The filmmakers of “Chasing Ice” got the show of a lifetime, when they witnessed the largest glacier calving to ever be recorded. For 75 minutes, Adam LeWinter and Jeff Orlowski watched the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland crumble – which is an extraordinary sight to say the least. Get ready, because this video is sure to take your breath away.
It’s hard to imagine seeing a glacier break-up in person, especially one of such a massive size. On the Exposure Labs YouTube channel, they describe the glacier as retreating 1 mile across and 3 miles wide.
