Gulf oil gusher - today's view from orbit

Here's the latest NASA photo from orbit of oil from the BP Deepwater Horizon leak.

It was taken just after noon today (Monday 5/17) by the Terra Earth-Observing Satellite.

The oil slick appears dull gray, stretching from the tip of the Mississippi River delta out into the Gulf.
