Iceberg 07 - Hole Close Up by fuguestock Iceberg 07 - Hole Close Up by fuguestock
Photo by Bob Garlant. Tierra del Fuego. I have no idea what makes an iceberg develop a perfectly round hole. I like to think a supervillain has been testing laser beams in their secret antarctic base.

EDIT: Mystery of the hole solved by wikipedia. It's called a Moulin, and it's where a channel of water forms along a fissure in the glacier en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moulin_(…

EDIT 2: Waaa! A Daily Deviation!? Massive thanks to EveLivesey for nominating the photo and Elandria for featuring it! :hug:

So that "slice" used to be an entire ice plain with an underground river in that hole? What happened to the rest of it?

why the ice is blue?

In a glacier ice is under high pressure and it forms compact blue crystals. Polar icebergs are mostly frozen sea water and with loose, relatively 'fluffy' crystals, so they look white

Awesome picture - but I don't know if this would really be a Moulin considering the wiki article says they're "vertical to nearly vertical".  This is almost horizontal.  I vote death ray!

I swear that looks like a sleeping horse.  Even with the hole there and stuff.  I totally thought it had to be a carving, from the thumb, but it is a whole iceberg!  Just amazing!!

Dude. that wikipedia post was put there by a top secret organization to steer attention away from the discovery of their death ray. A top scientist working for them put that there in high detail to make it sound legit.... DO NOT FALL FOR IT:X
