By the way fguihen, if you just go to your Yahoo or Google search engine, click on the 'Images' search option and type in hurricane seen from space, you'll get the thumbnails to images on the web. Look under the thumbnails of your search results for the image size. It looks like the largest size you'll get will be 3032 by 2064 pixels from most of the results I found, which is capable of A2-size print.
