This image of Hurricane Frances was acquired by the crew of the
International Space Station early on August 30 as the storm was moving
westward some 265 miles east-northeast of the northern Windward Islands.
The storm was packing winds of 120 miles per hour at the time and
appeared to be tracking towards the Bahamas Islands and eventually
Florida. A large, ragged eye is visible with a large arc of high clouds
flowing away from the top of the storm.
