Hurricane Irma is shaping up to be a storm for the record books. On Tuesday afternoon, the storm had sustained winds of 185 MPH, making it the 2nd most powerful Atlantic storm in history. The astronauts aboard the International Space Station got a birds eye view of the monstrous storm as it barrels towards the Caribbean.
The International Space Station tweeted out a 5 minute video taken from the cameras positioned outside the station. The camera is barely able to keep all 400-plus miles of Irma in the frame, despite being 250 miles above the Earth.
