A possible oil slick was observed in satellite imagery. The slick appeared 
to originate from the location of either from an oil platform or a sunken 
barge nearby. But the anomaly is believed to correspond to NRC report 
#1212987. The slick is about 1.1 nm long, with a maximum width of 0.06 
nm wide. It exhibits a slivery appearance in high resolution imagery and 
 the orientation aligns well with ocean current data near the time of 
the image.

Confidence is medium high that the anomaly’s exact extent is unknown
due to scanning dropouts in Landsat-7 imagery.
