Nasa shares stunning image of perfectly rectangle iceberg in Antarctica

We tend to think of icebergs as jagged and pointy, with the bulk beneath the surface, and with a penchant for ruining DiCaprio romances.

However, according to NASA, there's a simpler scientific reason why the iceberg appears to be a flawless rectangle.

Based on its relatively smooth edges and pristine condition, this berg likely only calved very recently, according to NASA.

The discovery was made as part of Operation IceBridge, the largest ever aerial survey of the planet's ice around Greenland and in Antartica.

"We get two types of icebergs: We get the type that everyone can envision in their head that sank the Titanic, and they look like prisms or triangles at the surface and you know they have a insane subsurface".

NASA said, 'A tabular iceberg can be seen on the right, floating among sea ice just off of the Larsen C ice shelf.

"We get two types of icebergs: We get the type that everyone can envision in their head that sank the Titanic, and they look like prisms or triangles at the surface and you know they have a insane subsurface", Kelly Brunt, an ice scientist with NASA, told Live Science. Scientists have documented this sort of thing before, but this latest 'berg, which recently split from Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf, happens to be a rather extraordinary example.

"What makes this one a bit unusual is that it looks nearly like a square", she said. They are wide and flat and long, like sheet cake, Brunt said.

And as with all icebergs only 10% of it is visible; the rest if buried below the surface of the water.

A triangular iceberg was also seen nearby, surrounded by several different types of sea ice.

"In the open water, grease ice is forming".
