Spectacular images of Isabel are available on both the Internet and NASA Television. Expedition 7 Commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA Science Officer Ed Lu aboard the International Space Station captured the latest images and video as they passed 240 statute miles over the storm.

NASA will continue to monitor the storm and publish images and video as Isabel continues to move toward the Eastern Seaboard. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration uses NASA data as part of its prediction tool kit while working to predict where and when landfall will occur. The data are also vital to hurricane researchers, who seek to understand how these dangerous storms develop and affect people and property on land and at sea.

Video is available on NASA TV's Video File beginning at noon EDT. Still images and animation of Isabel as captured by one of the NASA instruments watching the storm, the MODIS instrument onboard NASA's Terra satellite, are now available on the web at:

On Wednesday, Sept. 17, NASA TV is offering live shots about Isabel and the study of hurricanes, featuring interviews with two NASA scientists and up-to-date views from various NASA satellites. To sign up, contact Rachel Weintraub at 301/286-0918.

B-roll will be run on NASA TV at 6:00 a.m. EDT Sept. 17; an early version of the Video File on Isabel will run on a commercial satellite (coordinates TBD) at 9:00 a.m. EDT, then throughout the day on the NASA TV Video File.

NASA TV is available on AMC-9, transponder 9C, C-Band, located at 85 degrees west longitude. The frequency is 3880.0 MHz. Polarization is vertical, and audio is monaural at 6.80 MHz.
