Image Caption: This photo of Hurricane Ivan was snapped as the International Space Station passed over the eye of the storm on Saturday, September 11, 2004, about 15 minutes after 23:00 GMT (7 p.m. EDT). At the time, Ivan was wobbling west off its predicted course, its eye just missing Jamaica. The storm was a powerful and dangerous Category 5 storm with sustained winds reaching to 270 kilometers per hour (165 mph) and higher gusts.

With tropical storm-force winds extending 280 kilometers from the eye, Ivan covers nearly the entire visible portion of the Earth in the above photo (22160). Portions of the ISS hardware (solar arrays) appear in the upper right corner.
