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.

It is impossible to know when the first hurricane occurred. These storms were occurring long before people were around to record them.

First of all, it's a spiral galaxy, not an spiral galaxy. Second, a spiral galaxy would have a spiral shape, obviously.

the elliptical galaxy has a round or oval shape the spiral galaxy has a hurricane shape The origin of these different shapes would lie in the particular momentum of the constituent stars at the time they first coalesced into a galaxy under their mutual gravitational attraction.

The first recorded hurricane was during one of Columbus's voyages. Hurricanes undoubtedly happened before then. The first named hurricane was Able in 1950.

The first hurricane on Earth didn't have a name as there were no people around to name them. However, the first official hurricane name given to a storm in the Atlantic basin was "Able" given to a category 4 hurricane in the 1950 hurricane season. The storm affected North Carolina, New England, and Atlantic Canada, causing 11 fatalities, and a total of $1.041 million (1950 USD) $9.5 million (2010 USD) in damage.

Edwin Hubble was the first astronomer to describe spiral galaxies. Shu and Lin were the first to vocalise an acceptable theory for the structure. Galaxies had been discovered much earlier but were not intially described as or categorised as spiral galaxies.
