A few weeks ago, a small town in Newfoundland said hello to an unexpected visitor who now refuses to leave–not that anyone’s complaining. Why you might ask? Well, the visitor is actually a massive iceberg.
Yes, the lone berg
sits floats in such stark contrast to the tiny town of Ferryland (which had a population of less than 500 people back in 2011), that an usual number of people from out of town are flocking to see it.

Ferryland Mayor Adrian Kavanagh said there’s a steady stream of people coming in to take pictures.
“It’s like a big white building out there floating in the ocean,” he said to CTV News. “It’s a bit close to the land so they [people] can get pretty good pictures of it.”

Heck, it’s even made world news.

And, it’s no wonder. Look at how tiny that helicopter looks compared to the iceberg (below).

Which gets you wondering, if that’s how big it is at the top…how massive is it really below the water?
