All wrong comments. I say that this mountain is the same that has been predicted to appear near Qiama. It is full of gold.

Its too early to comment on the ISland till its proper specification is available. I dont think someone would visit at night and measure it and publish it at night. We should name after the Shuhdaa of Earthquick of September 2013. Suggest name!
