Oil is leaking from a cargo vessel that sank on August 5 about 25 miles off the coast of India near the port of Mumbai. This radar satellite image taken yesterday (August 8) shows a narrow slick about 12 miles long in the general vicinity of the sinking, based on the news accounts we’ve seen so far. The buildings of Mumbai appear as a dense cluster of bright spots, typical for radar images of built-up areas. Other bright spots offshore are vessels and possibly oil and gas production platforms.
