Watch The Icy Fog Departure Of The American Spirit In Superior
Watch the majestic icy fog departure of the bulk carrier, the American Spirit as it departs the Harbor over in Superior, Wisconsin.
I said it before and I'll say it again, there is just something so magical about large ships entering and departing the Harbor. Last week we saw Mother Nature do her thing when the John G. Munson had a snowy arrival. This week we get to see a crisp, cool morning as another bulk carrier leaves the Twin Ports.
If you remember earlier this year that the cruise ship, the Viking Octantis pulled into the Duluth Harbor when it was foggy. The cruise ship made an eerie arrival as the 672-feet long vessel pulled in. You can check that eerie arrival out here.
The American Spirit is a bulk carrier that was built in 1978. The 44-year-old ship was loaded with iron ore pellets. It looked so cool as it vanished into the cold icy fog.
According to Marine Traffic, the length of the ship overall (LOA) is 306.22 meters and the width is 32 meters. It looks like it was making its way over to Algoma and is still in the Great Lakes. The ship sails under the flag of the United States. You can check out a map of its route here.
