Hurricane Earl and the ISS (International Space Station) just happen to be within view of each other right now and we're starting to see some great pictures of this massive hurricane. I will post more pictures as I find them.
As it stands now, Earl is a strong category 3 storm, that is expected to at least, glance the Outer Banks on the East Coast and will do so as a category 4 or 5 storm. Eastern and Northeastern parts of this country are on Hurricane Watches and Warnings at this time.
