The original photo of the geometric iceberg, which triggered a tremendous global response. A photo of the iceberg (seen at right) was widely shared after it was posted on social media. Yes, it's that huge-the expanse along the horizon line is a free-floating iceberg measuring about 100 kilometers (60 miles) in length and about 30 kilometers (18 miles) wide.Here are some other photos of tabular icebergs, many of which were produced by the Larsen C ice shelf during the A68 calving event.Tabular icebergs seen in the vicinity of iceberg A68. The team will continue their work until November 18th, so perhaps we have a few more interesting icebergs to look forward to over the coming weeks. More: - NASA ICE (@NASA_ICE) October 23, 2018 'I thought it was pretty interesting, ' Jeremy Harbeck, senior scientist with the IceBridge mission that was flying over Antarctica at the time, explains. Wow, it's been unbelievable to see what a splash our photo of a tabular Antarctic iceberg, by #IceBridge's Jeremy Harbeck, has made.

Interestingly, Harbeck spotted a second rectangular iceberg during the same 16 October 2018 flyby.

Bigger picture: "The iceberg's sharp angles and flat surface indicate that it probably recently calved from the ice shelf", according to a statement from NASA.

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

Health experts: Get your flu shot now

Harry Maguire's towering header forced a good save from Leno and Leicester's pressure reaped a tangible reward in the 31st minute. We had the opportunity to score goals, we looked very risky going forward. "He can make us look very risky going forward".

Hawaiian island ‘vanishes in storm’ amid rising sea levels
Scientists from the University of Hawaii confirmed its disappearance after analysing satellite images of the surrounding area. He said that he felt that there would be just one more shrink for this planet to end.

The image also captures A68 in the distance. "And then you have what are called 'tabular icebergs'".

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.

The photos were taken as part of Operation IceBridge, an ongoing NASA mission to document changes in polar ice. 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 18 November.
