The ice island is still moving very slowly, having made just 12 kilometres since its last satellite appearance on Saturday. However, its encounter with Tooker Bank has helped re-direct it towards the coast of Newfoundland. At the time of this image, it was abut 23 km due east of Quirpon Island, its closest approach to a populated area since its close encounter with St. Lewis last week.
