Caption: Hurricane Harvey from the ISS. NASA astronaut Jack Fischer obtained this photograph of Hurricane Harvey at 13:15 UTC on 25 August 2017, viewing the storm from the cupola module aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The image shows the storm intensifying on its way toward the Texas coast. The Expedition 52 crew on the ISS tracked this storm before and after it made landfall in Texas, photographing and videoing it from low Earth orbit. Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a category 4 storm near Rockport, Texas, on 26 August 2017. It weakened to a tropical storm and became a slow-moving system that deluged the greater Houston area with rain, causing catastrophic flooding.
