Satellite shows possible oil slicks off Southeast Florida coast (PHOTOS)


If you live in the area please try and get to a tall oceanfront building and take some photos/video.

BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, University of Miami CSTARS, July 12, 2010:

A newly released satellite image shows what could be oil slicks & sheen entrained in the Loop Current/Gulfstream and rounding the southern tip of Florida. Oil may also be pictured further up Florida's east coast, as far north as Cape Canaveral & NASA.

Rarely will UM CSTARS post an image on the university's BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill website unless it contains  visible oil from BP's Deepwater Horizon disaster.

First is an image from just a few hours ago:
