Hurricane Irene and Galaxy Formation

We find ourselves in St. Louis for a wedding this coming Sunday as hurricane Irene barrels up the east coast. These amazing satellite photos of the hurricane remind me of models of galactic formation. Especially interesting is the counter-cyclonic motion of the outer edges of the storm.

Make sure you watch the time lapse video at the end.
