The pictures of the fruit juice car carrier MT ‘Orange Sun’ were taken on the afternoon of July 18, 2017 from the 30th floor of One World Financial Center. Quality of images is bearable as the shooting was taken place behind glass windows (with reflections, etc). The tanker followed an unusual route first steaming very slowly upstream in the Upper New York Harbor and Hudson River, and then making a complete turn by the North Cove Marina and the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) (now part of the CME). Based on satellite data, the tanker proceeded to New Jersey to dock.
