Summary

Description
English: Natural-colour image of the oil slick just off the Louisiana coast. The oil slick appears as dull grey interlocking comma shapes, one opaque and the other nearly transparent. The north-western tip of the oil slick almost touches the Mississippi Delta. Sun-glint, the mirror-like reflection of the Sun off the water—enhances the oil slick’s visibility.
