NASA is leveraging its fleet of domestic and international satellites orbiting in space to help track the current lineup of hurricanes gathering steam and heading towards the United States.

The satellites are tracking rainfall, wind speeds, temperatures (as in the image embedded above) and position. The images are staggering both because of the the technology required to obtain them and the size and scope of the storms they depict.
