Mariners report new island in South Pacific

A new volcanic island has risen from the South Pacific near Tonga, according to reports from two vessels that passed the area.

The crew of the Maiken, a yacht that left the northern Tongan islands group of Vava'u in August, reported on their Web log on August 12 that they saw streaks of light, porous pumice stone floating in the water -- then "sailed into a vast, many-miles-wide belt of densely packed pumice."

That's pretty sweet. The world's lost much of it's mystery and chances for old school, 1st time exploration, and it's cool to see someone got that chance. Although, I'm not sure how much I'd want to sail through a sea of rocks where land is emerging (or a volcano is erupting). I guess I'm just a land lubber through and through.
