NASA Footage Showing Gulf Oil Spill from Space

Visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9W2fmCfKx_4&feature=player_embedded# to see a two-minute video of compiled NASA imagery showing the view from space of the burning Deepwater Horizon oil rig and the subsequent oil spill. The images were taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (or MODIS) instrument and selected to best show the disaster. The images begin with the oil rig explosion on April 20, 2010 and include images acquired through May 24, 2010. The latest images and other NASA stories are available at http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/oilspill/.
