Huge Blob of Arctic Goo

A mysterious mass of black goo has been observed oozing through the Chucki sea off the coast of Alaska. It was first observed neat Wainwright and moved toward Barrow, where samples were collected for testing.
Nobody knows for sure what the gunk is, but Petty Officer 1st Class Terry Hasenauer says the Coast Guard is sure what it is not.

"It's certainly biological," Hasenauer said. "It's definitely not an oil product of any kind. It has no characteristics of an oil, or a hazardous substance, for that matter.

"It's definitely, by the smell and the makeup of it, it's some sort of naturally occurring organic or otherwise marine organism."

No one in the area remembers ever seeing anything like the sea blob before. -via reddit

Update: The tests are back. The blob has been identified as algae.
