NASA astronaut Nick Hague shared a photo of Hurricane Dorian taken aboard the International Space Station earlier this week that shows the frightening magnitude of the storm as it pounded the Bahamas.
The dramatic photo shows the massive and terrifying eye of Dorian with angry, swirling clouds above layers of lower clouds and patches of blue ocean at the center far below.
“You can feel the power of the storm when you stare into its eye from above,” Hague wrote on social media from the safety of the Space Station when he shared the photo.

The deadly monster storm ripped through the Bahamas on Sunday, killing at least seven people and smashing neighborhoods to smithereens in the northern part of the islands on its way to the southeastern coast of the United States.
It’s now a Category 2 storm, down from a Category 5 as it moves up the Atlantic coast.
