Black iceberg photo goes viral via Reddit, user Rundoll's pic spreads quickly around the internet


You never know what quirky things will "go viral" each day on the internet. On Saturday, it was a photo of this black iceberg.

This photo popped up on Reddit by a user named "Rundoll" according to a Fox 8 report and quickly swept its way around the internet.

According to The Canada Encyclopedia:

"Others may appear green, brown or black, or combinations of these colors. These icebergs have usually rolled over, exposing basal ice, or have emerged from below water level. The various colorations are caused by differences in density, air-bubble content and impurities. For example, black ice is of high density and bubble free; dark layers indicate the presence of rock materials derived from the base of the parent glacier. Occasionally, rocks may be found on the original upper surface of the iceberg. As the iceberg melts, these materials precipitate into marine or lake sediments."
