Brunt Ice Shelf

NASA's DC-8 flew over the Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica on Oct. 26, 2010, during the first flight of NASA's Operation IceBridge Antarctic 2010 campaign. The shadow of the DC-8 is surrounded by a halo that comes from the refraction of sunlight through ice crystals in the air. Credit: NASA/Michael Studinger
