The iceberg was just floating peacefully in the water, it was the Titanic which was moving rapidly under power, and which hit the iceberg. Why do they always blame the iceberg? They were common in the northern Atlantic that time of year. The likelihood is that the Titanic was moving much more rapidly than it should have been, possibly to break the trans-Atlantic record. By the time the berg was sited, there was insufficient time to turn the massive ship out of harm's way. There is also some evidence that there were weaknesses in the metal of the hull and or rivets. These weaknesses would not have been detectable with existing technology at the time the Titanic was built.
The Titanic hit the iceberg 350 miles off the coast of Canada.

When Titanic hit the iceberg on April 14th, she had been sailing for some days since leaving Ireland on April 11th.
It was night, and the closest ship turned the radio off
The Titanic sank off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, after hitting an iceberg.
Iceberg is to titanic as Delilah is to Samson (Samson was destroyed by Delilah who cut off his hair in the Bible, and he lost his strength, as is the Iceberg which destroyed titantic).
No, the bow was not broken off. Ice had damaged the hull on the starboard side under the waterline but the bow was not harmed.
its a thing where you hit a iceberg and bounce off it again
there was never a name for Titanic's iceberg but it's believed to have been spawned off the Jakobshavn Glacier from the Ilulissat fjord in western Greenland in 1909.
What I hear happened was the Titanic had gotten massages about iceberg fields ahead but Capt. Smith still had the Titanic cruising along at maybe 24 knots, and it's highest was 25 knots. The men in the crows nest spotted the iceberg with only their eyes, and they rang the bell. The Titanic was turning and it seemed to not hit but it did. If the men in the crows nest had had binoculars, which were in a locked locker (because a crew member was put off the ship for another, and he by mistake took the key to the locker.) they could have spotted it quicker and therefore the Titanic would not have hit the iceberg which in fact was a blackberg.
Titanic encountered an iceberg that may have been spawned from the Jakobshavn Glacier (off western Greenland).
One important event was the accidental ramming of the Olympic. When Titanic's sister ship was returned to the yards for repairs, this delayed the maiden voyage of Titanic, setting her off later - on her collision course with doom.
