Spirals in Nature: Katrina
Spirals are everywhere! Here’s some impressive video of Hurricane Katrina spiraling onto the Gulf Coast in 2005. Huge and powerful.
Like all good fractals, spirals occur over a huge range of scales, from tiny seashells to gigantic galaxies.
(We’re looking for really hi-resolution hurricane video to include in the planetarium shows, but it’s hard to find. Anyone able to dig some up anywhere?)
