Abstract

NASA scientist Jeremy Harbeck was on a surveying flight over the Antarctic Peninsula earlier this month when he spotted an iceberg that looked like no other. It was almost perfectly rectangular, with square sides and a flat top that made it look more human-made than natural. "I thought this rectangular iceberg was visually interesting and fairly photogenic so, on a lark, I just took a couple photos," Harbeck said. These photos have since been shared around the globe.
