NASA Astronauts have been sending back jaw dropping images of Super Typhoon Maysak, headed toward the Philippines with winds of nearly 240 km/hr. Astronaut Terry Virts uploaded some incredible photos of the eye of Maysak to his Twitter account as well and they provide one of the best views of an intense tropical cyclone ever made from low Earth orbit.
The Super Typhoone is likely going to hit the northern Philippines in about two days, but it should weaken somewhat to a Category 2 storm with winds of around 180 km/hr.
