The astronauts on the Space Station took a cool video of Hurricane Irene on Wednesday. It's up on YouTube.

There's no sound, and it's almost three minutes long. But at least watch the beginning of it, because the hurricane looks HUGE...which it is. It's about 500 miles across.

But it looks even bigger in the video, because you can see the curve of the Earth, and Irene STILL fills up the whole screen.
