ISS Astronauts Tweet a Bunch of Pictures of Massive Typhoon Neoguri

TL;DR: Astronauts are great at Twitter. Storms make us feel small.

Whenever there’s a big weather event, you can count on the astronauts aboard the International Space Station to send out some pretty amazing pictures to put it into perspective. Although, unlike when you try to put a bad day into perspective, putting a hurricane or a typhoon into perspective mostly just makes them look even scarier and more awe inspiring.

As of this writing, the storm has hit Okinawa, Japan, and is making its way inland. Luckily, only 20 people in Okinawa were injured due to Neoguri’s heavy rains and 80 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 114 mph.
