Wow! Iceberg larger than London breaks off Antarctica (photos)

A giant iceberg almost the size of London has broken off the Brunt Ice Shelf in western Antarctica on Sunday (Jan. 22) after years of cracking. 

The shelf calved during the spring tide, the regular swelling of the ocean that coincides with full and new moons, according to a statement (opens in new tab) from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), which reported the iceberg’s separation from the shelf.
