Nasa recently took this photo of a rectangular size iceberg floating off the Antarctic ice shelf. But alien conspiracy fans will be disappointed to learn that it's a naturally occurring phenomenon.

While an intriguing image for the many of us who don't take aerial surveys of the changing, cracking, and melting Antarctic coast, these "tabular" icebergs are a common sight for scientists working in Antarctica. "We get two types of icebergs", she said.

NASA also posted an image of another geometric iceberg, but in the shape of a triangle.

It's described as a "tabular iceberg" - with steep sides and a flat top, typically formed by "snapping off" from an ice shelf, experts say. "If you look at the recent icebergs that calved of iceberg A-68 (near Larsen C), you will see that many of them have pretty "rectangularish" shapes".

An iceberg recently spotted by NASA scientists looks like it was carefully cut into a flawless rectangle, and it's getting a lot of attention because of those unexpected angles and straight lines.

The angular berg is called a tabular iceberg.

The edges are still pointed, and have not yet been worn down by the ocean waves.

Just past the rectangular iceberg, which is visible from behind the outboard engine, IceBridge saw another relatively rectangular iceberg.

The tabular iceberg, as it's called, is believed to have broken off from the Larsen C ice shelf, which calved a berg the size of DE a year ago.

Tabular icebergs are the remnants of calving events, where a large strip of ice breaks free from an ice shelf.

That image also captures the massive A68 iceberg in the distance. The berg is in the shape of an nearly flawless rectangle.

Sea ice comes in many types and forms, depending on the stage of development and the meteorological, atmospheric, and other physical conditions.

"The Larsen C is a large ice shelf".

It studies yearly changes in thickness of sea ice, glaciers and ice sheets.
