NASA astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted pictures of view of the epic storm from the International Space Station on Saturday morning.

“Massive snowstorm blanketing East coast clearly visible from @Space_Station! Stay safe,” Kelly wrote.

Later he posted a picture of a thunderstorm from space.  The major blizzard has coupled in areas with a rare phenomenon known as "Thundersnow."

As the storm hit Tennessee on Friday, residents took to Twitter to report booms amid the snowy sky. On Saturday, Scott noted that he had a front row seat to the "rare #thundersnow" occurring below.

Kelly is currently on a year-long mission in space, which will end in March.

By that time, "he will have compiled 522 total days living in space during four missions," NASA said in a statement.
