NASA posts phenomenal video of Hurricane Florence from station

WATCH: Space Station's view of Hurricane Florence looks eerily apocalyptic

This Insane Photo Of Hurricane Florence Is Going Viral

Additionally, European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst took to Twitter on Wednesday to share photos of the hurricane from space, while stressing the severity of the storm.

Describing Hurricane Florence as "a no-kidding nightmare" is certainly appropriate, with Gerst warning Americans on the East Coast to prepare for the storm's arrival.

Viewed through the wide-angle camera of the International Space Station which orbits at 250 miles (400 kilometers) above Earth, Hurricane Florence appears swirling above the Atlantic Ocean as it's moving west-northwest towards the North and SC.

Gerst went on to add that seeing the hurricane is chilling, even from space, and shared an additional of three pictures that speak for themselves.

A high definition camera outside the International Space Station captured a NASA view of Hurricane Florence on September 12, 2018.

Hurricane Florence is approaching the Eastern Coast of the United States with serious fervor.

Hurricane Florence weakens, but still a strong flood threat
Wednesday update shows the storm changing course and moving more into SC after the hurricane would make landfall. The hurricane center's projected track previously had Florence charging into the North Carolina coast on Friday.

Florence is now a powerful Category 3 storm with winds of 125mph, and is expected to strengthen before making landfall along the Carolina coast later this week.

Hurricane Florence is at the doorstep of North and SC, and she's not going away anytime soon.

It is estimated that the wind speed in the eye of the hurricane reaches more than 200 kilometers per hour.

Those warily staring at Florence grasp in contrast it to Hurricanes Fran and Hugo, which pummeled North Carolina and SC, respectively, more than two decades ago.
