Typhoon From Space

Amazing photos at the link.
Typhoon Maysak taken by Samantha Cristoforetti

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) have taken dramatic photos showing super Typhoon Maysak as it moves towards the Philippines.
Micronesia Red Cross says the typhoon has killed at least nine people — all in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) — as it has swept across the north-west Pacific. 
Samantha Cristoforetti, an Italian astronaut, photographed the category-five storm system as the ISS passed over the Pacific.~snip~
 It never fails to astound me how powerful and awesome the weather is on our planet.
