If anybody ever thought staring at ice was boring, they need just look at this video of a 200-foot chunk of ice breaking off of Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm Fjord in Alaska to realize that ice can certainly perk up a tourist's day.


I don't know what to think - I'm kind of awestruck by the visual
I searched "glacier" but I didn't see this posted


Gives a great perspective to the term "fragile earth".


Here's hoping the person hit with the ice wasn't hurt badly ♥

So weird! I just watched these videos about 10 minutes ago and now it's posted


This looks like an amazing sight to be apart of but after reading the lady shattering her femur, I'll just enjoy the view from here.

I was actually looking for a video that another ats member mentioned from back in the 50's or 60's "where a massive "calving" created such a devastating wave that the surrounding land was purty much wiped clean, even way high up on the mountains " in Alaska and it was caught on video but this is cool too


Edit to add: Hope the lady is ok and recovering well, see the video was posted monday which means she's still in pain...Get well woman!!

Talk about getting a little too close for comfort. Poor woman sounded like she was in a lot of pain.

You guys ever seen this? Certifiably nuts

Definitely sending my best thoughts for the woman who was hit ♥

Meanwhile, now that you mention this... someone was predicting a tsunami for tomorrow...
no kidding

I don't usually buy into "predictions", and I'm not really sure if this calving was big enough to cause a 35 foot tsunami, but wouldn't that be a really interesting coincidence....

wrong area too but.. still

A couldn't help but notice the beautiful purity of the ice and snow made by nature, marred by an ugly puff of black exhaust from the man made vessel.

Our contribution to our planet is quite clear in the video and perhaps the calving of the ice can be answered by that one shot.



Thanks for the vid.

I never heard of the man and thats a pretty detailed prediction, i dont believe in predictions either but august 11th rang a bell for some reason, maybe the dates and numbers are starting to get to me seeing them on ats all the time


And im still looking for that video where the calving in alaska wiped the surrounding land, this "calving" is all new to me so im learning while looking around but what are the chances of generating a huge tsunami through this?
