Astronauts Admire Hurricane Katia from Above


"Hurricane Katia may be no threat to U.S., so just enjoy beauty of storm," tweeted astronaut Mike Fossum, who is living aboard the orbiting laboratory until mid-November.

Hurricane Katia is the second hurricane to form during the 2011 hurricane season, which has been predicted to spawn an above-average 14 to 19 named storms (which include tropical storms and hurricanes), seven to 10 hurricanes and three to five major hurricanes. An average Atlantic hurricane season will see 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. August through October are the peak months of the Atlantic hurricane season.
