Uh oh...

As a wise man once said: "Iceberg right ahead!!!"

The MODIS instrument on NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites captured 13 images of the shifting B-15A iceberg between November 9 and January 2, 2005. The Iceberg is also compared to the size of Long Island, New York.
It is an event so large that the best seat in the house is in space: a massive iceberg is on a collision course with a floating glacier near the McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica. NASA satellites have witnessed the 100-mile-long B-15A iceberg moving steadily towards the Drygalski Ice Tongue. Though the iceberg's pace has slowed in recent days, NASA scientists expect a collision to occur no later than January 15, 2005.

I am sure that global warming and the Bush Administration's refusal to sign the Kyoto Protocol are to blame. It will be interesting to see the video and hear the audio of this collision - if and when it occurs.
