The Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill has now gone full circle, and is now migrating through towards the Mexican Riviera. Current location of large spill branch along the coast of South America and drifting around the Yucatan Peninsula

I'm curious to find out how the Carribean Islands, Florida Keys, Virgin Islands, Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Republic... St. Tomas, Bahamas - are all doing regards this catastrophy? anyone get any reports from these locations?

i have a canadian friend who just returned from cuba two weeks ago.

although i doubt he was looking, when i asked, he said no one even seemed aware of the spill at all.

he spent a good deal of time with 'locals', as well as the requisite stay in the luxury resorts.

thats my unsubstantiated contribution to the topic.

edited to add: is that picture accurate?

I think I just answered part of my own question lol...

Here is what appears to be satellite imagery of the Large hole that was claimed to exist. oil is certainly gushing heavily from this location, which IS NOT where Horrison is!

I've drafted questions in red pertaining to another anomalous occurrance revealed in these images..

Are those Methane blowouts comming up from the ocean floor!?

And here are the Keys... *SIGH* Those Keys were some of the most beautiful places on Earth... =

Thanks for sharing these! S&F I wish we had radar satellite expert to help with telling us what we are seeing in these images.

I will reply to this thread just to express the utter awe I am in, that first image should dispell any myths about the 'spill' not being all that bad, jesus... it spans from Florida to Texas and now to Mexico and into the Atlantic Ocean.
The second image you said might have been in regards to the second leak they are said to be covering up, do you know what the location is of that image, could it be an island or something there?

That image is located roughly 70 miles off the Western Coast of Florida. About halfway up the peninsula, and not fully towards the panhandle, as Cuba can be seen in these images.

It appears that a rift has opened up comming due west and goes right into the coast of Florida.

I've compared images of that region for both july 8th and july 10th. the fan of whitish materials is seen in both images!!!

That has to be a rent in the seafloor at roughly 45 degrees in angle. Methane is rupturing out from it at around 40,000 psi, and as can be seen, pushing a large dark cloud of black oil in fron of it's stream!

Here are the two pictures I compared...

July 08, 2010 CSTARS Satellite Feed:

Notice the limited amount of oil and the clarity of the water? notice the white frothy section just to the left of what has been exposed as the massive hole in the seafloor?


July 10, 2010 CSTARS Satelite Feed:


  1. Same white frothy pattern still exists in same location, This means that there is a super massive Methane leake that is leaking it's supersonic methane jet at 40 to 60,000 PSI right towards the state of Florida.
  2. Observe the amount of black oil that is being pushed out ahead of this jet towards the coast of Florida!
  3. Observe the other, almost perfectly round formations of white frothy eruptions occurring along what appears to be a rift that has developed
  4. Observe the absolutely circular eruption of methane occurring just east of the original whaite frothy structure ( that aint no jpeg anomaly )
  5. In just TWO DAYS, observe how black the waters in the newer photograph are, which appear to be billowing out from that secondary methane eruption!

I don't know for sure this is what I'm realy seeing here, however it sure does look real enough to me!

reply to post by Morpheas

Ditto to Morpheas.............Nothing against the OP and his thread........but these images really need to be explained by someone who knows "sat imagery"........Unless the OP has knowledge in this area.......

S&F OP for bringing this out........lets see if Dr. somebody can gives us an explaination.....

S&F for you OP...

So far I think this could possibly be one if not the most
informative information available....definitely looking forward
to having someone explain in further detail.
Thanks for Sharing!

but how am i supposed to know these images are even legit?

please excuse me for not posting that info!! Silly me...

the imagery is from the CSTARS Satellite GIS and Logistics Website via the University of Miami

I hope this helps!

Here are two more images taken today by CSTARS revealing the extent the oil is affecting Mexico.

It has reached Cancun now!

BP better gear up for a Mexican lawsuit now too!!

I'm sad to see this, but we all knew it was just a matter of time, didn't we?
Next Stop: Central America.

BP can set up an office on coastal Mexico, and start processing the law suits and claims.

Here's CSTARS Imagery for Cuba:



Looks Like BP better get ready to hear from Cuba....

BP is fookt lmao !!

This image also reveals heavy concentrations of oil flowing northwards on the EASTERN coast off of Florida - There goes the Atlantic Coast !!!

I live near the Gulf of Mexico (mexican side), I'll see if I can get to Matamoros soon to see if there's anything there... I hope not..

It's been a few days now since your initial post. Would it be possible for you to post some pics of the same regions as they appear today (20 July) and compare them to the initial images?

I tried looking myself using the link you provided in another post, but i'm just not computer savvy enough to figure out what i'm doing.

Thank you.

I am on the Panhandle of Florida Coast, and I can tell you that all those black areas on that black and white photo are not oil. There is some oil in Pensacola, very little sporadically in Destin, and absolutely zero in the Keys, Caribean, or Cuba.

Also, the white frothy stuff is regularly seen in the Gulf. It may be an intersection of currents, it may be a bacteria or algae, it may be high winds whipping up a froth, but it is not "Methane Bubbling."

Methane associated with this leak is a very serious concern, and it is out there, but it is NOT bubbling to the surface, and it is not shooting out of the sea floor hundreds of miles from the Leak.

These images do not help a layman in any way. Even a very experienced satellite image reader would have a difficult time discerning light oil sheen from regular water. It is easy to see the crude, but almost impossible to see the light sheen.

Methane is IMPOSSIBLE to see from satellite imagery. Even if it were bubbling at the sea floor, it would not be bubbling at the surface. It would disperse through the currents and it would dissolve into the water and it would be released across a wide area silently and invisibly.
