This gets my vote for photos of the day. Check out this spectacular slideshow of an undersea volcano currently erupting off the Tongan coast. The volcano reportedly poses no threat to the human population in the area, though the rocks it’s throwing off are expected to wash up on the beaches of Fiji. For now, behold the power of nature.
