SL3-122-2587 (September 1973) --- The swirling clouds of Hurricane Ellen (31.0 degrees north, 54.0 degrees west) over the Atlantic Ocean are shown clearly in this 70mm photograph taken by the Skylab 3 crew members. No well defined eye is apparent; a cirrus cloud cap covers the storm, with wisps of the ice crystal layer of this cloud visible even beyond the storm and strong pattern of rotating clouds.
