Scientists discovered an outlying island coral reef in Australia, which is reportedly taller than the Empire State Building. On Sunday, researchers used underwater robots to explore separated corals near the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

The 1,600-foot-high reef was discovered for the first time in an ocean mapping project earlier this month. According to reports, this is the first independent coral reef discovered by scientists in more than 120 years.

Researchers will continue to map until the depth of the area is discovered in mid-November.
