New NASA Satellite Image of Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill (Taken May 1st) Now Online

In an announcement dated May 3rd, a new satellite image of the spill is online via the NASA Earth Observatory Web Site.

NASA's Terra satellite flew over the Deepwater Horizon rig's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday, May 1 and captured a natural-color image of the slick from space. The oil slick resulted from an accident at the Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument on NASAís Terra satellite captured a natural-color image. The oil slick appeared as a tangle of dull gray on the ocean surface, made visible to the satellite sensor by the sunís reflection on the ocean surface. On May 1, most of the oil slick was southeast of the Mississippi Delta.

You can access the NASA image taken Saturday at this URL.

A larger version of the is also available.
