|A unique observation in Kongsfjorden. A bowhead whale. The whale which was hunted to extinction in the 17th century has made a comeback. Pictures by Trond Sandmo and Stig Pedersen working with the Geodetic observatory in Ny-Ålesund.|
Below two videos in which you can see even better that it is a bowhead whale. Also you can see the slow movements of this whale which made it easily catchable. In the first video you can see the town of Ny-Ålesund in the background. In the second video you can see a characteristic blow.
