This image of Super Typhoon Maysak is fascinating from space - but I sure wouldn't want to be down there with it. The typhoon had strengthened into a super typhoon, reaching Category 5 hurricane status. This picture was taken from the International Space Station by ESA Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti on March 31, 2015.
