storm headed for the US's East Coast and predicted to start affecting South Carolina and North Carolina as early as Thursday. Because of its enormous size and power, the storm has been a recent — if not frightening — muse for astronaut photography.
Hurricane Florence is predicted to slam into the US East Coast as a major storm. Two other hurricanes — Isaac and Helene — have also appeared in the Atlantic Ocean. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station recently saw all three hurricanes and photographed two of them.
Juno's high-speed flybys around Jupiter, called perijoves, happen once every 53.5 days and have allowed NASA to document the gas giant like never before. The most recent trip (Juno's 14th perijove) occurred on July 16. Here's what the probe saw.
China launched two microsatellites, called Longjiang-1 and Longjiang-2, to the moon in May. One of the spacecraft took stunning new photos of Earth and the moon with a Saudi Arabian camera system. The photos show Earth against the black void of space.
NASA’s $1 billion Jupiter probe just beamed back even more jaw-dropping photos of the planet’s tireless storm clouds
Juno, a tennis-court-size NASA probe at Jupiter, recently sent scientists a new batch of data, and the photos it included are even more stunning than the last set. They show powerful cyclones, chaotic cloud bands, and messes of blue-hued patterns near the planet's poles.
NASA's Juno mission took its 11th trip around Jupiter in February, and the spacecraft has beamed back beautiful new images of the giant planet.

Spacecraft are photographing an intense winter storm that's pummeling the eastern US with coastal flooding and blizzard-like snow and wind conditions.
Pictures from space remind us just how small, lucky, and plucky we are as human beings on a tiny rock that's floating through space.
Many of 2017's most important news stories were documented in remarkably detailed images taken by orbiting space satellites.
