Rectangular icebergs in Antarctica

Rate this post

Operation IceBridge is National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) longest-running aerial survey of polar ice to assess changes in the ice height of glaciers.

On October 10, 2018, NASA began a 5-week-long IceBridge deployment. The flight originated from Punta Arenas, Chile, and is scheduled to conclude on Nov. 18.

As recounted on, on Oct. 16, 2018, the IceBridge aerial survey flew over the northern Antarctic Peninsula. IceBridge senior support scientist Jeremy Harbeck spotted two sharp-angled rectangular icebergs floating among sea ice just off of the Larsen C ice shelf.

The rectangular icebergs appeared to be freshly carved from Larsen C, which in July 2017 released the massive A68 iceberg, a chunk of ice about the size of the state of Delaware.

Harbeck said:

“I thought it was pretty interesting; I often see icebergs with relatively straight edges, but I’ve not really seen one before with two corners at such right angles like this one had. I was actually more interested in capturing the A68 iceberg that we were about to fly over, but I thought this rectangular iceberg was visually interesting and fairly photogenic, so on a lark, I just took a couple photos.”

Here’s a closer-up image of the larger rectangular iceberg, showing the iceberg’s sharp angles and precision-cut edges.

How do natural icebergs get to be rectangular in shape, with sharp angles?

    There’s no way folks. Dr. E is right again!

  2. I was surprised they released the photo, as it’s bound to raise suspicions due to its extreme singular appearance.

  3. Someone has been up there doing some carving, maybe to speed up some surface oil exploration?

  4. Yes, nature makes no right angles in anything.
    An ex naval officer tells what he saw in Antarctica when he was stationed there.

    • Lana . . . Wow! That is quite some tape. I have no doubt that there is much that goes on in our country that is kept secret from the American people.

    • I have known several people when I worked for the Navy who have “wintered over” on “The Ice”. From what they tell me it is indeed strange.

      I have never understood why they have all the secrecy and by what authority they can decide to place areas “off limits” to people. No one supposedly “owns” this so how do they control it?

      I am skeptical of some of the tales and imagine that a lot of them are due to the fact that certain areas are restricted. That is very convenient for people who I don’t trust to begin with.

  5. Let’s ask Al Gore if he knows about it. Hey Al, have you been down under? Hahahaaaaa!!!

    • I’m sorry, Alma, but Gore has been down under for so long that he’s forgotten to come up for air!

    • Well Gore may not know about it, but there are a slew of politicians and religious leaders who have made a trip down there in the last couple years, and I don’t think they re going down to look at the penguins either. Check the list of people who have been down there…

      • Lana, what always strikes me is that it is apparent we are not being told all there is to know about this. There is a group, managed by the UN, that “controls” Antarctica. Ostensibly, this is to ensure “peace” and preserve its nature, untrammeled.

        There are areas that are “whited out” on satellite images. Why? There are many pictures of structures that show activity where activity is not supposed to be happening.

        I don’t know what to think about Adm. Bird or our astronaut. The royals are extremely suspect. Why on Earth would you take wounded veterans on a slog like that?

        I have read quite a bit from various people on this topic. I have a hard time with the whole “hollow Earth” thing or the story of Bird flying into the Earth. On the other hand, I have no way to prove it isn’t true, either.

        Frankly, I find the whole lack of interest there unusual. There are certainly minerals and other scientific evidence worthy of discovery. One does not simply go there. I understand one needs “permission”. Just how they enforce that is a mystery.

        • I’m sure you were asking rhetorical questions here, and just as well because I surely don’t know anything more than the next person. All I can say is that after looking into all sorts of this type of off the wall phenomena and goings on for quite some time, is that I believe that there is a much bigger picture to the history and life on this planet than the ” authorities” would have us believe or want us to know about because it would change the way we see ourselves and the world, and therefore most likely jeopardize their control. After all they are masters of creating narratives aren’t they, and they can’t let go of the story that they have already created, or there might just possibly be a cascade effect that would be so swift and profound they could do nothing about it. I sure get tired of the scheming and secrecy.

          • How many other examples do we have of them willingly cooperating? That can only mean one thing. Whatever it is, it isn’t good for us.

            Your idea is the best I’ve heard yet. I simply don’t know. I know from what I read that it is very controlled. I know this from talking with people who have been there as well.

            Even more oddly, we never hear anything about this. The last thing I remember reading about it was the Russian attempt to drill holes into a deep lake.

            It may also be useful to know that all of these alphabet soup agencies are not what they claim themselves to be. If the Government spends money on it, it is for “their” purposes, not ours.

            So there are probably hundreds of unusual theories out there about this and other unseen things. I even have a few of my own although I don’t know that they are developed to a stage where I’d call them “theories” yet.

            One thing I’ve noticed, and I encourage others to do, is to notice things in general. Look up from that cell phone and look around. Listen and look. I’ve seen some VERY strange things on my travels.

            So, even though I want to be “level headed”, and not succumb to wild theories, I know there are people out there who are involved in some very suspicious things. Anything hidden is probably something we shouldn’t be doing.

  6. I hate to be the odd man out here, but rectangular ice formations are possible, although rare: I’ve seen them on frozen ponds—although I never saw more than one right-angled corner on one.
    According to the FDA, ice is a food. Therefore, it follows, that Antarctica is the world’s largest contiguous food source!

    • If the FDA wishes us to believe that ice is a food source, I’d like to know how they account for the zero calories in it? Or are we supposed to “believe” that ice is a unique condiment? If so, that will show us exactly how far the mighty FDA has fallen, as Administration after Administration continues to gut it of its best people. Not much is left now, except as a “rubber stamp” agency.

      • Anyone who thinks that ice is food should be locked in a room with only ice for their sustenance. That should prove that theory, one way or another, rather quickly.

        • Well, in truth (depending on one’s fat stores) it takes a pretty long time to perish from starvation. Water and sleep are key for short term survival.

  7. The only way you would have something like this is if it were formed in a mold. Otherwise, someone would have to cut those edges. That’s pretty unlikely unless they have something I don’t know about.

  8. Directed Energy Weapon. Space LASER. See recent fires in Northern California and Greece. The ice is not receding, it is advancing, but since our beloved overlords need our money, they are simulating global warming to remove dollars from your pockets by breaking up the ice with LASERs and selling the idea that it is melting.

  9. Personally, I have no idea.
    I consider it very abnormal for ‘mother nature’ to produce such a phenomenon.
    If it is in fact ‘man-made’ it is of little consequence.
    If it is ‘alien’ made….what are we to do about it??

    Interesting?? Yes
    Thought provoking? Yes
    Such things pique my interest while proving my ignorance of what may be.
    Speculation is free but all too often…futile.

    • That’s close to my thoughts. I speculated that some sort of man made rectangular enclosure broke free and became entrapped in thinner ice somehow. I have not idea what that could have been. I can’t imagine something simply forming naturally.

      There are relics from decades of projects simply left there. Maybe one of those separated with the ice floes and formed this. Over the years there have been efforts to take away residue that has been there a long time.

      Even with the extreme cold, it is mysterious that more work isn’t done there. There are very strict controls in place there but I can’t imagine that everybody obeys them.

  10. After having researched Antarctica, the simple fact is that it ALWAYS leads to the Flat Earth Biblical model.

    For the RECORD, I don’t believe in the Flat Earth concept. HOWEVER, the Flat Earthers have made excellent points, especially: NASA (the acronym itself is the Hebrew word for “deception” or liar”, whichever, I’m not sure, is in fact a liar. Just looking at their badges, the ISS, and other stuff involving them, specifically the moon “landings” are fake.

    Thus, the flat earth movement appears to be some kind of misinfo net and stop sign to ward off research into Antarctica, because immediately chilling information begins to surface. Yes, that was a pun. I like puns, ok?

    Ahem… point being, there is definitely something up with all this. The activity down there, especially military activity, is bizarre and deeply rooted in the secret societies and upper echelons of public political power.

    My take on it is that the “secret” diary of Admiral Richard Byrd is true, and that he was led to a “realm” wherein he was introduced and had an audience with Satan himself, and who began the “alien” deception from him. There was a REASON Why Byrd’s only son died for no apparent reason in a warehouse:

    Bizarre, is what I say, at the VERY least. But there’s more than enough reason to believe something wicked dwells in that hellish environment. And we the public are not supposed to care or know.

  11. Does it matter what shape it is in? Japan will come along and tow it so it can bottle it as “rectangular iceberg water.” And, people will buy it as a health food for $20 or more a 32 oz (or less….) bottle. Done Deal: cure cancer and ADHD and baldness and all the rest. 🙂 ROFLMAO.
