    A German research vessel exploring East Antarctica found itself at the right place at the right time last month when a massive iceberg broke off from the frozen continent.

    The calving of the iceberg, dubbed A74, made headlines across the globe in late February when it broke off from the Brunt Ice Shelf. With an area of nearly 500 square miles, the iceberg is about the size of Los Angeles.

    The Alfred Wegener Institute’s R/V Polarstern happened to be exploring nearby in the Weddell Sea region when the calving occurred and immediately headed for the area.
