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

One of the astronauts who took images of Hurricane Florence was Alexander Gerst, a German astronaut onboard the International Space Station.

The 500-mile-wide hurricane, which is barreling toward the USA east coast, is expected to make landfall on Thursday night, but then the storm's movement will slow to a crawl, meaning that some coastal areas will get as much as 24 hours of battering winds and rain.

With Hurricane Florence churning toward the East Coast, NASA released a stunning video and photos of the storm from space.

In the first tweet, Alexander Gerst shared images of the Hurricane Florence's eye as the "no-kidding nightmare" storm is swirling above the Atlantic Ocean. "It's chilling, even from space", Gerst captioned the photos.

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.
