The eye of Hurricane Earl in the Atlantic Ocean is captured by videographer Jane Peterson aboard NASA's DC-8 research aircraft on Monday, Aug. 30, 2010. The DC-8 passed through the eye of the storm six times just as Earl was intensifying from a Category 2 to a Category 4 hurricane. The flights are part of the Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) experiment, a NASA Earth science field experiment being conducted to better understand how tropical storms form and develop into major hurricanes.
