Astronauts see superstorm Sandy from space station

The superstorm that's ravaging the U.S. East Coast is enormous, even when seen from space.
The commander of the International Space Station, Sunita Williams, said Tuesday that she and her crew were able to make out the big swirl at the center of Sandy as it neared land Monday.
Her family lives in New England, and she's keeping a special watch over what's happening in the region.
As for the other big news _ the U.S. presidential election _ Williams and the other American on board, Kevin Ford, already have cast their votes. The two filed absentee ballots before rocketing into orbit from Kazakhstan. Ford arrived at the space station last week.
