The images from the NASA Terra and Aqua satellites have at times shown the oil slick in the Gulf very dramatically. Today’s is one of the best I have seen. The sun angle was just right. You can also see a smoke plume at the very bottom. This is where they are burning the oil off the top of the ocean. (That seems very strange to have to write.)
How much is leaking? See my previous post.
The newsroom tells me quite a lot of oil washed up on Orange Beach, Alabama today…
