Ice, Ice Baby: Second Strange Rectangular Iceberg Spotted in Antarctica

It's not a ideal rectangle, but it's still a highly angular quadrilateral.An angled view of the geometric iceberg.Image: NASA/Operation IceBridgeThese photos were captured by IceBridge senior support scientist Jeremy Harbeck, who spotted the tabular iceberg near the Larsen C ice shelf. During the year 2017 in July, Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf said to have been released this enormous A68 iceberg, and during the investigation of that, this structure was spotted.

The new image, which was shared by NASA on Tuesday, shows the famous sharp-cornered iceberg appearing by the engine of Harbeck's plan as its twin (let's call her tabular B) takes center stage.

IceBridge senior support scientist Jeremy Harbeck pictured the two icebergs together on the airborne survey of the Earth's polar ice on October 16.

"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". This particular iceberg has also drawn the attention to the work NASA does in monitoring the changes in the planet's ice.

In the latest development, NASA has said to have spotted a rectangular iceberg during the operation IceBridge.

The second iceberg is slightly less rectangular than the first, but has noticeably straight edges and corners. Photo photographed from onboard the IceBridge mission, which specializiruetsya on monitoring changes in polar ice.

Other icebergs and the massive A68 berg can been seen too.

The flight originated from Punta Arenas, Chile, as part of a five-week-long IceBridge deployment, which began October 10 and is scheduled to conclude November 18. It's now in the midst of a five-week project to chart icebergs in the Northern Antarctic Peninsula, a mission that's scheduled to conclude on November 18.
