SCAR Gazetteer Information: Each place can have one or more entries in the SCAR Composite Gazetteer, dependant on its origin. By viewing an individual entry, you may see multiple references to the same place. SCAR uses a more general feature type coding, so each place will, in general, have multiple feature types.

between Cardell Glacier and Erskine Glacier, Loubet Coast, was called in error Cape Bellue (q.v.) (USHO chart 6653, 1946) or Cabo Bellue (Chile. DNH chart LII, 1947); photographed from the air by FIDASE and surveyed from the ground by FIDS from "Detaille Island", 1956-57; named Phantom Point because the feature loomed like a phantom out of thick fog when first visited by a FIDS sledge party in 1957 (APC, 1959a, p.10; BA, 1961, p.188).

Phantom Point (USA) 66° 25' 00.0" S 65° 41' 00.0" W Point
Name ID: 130092 Place ID: 11203

Point within Darbel Bay, lying 1.5 mi W of Shanty pt. on the W coast of Graham Land. Photographed by Hunting Aerosurveys Ltd. in 1955-57, and mapped from these photos by the FIDS. The name arose because the position of the point was only vaguely known when first visited by an FIDS sledge party in 1957, and it was obscured by thick fog from which it finally loomed like a phantom.
