The massive cargo ship dubbed the "Ever Given" has finally been set free after being stuck in the Suez Canal for six days straight, completely blocking other ships from making it through.
Dislodging the 220,000-ton ship was no easy feat, as salvage crews worked non-stop for days, and it even took the power of good ole' mother nature to get it going once again.

The New York Times reports the first full moon of spring was called into action, as it was able to provide a higher tide that was able to greatly assist the workers' efforts.
Once the tide rose, a crew of tugboats and dredgers quickly got to work and were able to get the boat moving again at around 3 p.m. local time.
But while the massive ship is moving, things won't be operating as usual in the Suez Canal just yet, as it is reportedly being inspected to ensure safe passage for others.
