22:22:44 <ynpvisitor108> Hope you are all enjoying the auroral oval
22:26:00 <ynpvisitor86> great aurora
00:07:15 <ynpvisitor86> nice banding on the aurora -- greens and reds
03:39:47 <ynpvisitor89> Wow, watched the webcam replay, pretty nice aurora's last night
03:39:49 <ynpvisitor89>
03:40:06 <Betty> morning Kevin. Early bird
03:41:05 <Kevin iPad> Morning Betty. Monaco Grand Prix.
03:41:24 <Betty> ahh, I see :-)
03:46:46 <Kevin iPad> Plus a shot at BH...
03:48:44 <Kevin iPad> Looks like rain may mess up the other Indy and Charlotte. :(
03:53:33 <Betty> OF
03:58:49 <Kevin iPad> That was a great show last night. The aurora forecast looked good for it.
04:03:19 <Kevin iPad> Also got to see some mountain sheep on my train ride yesterday! I was on the 1430 train so I figured it was too hot so I wasn't even looking. An 8 year old girl spotted them
04:05:26 <Betty> Riverside
04:06:07 <Betty> nice
04:16:06 <Betty> Grand
04:21:36 <Betty> and Daisy
04:56:07 <ynpvisitor65> no line at the gate, lets go
05:01:42 <Betty> morning Graham
05:06:04 <Graham> morning
05:22:21 <Betty> wow, nice OF
05:35:56 <Betty> bbl
05:48:39 <Graham> dwarf is off
06:55:23 <Graham> still only a short line at West gate
06:56:28 <Graham> looks like N entrance has a longer line
07:15:56 <Graham> BH is taking its time
07:46:09 <Graham> splashy
07:47:50 <Graham> ledge spring report
07:52:53 <Graham> they had an Aurum report too
07:53:30 <ynpvisitor11> We saw it here too.
08:32:06 <Graham> over 19 1/2 hours - is BH broken?
08:35:37 <ynpvisitor11> Don't suggest that to all those people out there waiting for it!
08:54:39 <ynpvisitor86> bhi
08:54:39 <ynpvisitor86> .
08:54:39 <ynpvisitor86> .
08:54:40 <ynpvisitor86> .
08:54:40 <ynpvisitor86> .
08:54:41 <ynpvisitor86> .
08:55:19 <ynpvisitor43> Beehive time!
08:55:24 <Casey> Perfect timing
08:57:22 <Brian> thanks for text!
08:58:38 <ynpvisitor999> We may get a Lion soon, too
09:05:31 <ynpvisitor112> Dare we say "False Indicator"?
09:05:54 <ynpvisitor2> way too early.
09:06:25 <Casey> I don't see any logic in predicting one, but if it does, I know who to blame.
09:06:45 <ynpvisitor999> I'd say that a false indicator is likely when Beehive's Indicator is erupting for >30m, but no Beehive (yet)
09:08:02 <Casey> I misread the GT widget on the "simple4" page yesterday and thought there was a 30+ minute Indy. I was nervous then until I realized my error.
09:08:37 <ynpvisitor999> it could be useful when the rows have an alternating background color
09:10:37 <Brian> big memorial day crowd in the basin
09:10:57 <ynpvisitor999> LC
09:14:41 <ynpvisitor999> BHI: 20m
09:15:00 <ynpvisitor999> no worries just yet
09:15:12 <ynpvisitor999> BH
09:15:28 <Casey> Boom
09:15:30 <ynpvisitor999> after 21 minutes
09:17:32 <ynpvisitor999> Increasing intervals
09:20:06 <ynpvisitor70> They will shorten up this week with nicer weather.
09:20:22 <ynpvisitor999> I hope so :)
09:22:29 <ynpvisitor999> Enjoy Lion. Hopefully it goes within an hour
10:37:43 <ynpvisitor51> Grand
11:06:04 <ynpvisitor29> another one burst Grand, this is not a fun pattern for gazers
11:33:27 <Betty> hi all
11:34:30 <Casey> Hi Betty
11:34:58 <Betty> hi Casey
11:37:24 <Betty> mini LC
11:37:58 <Betty> looking better now
11:39:17 <Casey> Lion
12:00:07 <ynpvisitor12> I love all the people leaving half way through fluffy
12:00:18 <ynpvisitor12> Meh you seen 1 minute of geysers you've seen them all
12:22:34 <Betty> Daisy
12:23:23 <ynpvisitor29> 50+ gazers in the park and no one at Daisy? Wow
12:31:09 <ynpvisitor29> the cell service must not be so great with all the people now, took 4 minutes to upload SteveO's post
12:40:01 <ynpvisitor73> 21m indicator, fun
14:23:30 <ynpvisitor101> Hoping that the Sawmill group wakes up soon so that there's more interesting stuff to look at!
15:08:33 <ynpvisitor101> Daisy
15:12:08 <ynpvisitor35> Daisy
15:12:37 <ynpvisitor86> you'vr got s ad lag. It was 4 minutes ago
15:13:28 <ynpvisitor35> Probably so. Been on all day
15:15:16 <ynpvisitor101> OF
15:16:14 <ynpvisitor101> Nice contrast with the dark clouds
15:17:04 <ynpvisitor86> I agree
16:54:07 <ynpvisitor101> OF
16:54:26 <ynpvisitor101> Great backlight!
16:59:44 <ynpvisitor101> Grand ie
17:03:31 <ynpvisitor62> nice light
17:07:04 <ynpvisitor101> Split Cone ie
17:07:23 <ynpvisitor62> will it offer up a second burst?
17:10:23 <ynpvisitor110> Surprised no in basin reports
17:11:10 <ynpvisitor86> They have all come in late today. I suspect cell phone service is overwhelmed with the crowds.
17:12:00 <ynpvisitor62> first day I have noticed that, the late uploading
17:12:44 <ynpvisitor110> Yeah that's real bad as the GT app seems to be VERY light weight data wise
17:13:38 <ynpvisitor110> Nice part of visiting in the shoulder seasons and during the winter is normal internet access on the cell site
17:13:54 <ynpvisitor62> Dave M was right on it, often cam ops get the same time as basin times
17:14:21 <ynpvisitor62> and if they are entered into GT, they will eventually upload
17:15:24 <ynpvisitor62> I noticed extended cell range driving through Hayden Valley and around the Lake, yet no extensions near OF
17:16:02 <ynpvisitor62> so was that a one burst?
17:16:30 <ynpvisitor110> Hayden and Lake have line of sight to Washburn and tends to be decent coverage on Verizon
17:16:51 <ynpvisitor62> much better than past years
17:16:58 <ynpvisitor62> maybe because it was early though
17:17:20 <ynpvisitor110> I'm thinking about getting a weBoost to see if that helps from LGB and Norris
17:17:52 <ynpvisitor62> not sure anything will get through from LGB, it will be a good experiment
17:18:10 <ynpvisitor110> I'll report back on results
17:18:13 <ynpvisitor62> there are places at Norris you can catch cell, so maybe boosting it there will succeed
17:18:46 <ynpvisitor101> Still no Castle. Just more preplay.
17:19:33 <ynpvisitor101> Riverside ie?
17:19:36 <ynpvisitor110> Curious if the Washburn cell tower upgrade is going to happen
17:19:52 <ynpvisitor110> Is it a done deal with the public input period a formality or something they take seriously
17:19:52 <ynpvisitor62> have not heard
17:20:06 <ynpvisitor62> I say yes, to Riverside
17:20:49 <ynpvisitor62> gazers may also be socializing at cabins instead of at Grand, though HK was there I imagine
17:21:57 <ynpvisitor110> Requested old cabins for our trip in 2 weeks, I love being able to roll out of bed and run to BH
17:22:24 <ynpvisitor110> Curious how the new cabins are setup
17:22:52 <ynpvisitor110> We stayed in the snow lodge cabins in February and felt luxurious having a bathroom
17:30:49 <ynpvisitor62> Aurum?
17:31:03 <ynpvisitor86> yes
17:31:25 <ynpvisitor62> nice, I think I saw it almost from the start
17:31:29 <ynpvisitor101> good timing on the close-up
17:31:37 <ynpvisitor62> yes, thanks
17:32:33 <ynpvisitor40> Nice!
17:35:49 <ynpvisitor110> Thanks for the heads up on Aurum!
17:37:57 <ynpvisitor101> is it possible to see Tilt's Baby on the cam?
17:38:34 <ynpvisitor110> I don't think so, it's hard to see standing right over it on the boardwalk ;)
17:39:16 <ynpvisitor101> Can't say I disagree
17:41:36 <ynpvisitor110> All joking aside, I think between the trees in the way and the steam from Crested pool it would be difficult to catch such a small feature from this distance.
17:46:01 <ynpvisitor101> Castle
17:47:50 <ynpvisitor101> At least Castle waited for the Sun to come out
17:50:27 <ynpvisitor110> Tilt's baby? ;)
17:50:48 <ynpvisitor101> LOL
17:52:16 <ynpvisitor101> sprinkler ie
17:55:08 <ynpvisitor101> the lighting has just been great all afternoon
18:07:17 <ynpvisitor1> That is cool
18:10:32 <ynpvisitor118> rich
18:13:21 <ynpvisitor65> Daisy
18:15:14 <ynpvisitor65> it's neat seeing all the details in the water jets
18:19:22 <ynpvisitor65> Depression ie?
18:33:22 <ynpvisitor65> OF
18:36:13 <ynpvisitor65> amazing sunset, to cap great day of virtual gazing. Thanks Cam OP for following all the acton
