Hi,
this might be old, but i found it too interesting to be shared here.

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.

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

Can you 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 splendor!!! An awesome sight to behold.
