The Hawaiian Islands in the previous twitpic are, from left to right:  Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, Kahoolawe, and Hawaii.  Here is a photo that I meant to tweet a few weeks ago…this is the eye of Hurricane Igor. I know the contrast is not so good, but I wanted you to see this…

No problem Wheels... I want to see astronaut's view. I want to see all things... Not only "good things" but also "bad things"...

Only the darkest (very small) spots are the sea surface. Here is a view straight down into the eye from directly overhead: ftp://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ESC_large_ISS024_ISS024-E-14483.JPG
