“It looks very scary. It’s not good. I really feel… not good about that.” That’s what the International Space Station Commander, cosmonaut Oleg Kotov, says about the Gulf’s oil disaster. This is the last satellite image. Update: New image added.

Captured by NASA’s Aqua satellite, the image shows only part of the oil surface, with the Sun shining over. I’ve exaggerated the image contrast so you can clearly see the extend of the damage:
