This two-minute video by NASA shows a space-based view of the burning Deepwater Horizon oil rig and the horrifying oil spill that has followed. The images--taken using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument--were hand-picked to best showcase the disaster.

The images were put together from their satellites Terra and Aqua. The images begin with the oil rig explosion and run through May 24th.
