Petermania (XV): Eppur si muove

It's back to Terra's false-colour infrared imagery today, to help tease Petermann out from among the clouds... and back to movement. The Petermann Ice Island drifted about eight kilometres in the past 24 hours, and, what's more, it drifted to the southwest, bringing it closer still to the coast of Newfoundland. Its coast now lies just eleven kilometres from the mouth of Gunner's Cove.

If you are travelling the Northern Peninsula, or to or from Labrador via the Straits ferry, it's probably well worth the detour:
