Megaberg on the move: Massive iceberg is 'on the move' near Antarctica after sitting still for decades

"It is incredibly lucky that the iceberg’s route out of the Weddell Sea sat directly across our planned path, and that we had the right team aboard to take advantage of this opportunity," said Andrew Meijers, chief scientist on the research ship, in a statement.

"We’re fortunate that navigating A23a hasn’t had an impact on the tight timings for our science mission, and it is amazing to see this huge berg in person – it stretches as far as the eye can see," he said.

A23a made worldwide news last week after it moved out of the Weddell Sea sector into the Southern Ocean. It calved from the Filchner Ice Shelf in 1986, before being grounded on the seabed nearby, the British Antarctic Survey said. A23a will now likely be swept along by the Antarctic circumpolar current into "iceberg alley," putting it on a common iceberg trajectory toward the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia.
