The Pryamougol'naya Bay ( Russian Бухта Прямоугольная Buchta Prjamougolnaja , German 'rectangular bay ' ) is a bay in the ice shelf off the Princess Astrid coast of the East Antarctic Queen Maud Land . It is located on the southeast side of Neupokoyev Bight .
Norwegian cartographers mapped them using aerial photographs taken between 1958 and 1959 during the Third Norwegian Antarctic Expedition (1956–1960). Soviet scientists mapped it again in 1961 and gave it its name based on its shape. The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names transferred the Russian designation in 1970 in a partial translation into English.
