About 70 km to the east, the next image shows the complex network of glaciers north of the Sermilik Fjord. The image looks southwest along the Pourquoi Pas Glacier, which flows up along the left side of the image, eventually merging with the larger Femstjernen Glacier, which flows from right to left across the center of the image, and continuing on to flow into the Sermilik Fjord.
