A small alpine glacier about 1.5km long and 2.8km wide, east of Howard Glacier and west of Von Guerard Glacier. It flows into the Taylor Valley from the south and heads at the crest of the Kukri Hills. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-MF10
Although seen by the British Antarctic Expedition (Terra Nova expedition, BrAE), 1910-13, it was first studied by Professor T L Péwé of the US Deep Freeze III, 1957-58, who visited this region in December 1957. He gave it this name because of its crescent shape when seen from the floor of the Taylor Valley.
