high res (1.2 M) low res (80 K)
ISS028-E-035407 (31 Aug. 2011) --- Katia was a tropical storm gathering energy over the Atlantic Ocean when one of the Expedition 28 crew members took this oblique photo on Aug. 31 from aboard the International Space Station. The picture, taken with a 12-mm focal length, was captured at 14:10:16 GMT. Later in the day Katia was upgraded to hurricane status. Two Russian spacecraft -- a Progress and a Soyuz -- can be seen parked at the orbital outpost on the left side of the frame.
