A camera mounted on the belly of NASA's Global Hawk hurricane drone captured this incredible image of cloud formations over the North Pacific Ocean on April 7, 2010. The flight was part of the Global Hawk Pacific (GloPac) environmental science campaign. The forward fuselage and inner portions of the wings of the drone are visible at the top of the photo.
