Oil Arrives - Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana - May 5, 2010

Chandeleur Islands, Louisiana begin to see oil spill in the  latest satellite image from the Nasa Earth Observatory. The oil appears like a brown snake in the upper left corner of the image to the left.

The high definition image  link below clearly showns the incoming oil. According to NASA, "Light tan streamers snake across Chandeleur Sound in this detailed natural-color satellite image from May 5, 2010. The streamers are probably ropes of oil from a leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico. The streamers surround Freemason Island and arc through Chandeleur Sound west of the Chandeleur Islands. The image is from the Advanced Land Imager on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite."
