The giant ice island is off the coast of my native Labrador.

Here is a story about it with some amazing photos.

Here is another story about it, with some amazing satellite images - posted by me on the day the ice island calved, a day before the news media got hold of the story -



The last remnant of that calving - about 50 km2 of it - is now midway between the sides of Petermann Fjord as it moves out into Nares Strait.  Watch out for more spectacular calving any time soon - it just needs a strong enough wind down the fjord.
