In this fantastic capture by Rita Willaert, we see a large iceberg in Northeast Greenland National Park. The iceberg was spotted at 70°N 26°W.

Northeast Greenland National Park is the world’s largest and most northerly national park. It protects 972,001 km2 (375,000 sq mi) of the interior and northeastern coast of Greenland and is bigger than all but thirty countries in the world. It was the first national park to be created in the Kingdom of Denmark and remains Greenland’s only national park. The park has no permanent human population. [Source]
