A polar NASA satellite just happened to catch the creation of a new giant iceberg Monday as it separated from the end of the Petermann Glacier in Greenland, reports Yahoo! News
Scientists first noticed a rift in the glacier back in 2001 but it took until now for the iceberg to completely split from its host, Yahoo! News continues.
The massive iceberg, at 46 square miles, is larger than the size of Manhattan and separated from the Petermann Glacier, one of the largest glaciers in Greenland.
