Image Caption: Portions of Oman, The United Arab Emirates and Iran are seen at the Strait of Hormuz (26.0N, 56.0E) in this view. A prominent oil slick from a ship flushing its tanks can be seen south of the strait. Sunglint in the Gulf of Oman, south of the strait, accentuates the complex currents and oil slicks, seen as dark toned blue streaks on the surface.
