This isn’t something that happens every day, but when it does, it’s definitely a sight to behold.

Yes, Earth has a new island, formed after the proximal Hunga Tonga volcano started erupting in December in the South Pacific. It’s still an unnamed land mass, and scientists aren’t going to bother naming it, since it won’t last longer than a few more months due to volcanic activity.

Fewer than a dozen people have set foot on the new soil or ventured into its 10 caves. For the brief time it’s in existence, the locals are hoping it’ll become a tourist destination, but for now, the nearly 2000-foot long volcanic island is still considered untouched territory.

Put your explorer hat on and take a tour through these amazing photos.
