Boat Crew Witnessed The Actual Birth Of A New Island

Too many people do not take in the beauty of the world we live in. However, a boat crew was so intrigued with what they saw before their eyes. An act of nature!!!
The crew of the Maiken was enjoying a leisurely sail through the South Pacific when they saw a strange discoloration on the water. They moved in closer to inspect it, but by the time they realized what it was, it was too late.

Maiken crew was nearing the Vava’u Islands in Tonga when they started to notice a strange coloring of the water. When they moved closer, they found that the sea appeared to have turned to stone. But, only a minutes later, the rising land mass appeared to be coming up out of the ocean, “like the Sahara with rolling hills of sand as far as the eye could see,” according to Fredrik Fransson, one of the crew members.

It appears that the crew had landed on a massive, floating, pumice stone, and merely miles away from them, the ocean was hastily pushing fresh land onto the ocean’s surface.

The crew sailed through it, but when they reached a safe distance away, they heard a faint rumbling. Looking back they saw water bubbling from the surface.

The source of the pumice stone was an underwater volcano that was actually erupting at the time!

When the crew began posting online of what they had seen, researchers gave their theories. According to them, the eruption led to the attraction of barnacles, corals, algae and oysters. In fact, it was the actual birth of a new island.

Geologists and Vulcanologists understand that these phenomena have been and will continue to be occurring all the time, although they are rarely witnessed as this one was.
