ISS astronaut snaps pic of Super Typhoon Vongfong

Friday, October 10th, 2014 10:50am MST

Wow!   NASA Astronaut Reid Wiseman aboard the International Space Station snapped this picture yesterday of Super Typhoon   Vongfong  saying on Twitter, “I’ve seen many from here, but none like this.”

At latest report from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, the massive storm was generating wind gusts over 160 mph.  It is 220 nm south-southeast of Okinawa, Japan moving north at 9 mph.  U.S. military assets in the area are on alert as the storm is expected to pass very close to Kadena Air Base Saturday night local time (9:00am MDT).
