Rare Pics : Island Formation in Ocean

It appears INCREDIBLE !!! In November 2006, the yacht 'Maiken' was traveling in the South Pacific when they came across a weird sight -

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

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

The trail left by the yacht..through the sand

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...

Imagine the thrill of being the first & only people to see a new island being created ,
seemingly from nowhere?

Mother Nature in all her amazing spleandour!!! An awesome sight to behold.
