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.
