Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency (ESA) shows a massive iceberg moving toward the west coast of Greenland.

According to the ESA, the ten-million-ton iceberg is breaking up as it approaches the small village of Innaarsuit. The calving could potentially cause large waves capable of wiping out parts of the village, and some residents have been evacuated as a precaution.

The image was captured by Sentinel-2A on July 9, 2018.
