Viewing Hurricanes from Space

The website has compiled a set of 25 impressive photos of hurricanes, as seen from orbit.

The crew aboard the International Space Station was able to take a photo of Ike from 220 miles overhead last Thursday - one in a long series of great NASA photographs of hurricanes from space.

Strange that something so beautiful can also bring such distress with it. I'm looking at the likelihood that Ike will smash right into the Texas coast--where my Dad is working, where my Mom will be so she can help her best friend evacuate, and where my In-Laws live.

And yet, I can't help but be absolutely entranced by images such as these. It's like the emotional equivalent of lying in a tub of scalding water and being doused with ice. Has anyone else ever experienced something like this...?
