A few days ago we posted imagery from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Today, NASA has released new imagery that show the spill’s approach toward the Louisiana coastline.
Here is the updated KML file (with both images included), or you can view the high-res JPG (via NASA).
UPDATE: Virgil Zetterlind at EarthNC has created an animation of the spill. You can view it here or read more about it here.
UPDATE #2: You can now access the latest imagery directly within Google Earth. Turn on the “Places of Interest” layer and click the red icon that appears in the Gulf of Mexico.
