The Largest Glacier Calving Caught on Film

The piece of the Illulissat Glacier in Western Greenland the size of Manhattan broke off into the ocean on May 8th, 2008 and it was caught on film and I have to say it is truly sublime video to which you can see the enormity of this event and yet at the same time not be able to grasp the size of this event or what it must have been like to witness this in person.  Truly awe inspiring to see such a dramatic occurrence in nature.  This clip is from a full length documentary Chasing Ice, which I have not seen and have heard little of, up to this point.
