NASA Satellites View Gulf Oil Spill
Two NASA satellites are capturing images of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, which began April 20, 2010, with the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. This series of images shows a space-based view of the burning oil rig and the ensuing spill through May 24. The images come from the MODIS instruments aboard NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites.
