A "smoke" column rising several thousand meters from the sea, steaming turbulent water, water discoloration, and a probable raft of floating pumice were seen from the air at a point 90 km NE of Necker Island on August 20, 1953. Despite a water depth at this point of approximately 4 km, Macdonald (1959) considered there to be little doubt that a submarine eruption, the westernmost historical volcanic eruption in the Hawaiian lsland chain, had occurred.
