An iceberg, which is approximately six times the size of New York City, broke off of the ice shelf in Antarctica. Hence creating a lone iceberg which is known as the largest iceberg in the world. Named A-76, the iceberg is about 1,668 square miles in size. Thankfully, geologists and scientists say that this event is not a result of climate change and this iceberg will not increase the ocean levels since it was already floating on water.
