NASA spots not one but two rectangular icebergs in Antarctica

NASA's statement also mentioned that it is the same ice sheet from which an ice chunk, the size of DE, had separated in July 2017.

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

NASA's flying research laboratory carried the scientists around Antarctica.

"I was actually more interested in capturing the A68 iceberg that we were about to fly over, but I thought this rectangular iceberg was visually interesting and fairly photogenic, so on a lark, I just took a couple photos", Harbeck said. Harbeck and his colleagues were investigating this massive structure when the geometric shape was spotted.

On Tuesday, it emerged that Mr Harbeck had spotted two rectangular icebergs on the same flyover.

The scientist who all are involved in this operation has now released the original photo of that rare rectangular iceberg which was taken in the last week. Image: NASA/Jeremy HarbeckInterestingly, Harbeck spotted a second rectangular iceberg during the same October 16, 2018 flyby.

For Pakistan , they'll have fewer selection considerations to make ahead of the second T20I at Dubai on Friday if any at all. It did not stop there as Australia slipped to 22 for 6 in the sixth over and the Abu Dhabi crowd went insane .

When the IceBridge scientists reveal the new photos of this, it has shown that the iceberg's true shape and form that it came to know that this is not the flawless rectangular.

Tabular icebergs crack off the edges of ice shelves.

We will remind, what exactly from the glacier Larsen C in July, broke off a giant iceberg the size of the A68 with the Chernivtsi oblast. These objects are remnants of the calving event that produced A68.

NASA scientists with the Operation IceBridge have released one more photo this week, and it is weird.

A Landsat 8 satellite image shows part of the northern Antarctic Peninsula, with an arrow pointing to the rectangular iceberg. There's still plenty of time left in the project, so hopefully the scientists will uncover more Antarctic anomalies.
