Here is an incredible view of Super Typhoon Vongfong as the Internation Space Station passed overhead on October 9, 2014. At that time the storm was at the height of its strength with reported sustained winds of 178 mph and gusts to 190 mph. Notice how perfectly symmetrical the eye looks.
The latest satellite picture shows the center of the storm just to the north of the Okinawa. Winds are now (Saturday Oct 11, 2015 9am PDT) being reported just over 100mph.
