Aaron Glacier (85°08′S 90°40′W / 85.133°S 90.667°W / -85.133; -90.667) is a 4-mile (6.4 km) long Antarctic glacier which drains between the Janulis Spur and the Gray Spur in the Thiel Mountains. The name was proposed by Peter Bermel and Arthur B. Ford, co-leaders of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Thiel Mountains party from 1960 to 1961. It was named for John M. Aaron, a USGS geologist and member of the 1960–61 and 1961–62 field parties to the Thiel Mountains.
