Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows the movement of a massive iceberg that broke away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula last July.

After the dramatic calving event, Iceberg A-68 broke into two distinct masses that are now moving at very different speeds. 

The image was captured by Joshua Stevens using Landsat data from the U.S. Geological Survey.
