Subject: Amazing sight in the South Pacific
August 2006, the yacht 'Maiken' is travelling in the south Pacific when they came across a weird sight...

It was sand in the water, and floating ON TOP of the waves...

This is not a beach, it is volcanic stones floating on the water.

The trail left by the yacht...

 

And then this was spotted... ash and steam rising from the ocean...

And, while they were watching...

A brand new island formed...

A plume of black ash...

Pretty wild, huh?
