Typhoon Vongfong

The western Pacific Ocean is a breeding ground for typhoons. On October 2, 2014, the region gave birth to one of the year’s most powerful storms—Typhoon Vongfong. Within days of its formation the storm intensified into a Category 5 typhoon, with maximum sustained wind speeds greater than 160 mph. Multiple NASA satellites, along with astronauts aboard the International Space Station, observed the typhoon as its rotating eye headed north toward Japan. This is an astronaut photo of Super Typhoon Vongfong taken from the International Space Station on Oct. 9, 2014.
