NASA Discovered a Perfectly Rectangular Iceberg In Antarctica
NASA scientists have captured stunning images of an iceberg located in Antarctica that is perfectly shaped as a rectangle
NASA was on an ongoing mission to document changes in polar ice when it discovered the rectangular ice creation. The images have been captured during a flight over the northern Antarctic Peninsula on October 16 while the team was gathering information on changes in the ice heights of numerous glaciers in the area.
“I often see icebergs with relatively straight edges, but I’ve not really seem one before with two corners at such right angles like this one. I was actually more interested in capturing the Delaware-sized A68 iceberg next to it we were about to fly over but thought this one was visually interesting and fairly photogenic, so on a lark, I just took a couple photos,” Jeremy Harbeck, senior support scientist said in a NASA press release
A Landsat 8 satellite captured an image in which the northern Antarctic Peninsula can be seen, as well as the rectangular iceberg.
