Largest Glacier Calving Ever Filmed [VIDEO]
I got this from my friend and didn’t think much of it until I actually watched it! When the sheer size of the event sinks into your brain…it is absolutely AMAZING! Take a few minutes and watch this video. Icebergs the size of Manhattan…really!On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water.
