NASA's "picture of the day" as well as ours: Hurricane Dorian is seen from aboard the International Space Station during a flyover on Monday, Sept. 2, 2019, from 200 miles above the Earth. Photo was snapped by NASA Astronaut Christian Koch.

NASA scientists are keeping their eyes on Hurricane Dorian, as are the hurricane hunters and meteorologists throughout the United States as the Category 4 storm now threatens Florida and much of the southeastern US coastline.

“Our Earth satellites and aircraft have a unique ability to watch as storms form, travel across the ocean and sometimes make landfall while giving details on a hurricane’s heavy rain, cloud height and wind, NASA said in a statement on its website Monday afternoon.
