This time-lapse video shows the calving of an ice island from
Greenland's Petermann Glacier and the drifting of the ice down the
fjord and southward through Nares Strait. The images were captured
between July 9 and September 13, 2012, by NASA's Terra and Aqua
earth-observing satellites. This is the second time in three years that
a city-sized hunk of ice has ripped off from the glacier.
