UPDATE – Edging ever closer to South Georgia, but will it take a different track soon?

NOVEMBER 15, 2020 – So it’s not really DX news, but still something for the DXer to keep an eye on especially as VP8/SG is always nice to contact. I mean, who could forget about VP8SGI for example?
It’s now approx. 320 km away from South Georgia. The video below shows the movement of the iceberg over the last month. At the last minute it may avoid South Georgia, but for the moment I guess it’s something to watch unfold.
PS: Might it head towards South Sandwich instead?
It looks like it may hit SGI but it needs sustained strong SW wind and of course help from currents. But what about S. Sandwich islands? it's straight downwind and nothing in between to stop the berg, never underestimate the roaring 40s @CopernicusEU@BBCAmos @NASAEarth https://t.co/KAEh6E51u1 pic.twitter.com/zeA1ehXIK9
