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.

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.
