The coast guard makes daily trips into the gulf to see how the oil is moving. It's hard to see the oil resting on Louisiana's shore 5,000 feet in the air, but fly 50 miles into the Gulf and the oil stretches into the horizon.
Brown and red rivers of oil carving a path in the ocean...the result of oil being leaked into the water for 6 weeks now.
From a bird's eye view 2,000 feet above the heart of the oil spill-- right where the Deepwater Horizon Sank-- you'll see dozens of ships working.
This is just a typical day out in the gulf now-- thousands of people working to clean up the oil that just can't seem to be stopped.
