Ferryland, a small coastal Canadian town, became a tourist hot spot this week due to an unusual sighting. An iceberg larger in size than the one that sank the Titanic has sailed up to the coast.

The Canadian Ice Service classified it as "large," which means it has a height of 151-240 feet.

According to experts, there have been more icebergs than usual passing along the North Atlantic shipping lanes because of strong counter-clockwise winds drawing them south, and perhaps also global warming, which is accelerating the process by which chunks of the Greenland ice sheet break off and float away.
