Ice Island Approaching Labrador

ice_island.jpgThis NASA Earth Observatory image shows the ice island that calved off the Petermann Glacier in northwestern Greenland on August 5, 2010. It’s a beautiful sight many people look forward to this time of year… Glistening white icebergs, stretching from the ocean to the sky. These giants gently float south from the Arctic, making appearances along the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. If you’re able to view them, you may be in for a treat, and this year..a much bigger treat… It’s called an ice island. Dan Frampton is the Superintendent of Ice Operations with the Canadian Coast Guard.
