Nasa Talks About The Spiraling Winds- Space Station

Hurricane Sandy’s angry eye and massive, 900-mile wide body were seen from unequaled views in two original videos of the storm captured and posted by the International Space Station by NASA , each taken during a divide orbit of the station around Earth. 

The vast swath of the storm and its counter-clockwise spiraling winds show almost tranquil in these views, but can be seen visibly edging nearer to landfall on the United States’ East Coast in both images, which were captured by a remote-controlled camera external of the station. The space station itself is orbiting Earth from 260 miles up and traveling at 17,000 miles-per-hour.
