Taken from the NASA website, the silver cloud-like blob in the lower right of the picture is a shot of the insatiable oil spill currently ruining the Gulf of Mexico.  The spill caused by the 4/20 The Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion is spewing out 42,000 gallons a day. Oil is expected to hit land on May 1st, and will most likely cause havoc on the delicate ecosystem of the Delta National Wildlife Refuge. On a stranger note, BP is purportedly using underwater robots to decrease and stop the oil flow.
