On average, they are approximately 300 to 400 miles wide. It takes a satellite from space to capture the full scope of this magnificent and many times very dangerous cyclone.

The first satellite images that were of any real use for tracking hurricanes were from the late 1960's. You will notice the technological advances in the quality of the images as you compare hurricane pictures from past decades to the present. Some of the more notable hurricanes of the past several decades are listed. They include Hurricane Camille, Hurricane Andrew, Hurricane Katrina and many more.
