Typhoon Trami also covers part of the International Space Station
Last month, people had to endure a series of dangerous destructive storms. The last was typhoon Trami, attacking Japan this week with a destructive wind and rainstorms. ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst was able to trace the formation of a large-scale weather monster from his position aboard the ISS. Gerst posted on the network several amazing snapshots of a feature that resembles an awesome eye.
“It seems as if you pulled a cork out of a huge bath. Or is it an eye! The 5th category Typhoon Trami is coming to Japan and Taiwan, ”Gerst wrote on Twitter on September 26. Tramie's eye is particularly impressive against the backdrop of clouds. The images include especially close ups on the center of the storm. Views from the ISS resemble those of Hurricane Florence, which in early September attacked the United States. Event-induced flooding still does not leave some residents of South Carolina alone. The data suggests that Trami reached “super typhoon” status, traveling at a speed of 241 km / h. Now the storm has subsided a bit, but still remains a threat.
