NASA showed how a giant iceberg looks from space. The photographs were taken on September 16 from Landsat 8 satellite, according to NASA’s website.

The photographs show A-68A and A-68B, icebergs, which calved from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in July 2017. The collisions also produced a handful of pieces too small to be named.The estimated size of the berg is 5,800 square feet.

Larsen C is the most Northern of all big Antarctica’s icebergs left. A few scientists are observing its destruction.
