During a 10-day period, Hurricane Irene developed as a wave in the Atlantic, traveled up the Eastern seaboard and fizzled out over Maine. Even if you don't live on the East Coast, you probably experienced the hurricane from Category 3 to Category 1 via national news coverage. But have you seen it from space?
Watch Hurricane Irene in action from her birth to death -- from high above it all:
According to Wired, the hurricane was filmed from space using a geostationary weather satellite called GOES-13. The satellite, which was began recording weather in 2010, travels 22,300 miles above the Earth and sends images every 30 minutes.
