Underwater Volcanic Eruption Witnessed for the First Time

What do you have here? Lava flowing from a deep-ocean seafloor volcano, exploding into 35 foot long streams with bubbles as much as 3 feet across. This kind of action has never been witnessed before. (Somewhat surprising, no?) This clip comes out of The University of Washington. And the real action, which takes place near American Samoa, begins at the 1:28 mark.
