UPDATE –

JANUARY 2, 2021 – Short video from earlier today showing A68a and friends. South Sandwich islands visible to the far east.

JANUARY 1, 2021 – As can be seen in the latest image above, the giant iceberg continues to crumble into smaller ‘bergs as it heads east. Still too far away from VP8/SS to determine if direct or close “hit” will occur. Larger image here.

DECEMBER 28, 2020 – Remember we recently kept an eye on South Georgia with regards massive iceberg A68a? Well, as you may know those islands missed out on a direct hit from the ‘berg (although some grounding on the seabed nearby did happen). Eventually A68a started to break up and smaller icebergs became evident, each being given a new identifier such as A68e, A68d, A68f etc. 

On November 15, we mentioned that A68a may actually miss South Georgia and might head further south and east towards the South Sandwich islands. Check the tweets below.

So, now all eyes on South Sandwich to see if the smaller A68a grounds there.
