Petermania (II)

Today's hi-res true-colour Aqua and Terra satellite images aren't available yet, but...

... the Petermann ice island is visible even on the low-res GOES-East weather satellite images!

It is the white "speck" — remember, the thing is nearly the size of Manhattan — marked with the red crosshairs. At the time of this image (12:45 a.m. Atlantic), it was located about twelve miles off the coast near St. Lewis.

CBC Labrador Morning did a phone interview from the community on Monday with Gary Bolger. St. Lewis may yet have the best terrestrial vantage point for viewing Petermann.
