Hurricane Jose latest – Jose and Irma caught in astronaut’s photo from space | Science | News

ISS commander Randy Bresnik has been keeping a close on Hurricane Irma from above and sharing the images with his followers on Twitter.

Not only did Mr Bresnik capture the weather disaster on photograph, but in the same picture, uploaded with the caption “Unfortunately, a tale of two hurricanes”, the astronaut gave earthlings a view of the smaller Hurricane Jose.

Mr Bresnik also got up close and personal with Jose, sharing a photo of the massive eye of the storm.

He wrote on Twitter: “The eye of Jose, may it veer north and east away from those so affected by Irma’s wrath already.”

The 50-year old astronaut commander also managed to take a picture of the devastation caused by the two hurricanes.

In a picture of the Turks and Caicos Islands, the “beautiful sands of Turks & Caicos churned up into a kaleidoscope of colours” following Hurricane Irma’s arrival.

People were stunned by the images, with one writing: “Such a beautiful site to be so destructive.”

Another added: “It seems so quiet and beautiful from above.”

Hurricane Irma began as a category five hurricane, and after tearing through the Caribbean Islands, it was downgraded to a category two, but still maintains wind speeds of 110mph.

Irma is currently located “near Naples” on the west coast of Florida, after Miami was surprisingly spared a direct hit due to a sudden change in direction early today.

The storm is expected to continue in a “north-northwestward” motion, with northern Florida and Georgia next in line.
