Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti snapped this image of Typhoon Maysak from the International Space Station on Tuesday, March 31 — the day it was bumped up to "super typhoon" status. The storm has since weakened but thousands have been evacuated ahead of its landfall in the Philippines tomorrow.

Storm was downgraded to an LPA now btw.
