The answer, of course, depends on the exact date of when someone first flew over or photographed with a satelite and area being affected by a hurricane. As hurricanes, near their centers especially, are areas of extremely low pressure, pilots avoid them at all costs. Meteorologists associated with coutries that had launched the first satelites were the first to reconize the hurricans spiral shape. Also, sea captains were probably able to estimate what a hurricane would look like, as they form over water and begin their spiraling, swirling movement then.
