ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – A century after it sank the fascination over the Titanic continues. Now a Titanic expert believes we have a picture of the iceberg that sank the ship. It was taken two days before the tragedy on April 12th, 1912. This photograph was taken by a captain aboard another ship. It shows an elliptical-shaped iceberg.
The captain found the distinctive iceberg so remarkable he wrote the current latitude and longitude on his picture.
Two days later the ‘unsinkable’ TItanic struck an iceberg that had the same elliptical shape. A Titanic expert says he’s sure this is the Titanic iceberg because of the coordinates written on the photo.
The piece of ice was enormous at 82-feet high and 262 feet wide.
