Antarctic iceberg break-off captured in NASA images

NASA has released a series of images of an iceberg breaking off Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier.

The satellite pictures, which were taken between November 2013 and April 2014, show an iceberg roughly eight times the size of Manhattan separating from the front of the glacier.
