Also, my question is if this is a mile down in the ocean, how come it's so bright on this particular feed? I could imagine a light here or there,
but it wouldn't be this bright.
Something's amiss I fear.
Right, Something is amiss??? Come on!!! They are filming it in the same studio they did the moon landing except they filled it with water!! /sarc
I have been working on rigs on and offshore for most of my adult life.
The guy that "googled" those blowouts are nothing. Google some more... those BOP's above, those are baby BOP's. Go see some REAL rigs.
What you are looking at is a "major modified" top kill BOP (Blowout Preventer).
The light is from the submersible. Yes, it would be that bright!! jeez you guys never fail to amaze me.
I give up. Exasperating to say the least.
