Uploader comment: On January 25, 2013 the Aqua satellite flew over the South Atlantic Ocean, allowing the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) instrument flying aboard to capture this true-color image of Iceberg C19C adrift in the remote waters. This large, roughly oval iceberg is one section of iceberg C-19, which calved off the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica in May, 2002.
