The crew of the Maiken sailed through the South Pacific when they spotted 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 almost too late to escape alive!
We might not realize it in front of our eyes, but the Earth is still changing all the time! It just happens so slowly that we can’t really perceive it. Every now and then, things speed up… a lot!
The crew of the Maiken was enjoying a leisurely sail through the South Pacific when they spotted 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…
THE CREW OF THE MAIKEN WAS SAILING THE SOUTH PACIFIC WHEN THEY SPOTTED AN UNUSUAL SHADOW.
AS THEY GOT CLOSER, WHAT THEY HAD TAKEN TO BE A SANDBAR REVEALED ITSELF TO BE SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY.
A HUGE AMOUNT OF PUMICE STONE WAS FLOATING TO THE SURFACE OF THE WATER. IT LOOKED LIKE A BEACH.
THEY DECIDED TO GET A CLOSER LOOK AND REDIRECTED THEIR YACHT TOWARDS IT.
IT LOOKS LIKE A BEACH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN!
THE CREW DECIDED TO SAIL THROUGH IT, LEAVING A BREAK IN THE STONE BEHIND THEM AS THEY WENT.
THEY WONDERED WHAT COULD HAVE CAUSED THIS EXPANSE OF STONE TO SUDDENLY APPEAR.
THE FIELD OF PUMICE WAS GETTING EVEN LARGER AS THEY PASSED THROUGH IT. THE CREW HAD AN UNEASY FEELING AND UPPED THEIR SPEED.
ONCE THEY WERE 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!
THEY ANCHORED TO WATCH THIS TREMENDOUS EVENT. MASSIVE PLUMES OF SMOKE FILLED THE SKY.
AS THE SMOKE CLEARED, THEY NOTICED SOMETHING STRANGE JUST AT THE WATER’S SURFACE….
IT WAS LAND!
THE STUNNED CREW COULDN’T BELIEVE WHAT THEY WERE SEEING: IT WAS THE ACTUAL BIRTH OF A NEW ISLAND.
THEY SAILED A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO SEE IF THEIR EYES WERE PLAYING TRICKS ON THEM.
BUT IT WAS REAL. THE PEAKS OF THIS NEW LAND MASS WERE ALREADY TAKING FORM.
IT WAS ONE OF THE RAREST EVENTS IMAGINABLE.
They were so lucky! Not only because they were able to witness such an impossible sight… but also because they barely escaped with their lives!

They are even luckier than they know. Volcanoes often give off poison gasses. They are lucky gasses didn’t spread out over the ocean and kill them as they watched the eruption. And even luckier still that it didn’t explode like Krakatoa or Mt St Helens. I would have motored at top speed when I saw pumice.
The pacific plate produces basaltic lava which is thinner and doesn’t produce much gas. Gaseous lava is much thicker and can solidify over the main vent which is why an explosive volcano explodes. Krakatoa completely blow itself up, Mt St Helen’s didn’t explode an earthquake weakened its north flank and caused a landslide which exposed fresh the magma. I agree underwater volcanoes are violent but not to the extreme of an explosive volcano.
Mt St Helen’s didn’t explode?!? From a contemporary national news report: “Washington state’s Mount St. Helens volcano explodes in a cataclysm that pulverizes its top 1,300 feet, deforests nearby valleys, sends ash 12 miles into the air and kills 57 people.”
In the last picture, what is the tall dark mass on the island? Space ship landed, or did a tree grow in a seconds too? Haha
they planted a flag on a big pole
possibly a strange plume of gravel or pumice or something? Kinda looks like a crag or rock. I ssuppose it couldl be, having been fored up by the eruption.
See? Nature is the creator, not some bizarre concoction of whatever sky beings you’ve been raised to believe in.
Agreed. Also who created creator? They merely push creation one step further with their beliefs.
thank you anon for sharing this rare eruption depiction and story… you do the world justice! Barry Coe
