A photo of what experts believe is likely the iceberg that sank the Titanic is up for auction.

The black and white picture was taken by the captain of another steam ship, the S.S. Etonian, two days before the fatal collision in 1912, Yahoo! News reported.

In a caption at the bottom, Captain W F Wood identifies the iceberg as the "blueberg" -- an iceberg made blue by the sun's rays -- that sank the Titanic in three hours.

Experts believe it's the same iceberg because it was photographed in the right area and matches descriptions and sketches from that time.
