Deimos-1 captured Antarctica’s Larsen C ice shelf and the trillion-ton iceberg calved last week, A68, July 14 and July 18.

As an article published in BBC about this topic indicates, “it is not easy getting pictures of the Antarctic at this time of year because of the long winter nights and because of cloud cover.” The satellites acquiring imagery from the berg had been relying on radar or on infrared sensors to pierce those difficulties, but Deimos-1 managed to picture it twice since it broke away from Antarctica on July 12.
