22:05:55 <ynpvisitor94> is Indy ie?
22:06:16 <ynpvisitor40> no this is the tail end of BH
22:06:25 <ynpvisitor94> =(
22:07:14 <ynpvisitor40> there was no indicator
22:07:32 <ynpvisitor94> oh... ok
22:12:43 <ynpvisitor94> .
22:27:08 <ynpvisitor94> OF
01:34:09 <ynpvisitor57> OF
04:58:32 <David A pdx> Good Morning!
05:23:59 <Jimbo Tellurium> According to the Web site "It's Elemental", tellurium is one of the main ingredients in blasting caps
05:24:44 <David A pdx> How're you doing Jimbo?!
05:56:26 <David A pdx> can't tell if Sprinkler is just steaming heavily or ie.
06:25:09 <Jimbo Tellurium> Everything is steaming heavily this morning. Giantess looks ready to blow (but it never does)
06:26:59 <ynpvisitor25> Did any one get the last Faithful time?
06:35:01 <ynpvisitor25> Anyone know how to go back on the camera stream and get the last Faithful?
06:40:47 <ynpvisitor72> I do not, sorry ynpvisitor25
06:48:08 <kc (working)> no way to rewind live stream, need to capture to go back
06:48:31 <kc (working)> unless Eric has his youtube stream going, but i dont think he does
07:03:47 <ynpvisitor41> What's the BH estimate today?
07:27:31 <Jake> GT has 1222 - 1622 for Beehive
07:28:04 <Jake> which seems reasonable :)
07:49:56 <Jake> OF
08:01:38 <Jake> Castle ie
08:01:50 <Jake> since 0952 apparently
08:11:11 <Kevin L> BH between 1145 and 1330
08:11:18 <ynpvisitor89> Daisy now
08:12:21 <Eric> Lot O steam
08:13:49 <Kevin L> Morning Eric
08:14:06 <Eric> Morning Kevin
08:15:50 <Eric> grotto area steam too
08:16:20 <Jake> Grotto in marathon per JimS
08:16:29 <Eric> Nice
08:16:43 <Jake> looks like Bulger ie
08:16:54 <Eric> Castle shift to steam there with that burst?
08:17:26 <Jake> this is the right timing for transition
08:17:48 <Eric> Never really seen it transition on the cam :-)
08:17:56 <Jake> I really like when it has turned to steam, but then shifts back for a couple shots of water--they go higher
08:18:25 <Eric> So Castle major
08:18:48 <Eric> What is behind to the left of castle
08:18:54 <Jake> definitely
08:18:56 <Eric> Nice steam cloud
08:19:18 <Jake> Black Sand Basin
08:19:28 <Jake> could be Cliff Geyser
08:20:01 <Jake> or Spouter Geyser
08:20:15 <Jake> or just general steaming on this steamy day
08:20:54 <Jake> or another propane leak in the Govt Area...did you see those pictures?
08:21:08 <Eric> just ligned it up...too far right for black sands there
08:21:25 <Jake> really? hmmmm
08:21:27 <Eric> looks to be in lign with sheild spring
08:21:31 <Eric> line
08:21:52 <Eric> drew a straight line on google maps from cam to the left of castle :-)
08:22:37 <Jake> I see...Punchbowl Spring or Black Sand Pool are in that area
08:24:53 <Eric> hmmm, maybe...perspective is hard at a distance :-)
08:35:41 <Jake> Black Sand Pool is not really in Black Sand Basin proper
08:35:59 <Jake> since the road makes for an artificial dividing line
08:44:36 <Eric> Ya, I am familiar with the Pool :-) layed on the ground and felt it's thumps....pretty cool.
08:49:07 <Jake> oh good. who knows how long that phenomenon will last
08:49:34 <Jake> big ranger walk on Geyser Hill
09:27:52 <Jake> Depression ie ?
09:28:06 <Jake> yes
09:28:18 <Kevin L> Nice
09:28:48 <Jake> sunshine-ish!
09:30:35 <Kevin L> Now for Aurum
09:32:04 <Jake> perhaps. if the rain helped it along any
09:32:42 <Kevin L> Ove 10h so rain didn't help
09:33:55 <Jake> assuming one was missed this morning
09:33:59 <Jake> OF
09:39:04 <Jake> Beehive threatening to go early
09:39:17 <Jake> BH
09:39:20 <kc (working)> nice catch
09:39:22 <Jake> no indicator
09:39:28 <Jake> cam op on top of it
09:39:37 <Jimbo Tellurium> wow there it IS
09:39:40 <ynpvisitor36> Wow
09:39:45 <ynpvisitor31> wow
09:39:59 <Jimbo Tellurium> do we have a "wow" consensus?
09:39:59 <Jake> didn't even make it to Kevin's prediction of 1145
09:40:02 <ynpvisitor31> a bit early.
09:40:09 <ynpvisitor31> no BHI?
09:40:14 <Jimbo Tellurium> nope
09:40:19 <ynpvisitor31> wow.
09:40:23 <ynpvisitor47> Nice!
09:41:00 <Jake> two no indicators in a row
09:41:09 <ynpvisitor31> that's wild
09:41:25 <ynpvisitor47> Maybe indi is going dormant
09:41:37 <Eric> woot
09:41:59 <Eric> looked over and saw 17 messages on this tab....
09:43:21 <ynpvisitor31> 11 hr interval...
09:43:34 <Eric> wowza
09:43:59 <Eric> Glad I was here for my 11 hour BH :-P
09:44:11 <ynpvisitor31> LC ie
09:44:32 <Jake> next up: 9 hrs...or 22
09:45:55 <Jake> Grand ie
09:46:18 <Eric> Dang...gettting every major UGB geyser done in a short bit of time
09:47:26 <ynpvisitor47> Maybe when the cam pans out, Giantess will be erupting...lol a guy can dream
09:47:41 <ynpvisitor31> pretty nice! i'm hoping for this to be 'anticapatable' for later in June when I'm there.
09:48:03 <ynpvisitor31> you can dream!
09:50:29 <Jimbo Tellurium> gee, you look away for a couple of minutes...
09:50:52 <Jimbo Tellurium> nice and straight jets from Grand
09:53:23 <Eric> Ya, this kind of tight pack eruption probably not so good for in basin :-P You need an extra 10 or 15 minutes between.
09:53:24 <Jake> seems to be more 2 bursts this year on GT
09:54:47 <Jake> physically impossible to pull off the Grand and Beehive viewing today
09:54:55 <Jake> up close anyway
09:55:13 <Jake> 2nd
09:55:41 <ynpvisitor31> sweet
10:26:21 <ynpvisitor72> .
10:28:17 <ynpvisitor47> Australia was just hit with a 6.2 EQ in its northern territory
10:30:32 <ynpvisitor85> no indy BH under 12 hours...interesting
10:34:12 <ynpvisitor47> Check out this situation update I just got about the quake swarm under Mt. Hood. It also mentions Yellowstone...http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/database/?pageid=event_update&edis_id=EQ-20160517-53355-USA
10:34:24 <ynpvisitor47> http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/database/?pageid=event_update&edis_id=EQ-20160517-53355-USA
10:44:32 <kc (working)> terrifying footage?
10:44:59 <ynpvisitor47> Thats exactly what i thought! lol
10:46:17 <ynpvisitor85> wow, who writes that stuff?
10:46:46 <ynpvisitor85> that person should lose their job, raising alarm about Yellowstone in that brief
10:49:11 <ynpvisitor47> I think this site is based out of Turkey. I use it often to get alerts about volcanos and earthquakes, but I've never once seen them mention Yellowstone, other than the landslide at big horn mountains and new features forming
10:50:00 <ynpvisitor47> I can't find the video they mention in search either. does anyone know a link?
10:50:12 <kc (working)> Hungary based on domain. no offense, but just looks like a paranoia web site
10:51:07 <kc (working)> would love to see a video that shows steam and ash rising beneath a surface...
10:51:55 <ynpvisitor47> Lol me too. I don't think tourists would be in the park, if such a video even exists
10:54:41 <ynpvisitor85> the internet is a crazy place
11:08:14 <ynpvisitor72> Dunraven opened a week early, wow
11:27:30 <ynpvisitor85> not much snow to plow through this season, there was no snow on the divide at Craig Pass on opening day for it
11:34:42 <ynpvisitor72> having everything open helps keep things moving
11:43:05 <Kevin L> Missed BH, Grand, & Aurum. What a day.
11:45:04 <ynpvisitor85> another no indy BH
12:15:07 <ynpvisitor72> wish we could see F&M
12:28:30 <Kevin L> It probably went when I was gone too.
12:31:23 <Eric> Interesting quote from that RSOE link earlier: "Yellowstone volcano has been another US volcano which has showed signs that it is about to burst into life. Terrifying footage recently emerged which shows steam and ash rising beneath the surface of the 2,805m tall volcano, which is probably the deadliest in the US, in Wyoming, fuelling fresh concern it could be about to blow.
12:31:44 <Eric> No source sited...so I have to call BS on it.
12:31:50 <Eric> cited
12:35:08 <Eric> Ok...here is a quote from a source I trust: "At Mount Hood, a swarm of small earthquakes was detected May 15-16, 2016. Studies of past swarms have concluded that they likely are occurring on pre-existing regional faults and are best thought of as "tectonic" earthquakes rather than earthquakes directly linked to magmatic processes."
12:35:34 <Eric> via the USGS: http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatories/cvo/
12:38:30 <ynpvisitor80> So... in other words the earth crust is shifting. Kind of a duh thing, huh?
12:38:59 <ynpvisitor80> Better than some anonymous eastern euro bs!
12:39:23 <Kevin L> I love the 2805m tall volcano. Sounds like a huge mountain. I don't think the realized it was a volcano until the 1970's.
12:40:26 <Eric> ya, pretty much tabloid material there
12:41:08 <Eric> The quakes since Monday have picked up pace a little though...but no word about it being to far out of the ordinary from USGS
12:42:28 <Kevin L> I think most volcanoes have earthquake swarms. It just means things are moving down there! Now that big jolt on the other hand.....
12:44:36 <Kevin L> Volcanoes are like tornadoes. Awesome displays of nature, but horribly destructive. Sort of like a 3 year old kid.
12:44:54 <Eric> I grew up at the base of Mt. Hood...so I can tell you it's had shakes from time to time :-)
12:45:19 <Eric> You get enough 3 year olds...they can do way more destruction than a volcano
12:45:22 <Kevin L> It is a pretty mountain.
12:45:51 <Eric> Ya, especially camping up on high mountain lakes fishing :-)
12:46:11 <Eric> No sound, the reflection of the mountain in the lake...perfect peace
12:46:45 <Eric> Taught my daughter to fish up on a lake at mt. hood
12:46:48 <Kevin L> Sounds nice
12:47:29 <Eric> The fish scared the crap out of her....she won't eat seafood anymore :-(
12:48:51 <Kevin L> That first fish is a bit scary.
12:50:38 <Eric> This is one of my favorite lakes in the country: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/1153194
12:51:01 <Eric> Central Oregon, Looking up at Mt. Bachelor from Hosmer Lake.
12:51:20 <Eric> Fly fishing only, no motors on the lake
12:51:34 <Eric> Giant Land locked Atlantic Salmon everywhere
12:52:26 <Kevin L> Looks great. Salmon sound good too.
13:18:56 <Jake> Lion is due
13:19:04 <Jake> "soon"
13:36:06 <Kevin L> Winds at Area 51 are SW38G50. That may blow some of the aliens from there to Yellowstone. Watch for UFOs on the cam tonight!
13:46:21 <Kevin L> Daisy
13:47:51 <Jake> we're gazing on the high seas today
13:54:21 <Eric> Good day to fly a kite cam into area 51 :-)
13:54:45 <Eric> You just need really, really long string :-)
13:59:16 <Eric> cool article...what it takes to get a kite 14k ft in the sky: http://www.outsideonline.com/1819416/flight-millibar-messenger
14:03:12 <Kevin L> I steer clear of Area 51. There are mean looking guys with big guns out there!
14:05:28 <Eric> They might be super sweet :-) No judgement....
14:05:59 <Kevin L> They don't smile a lot.
14:07:52 <Jake> Lion
