Tanker Shipwreck. The linear anomaly extended approximately 0.90 nm N-
S and 0.04 nm in width . The anomaly was dark and distinguishable from 
natural phenomena in the vicinity. The orientation of the anomaly aligned 
well with winds at the time of the image which were coming from the north 
at about 10-15 kts.

Uncertainties:
There are no uncertainties.
