___ Satellite View of Antarctica

Satellite View of Antarctica using Google Earth Data

Satellite view is showing Antarctica, Earth's southernmost continent, located around the South Pole, the southern point of Earth's rotation axis. Antarctica lies within the Antarctic Circle, it is bordered by the Antarctic ocean also known as the Southern Ocean. The whole continent is almost entirely covered by ice sheets, permanent layers of ice.

Oh, and yes, sorry, Google Maps uses a close variant of the Mercator map projection, so it hardly show areas around the poles, you only can see the "peeled" version of the Antarctica (see the small world map on the right).

So anyway, you may zoom in to explore this cool continent, or you may use Google Earth View of Antarctica. Zoom out to find the location of Antarctica's highest mountain or one of Antarctica's Ice streams, the Lambert Glacier, the world's largest glacier. It drains 8 % of the Antarctic ice sheet to the east and south of the Prince Charles Mountains. You also may find the strange Red Line near South Pole.
