Glacier on the E coast of Alexander Island, 7 mi long and 2 mi wide at its mouth, flowing SE from Planet Heights into George VI Sound immediately N of Fossil Bluff. Probably first seen on Nov. 23, 1935, by Lincoln Ellsworth, who flew directly over the glacier and obtained photos of features N and S of it. The mouth of the glacier was observed and positioned by the BGLE in 1936 and the FIDS in 1948 and 1949. The glacier was mapped in detail from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, by Searle of the FIDS in 1960. Named by UK-APC after the minor planet Eros in association with nearby Pluto and Uranus Glaciers.
