Watching the scene unfold from space, German Alexander Gerst, an astronaut on board the ISS, tweeted photos of the enormous storm.

The massive storm was captured on a high-definition camera from the International Space Station as it barreled across the Atlantic Ocean with its 130 miles per hour winds. "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you", Gerst writes.

Astronaut Ricky Arnold, who is aboard the ISS, also snapped a picture of the storm, writing that the ISS crew is "thinking of those who will be affected" by its devastation.

However, in the ISS astronaut's second post, he revealed an expansive view of the hurricane with its eye at several hundred kilometers off the US East Coast and its outer cloud bands already approaching Nort Carolina.
