The goal of the ongoing CyMISS (Tropical Cyclone intensity Measurements from the ISS) project is to acquire image sequences of intense tropical cyclones (TCs), such as hurricanes and typhoons, to support the development of an improved remote sensing method to determine more accurately the strength of these destructive storms using stereoscopy. Funded by CASIS (Center for the Advancement of Science in Space) which manages the ISS US National Laboratory for NASA, this project has amassed a large collection of storm images during the last four years that we wish to share. One of the TCs observed for CyMISS by the crew of the ISS in 2017 was the Pacific storm, Hurricane Eugene, off the Pacific coast of Mexico.
This is one of the original color photographs (ISS052-E-13770) of Hurricane Eugene taken by the crew of the ISS at 17:24:26 GMT on July 10, 2017 in support of CyMISS. The entire hurricane is visible in this wide-angle image as is a part of the coast of Baja California in the foreground. Click on image to enlarge. (NASA/JSC)
