If you don’t have a Twitter or if you do but don’t follow the various astronauts and cosmonauts of the world you miss incredible images like these. These two unbelievable images come from European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti as the International Space Station (ISS) passed over cyclone Bansi in the South Indian Ocean at an altitude of roughly 240 miles. The light you see in the eye of the storm are perfectly placed lightning flashes. From the overhead view, the light from the lightning illuminates the walls of the eye itself. There aren’t really too many words to describe images like this; what it must be so see it with your own eyes.
