Photos: Hurricane Arthur from space

These photos show just how powerful this storm is
Astronaut Reid Wiseman is giving updates on Hurricane Arthur that few humans get to witness: what it looks like from above.

"Just flew over TS #Arthur" he tweeted Wednesday morning, when it was still a tropical storm, "hoping it heads to sea. Looks mean."

As Arthur sped away from the International Space Station where Wiseman works, he tweeted another photo Thursday morning.

Now officially a hurricane, you can tell it's gained power, even from farther away.

This isn't the first time NASA's Wiseman has stunned us on social media. Last week he posted a Vine of a thunderstorm from space.
