Satellite Source: Sentinel 2A
Mode: Multispectral
Resolution: 10 meter
Image Date & Time: 06-12-2018 1629 UTC

Confidence: Medium
Issue Date: 06-13-2018

Region: Gulf of Mexico
Location: 2817'28" N, 8846'35" W
Coverage Area: 1.00 km^2

Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil.
**Image is greater than 24 hours old**
An anomaly was observed in satellite imagery and stretched a total of 3.
00 nautical miles in the North-South direction. The anomaly showed mostly 
good contrast with its background and appeared out of place. Surface winds 
around the time of the image were from the South at 5 knots, which align 
well with the orientation of the anomaly. The anomaly is in the vicinity 
of NRC #1214849 and has been featured in additional MPSRs over the past 
two weeks. Confidence is deemed to be Medium given the lack of a discernible 
point source and the possibility the anomaly could be a natural seep.

Uncertainties:
Full extent of the anomaly is unknown due to cloud cover.
