Petermania (XII): Peekaboo

The Petermann ice island is almost lost in today's fog off the northeastern tip of Newfoundland, and essentially unchanged in its position from 24 hours before.

You can compare the size of the ice to Groais Island to the south, or Belle Isle to the north. Note also the numerous aircraft contrails, from trans-Atlantic flights, running diagonally across the southwestern corner of the image.
