One thing to know about Cyclone Debbie, which is set to lash the northeast Australian coast Tuesday: It’s big.
That’s abundantly clear in footage captured by the International Space Station (ISS). Posted by the Force Thirteen YouTube channel, which tracks tropical cyclones, the ISS apparently caught Cyclone Debbie as it intensified in the Coral Sea.
As of writing, the eye wall of the cyclone was starting to hit parts of Queensland’s Whitsunday Islands. According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the cyclone is Category 4, with possible wind gusts to 250 kilometres (155 miles) per hour.
Probably safer to be tucked up on the ISS, to be honest.
