File:Hurricane Ivan ISS.jpg


Description As Hurricane Ivan's sustained 200 kilometer per hour winds wreaked havoc in the Caribbean, the swirling eye of the hurricane was photographed on September 11, 2004 from aboard the orbiting International Space Station (ISS) at an altitude of about 230 miles. Rotated 180 degrees to give more of a visual clue that we're above it.
