OnOrbit: September 2019

Christina H Koch @Astro_Christina: What it looks like from @Space_Station when your best friend achieves her lifelong dream to go to space.

The International Space Station was flying 255 miles above the border between Sudan and Egypt near 1 a.m. local time when an Expedition 60 crewmember photographed this oblique view of the Nile River and its delta.

NASA's Terra Satellite provided a visible image of Hurricane Humberto when it was off the coast of the Carolinas and slowly moving north.

This Copernicus Sentinel-1 image takes us just south of the US border, to the region of Baja California in northwest Mexico. Its capital city, Mexicali, is visible top left of the image.

Expedition 60 flight engineer Christina Koch of NASA captured this image of Hurricane Dorian from the International Space Station on Sept. 2, 2019 as the storm churned over the northwestern Bahamas.

Astronaut Nick Hague, aboard the International Space Station, posted this photograph of Hurricane Dorian to Twitter on Sept. 2, 2019. He added, "You can feel the power of the storm when you stare into its eye from above. Stay safe everyone!" Larger image
