Greenland Giant Iceberg Seen From Space

There is a Village in Greenland that is facing down some big ocean riding trouble. It’s a 300-foot-high iceberg that may weigh in at nearly 10 million tonnes. It has been floating outside the town for a while, long enough that a time-lapse video was able to be captured, shared, and go viral on social media.

While the images in the video are impressive, it wasn’t until the European Space Agency released new images showing that the iceberg is visible from space; do you get a true idea of the scope of the problem.

Now KNR, Greenland’s broadcaster, reported that the berg had moved away from the harbour over the weekend. Still, dozens of villagers had been evacuated due to concerns about waves large enough to wash away buildings. The satellite image also shows other large sized icebergs in the region. ‚Äč
