Satellite Source: Landsat 7
Mode: Multispectral
Resolution: 30 meter
Image Date & Time: 06-29-2018 1644 UTC

Confidence: Medium-High
Issue Date: 06-29-2018

Region: Gulf of Mexico
Location: 2817'16" N, 9304'39" W
Coverage Area: 0.20 km^2

Remarks:
Possible oil was observed in satellite imagery. This anomaly is unconfirmed 
as oil. The anomaly appeared white/silver in sunglint and had jagged edging 
as well as an anomalous sharp turn. It extended about 0.75 NM along its 
entire length and was 0.1 NM wide at its widest point. However, there 
was no apparent point source in the vicinity. Given the above factors 
we have MEDIUM-HIGH confidence in this assessment.

Uncertainties:
This anomaly could be biogenic material or a natural oil seep.
