After making landfall in Florida on Wednesday, Hurricane Ian left a trail of destruction in its aftermath. With a wind speed of 150 mph (241 kph), the category four hurricane has become one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the US.

On Thursday, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) posted a clip that documented what Hurricane Ian looked like from space.

While sharing a video of the swirling high-speed winds, NASA wrote, “Hurricane Ian as seen from the International Space Station (@ISS) on Sept. 28, 2022, as it orbited 258 miles (415 km) above.”

The space agency further added, “The vantage point of space, and our fleet of more than 20 Earth-observing satellites, help us provide insights and updates on hurricanes, and other extreme weather events. We collaborate with the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (@NOAA), and design, build and launch some of the satellites that provide data that feed numerical weather prediction models. The video captures Hurricane Ian as it makes landfall in Florida earlier this afternoon at 3 p.m. ET.
