How many square miles did the oil spill cover at its largest?

    Satellite images show that the visible oil slick on the surface of the ocean covered 817 square miles at it’s peak.  The slick reached as far away as 50 miles from the point of origin.  On top of the 817 miles of oil coverage, there was also an additional 80 miles “kill zone” where no sea life was able to survive because of the shear volume of oil in the water.
