Cool iceberg action close up

Man captures rare close-up footage of an iceberg collapsing

Capturing an iceberg collapsing or calving is a rare sight, and this couple filming off Labrador, Canada, picked up their camcorder just in time to catch the dramatic event. The pair and their dog are clearly excited about what they’ve just witnessed, but are soon chased away by a rush of smashed up ice that starts floating towards them. For an in-depth look at how icebergs are formed check out issue five of How It Works, which goes on sale on 25 February. By the way, when you watch this video just try not to imagine Kermit the Frog is behind the camera. You’ll see what we mean.
