Alexander Gerst, an ESA Astronaut and one of the six crew members currently living at the International Space Station, has recently tweeted about the massive hurricane Florence that is headed America's way. Gerst was able to share several images of the hurricane in a series of tweets that were meant to capture the enormity of the category 4 hurricane. In his tweet, Gerst also mentions that the hurricane was too huge to be captured in a normal lens and that a wide-angle lens had to be employed for the same. The images accompanying the tweet solidify his concern as the hurricane Florence can be seen covering almost the entire curvature of the Earth visible from the space station.

In another tweet, Gerst also shared the images of the eye of the hurricane. The tweet mentions how it is "chilling, even from space" to look at.

You can have a look at the tweets and the chilling images of the hurricane Florence below:
