Petermania (XXIII): Hi ho, hi ho, it's back to sea we go

After spending another couple of days cloaked by clouds, Petermann re-emerged today northeast of the Grey Islands. It is visible here as the bright red object in false-colour infrared, northeast of Grey Island and Bell Island (not to be confused with Belle Isle).

The ice block made an average of twelve km a day towards the southeast during the time it was concealed by weather. If it were to keep up that rate and heading, it could be in the vicinity of Fogo by the end of the month.
