04:33:20 <ynpvisitor3> Castle
04:33:53 <ynpvisitor3> 0632 wc
04:37:22 <ynpvisitor3> Old Faithful
04:40:38 <ynpvisitor3> long
04:44:11 <ynpvisitor3> k
04:45:27 <ynpvisitor3> hm, the time stamp beside chat doesn't agree with the time on the ynp dashboard bar
04:50:24 <ynpvisitor3> nice splash
04:50:54 <ynpvisitor3> thought it might erupt without indy
05:08:31 <Joe> Quite a few early morning risers waiting for BH
05:13:31 <Graham> good morning
05:14:02 <ynpvisitor61> morning Graham, lc here.
05:15:22 <ynpvisitor85> morning Pa
05:15:48 <ynpvisitor61> morning K
05:16:49 <ynpvisitor85> Lion
05:17:02 <ynpvisitor61> 35 this morning, hope for a heat wave before next week
05:17:34 <Graham> good luck with that
05:17:51 <ynpvisitor85> I just bring layers
05:18:19 <ynpvisitor61> I may stay in bed until 1000
05:19:37 <ynpvisitor61> who is that at Bee?
05:19:44 <ynpvisitor85> Jim
05:21:12 <ynpvisitor85> Castle looks pretty
05:23:33 <ynpvisitor85> on my phone gt doesn't show Bee yesterday, but Jim said his does
05:24:28 <ynpvisitor61> 1433 yesterday
05:25:09 <ynpvisitor85> I tried turning phone off and also refreshing, but it still shows bee last erupted 1d9h1m ago
05:25:41 <ynpvisitor61> strange
05:25:52 <ynpvisitor85> I watched it yesterday
05:26:30 <ynpvisitor61> I didn't see it but it on gt here.
05:26:58 <ynpvisitor85> it was a huge mob Lc
05:27:20 <ynpvisitor85> a herd of people went straight from Grand to Beehive
05:27:50 <ynpvisitor85> I watched about 5 people get off the boardwalk near Depression trying to get a good view
05:32:34 <Graham> thhere will be a big gazer crowd this weekend i bet
05:36:35 <ynpvisitor85> yes lots of socializing
05:44:59 <Graham> maybe with Giant or Giantess for excitement
05:45:36 <ynpvisitor85> one can only wish
05:47:20 <ynpvisitor61> did Jim go to Grand?
05:48:54 <ynpvisitor85> could have
05:49:15 <ynpvisitor85> I don't see him, but cam is also a ways back
05:50:26 <ynpvisitor61> may be getting close to window
05:51:21 <ynpvisitor85> I figured bee might be waiting for the next OF
05:52:10 <ynpvisitor85> which is now in preplay
05:55:08 <ynpvisitor85> wonder if they are having a Rocket
05:55:10 <Graham> Rocket?
05:55:34 <ynpvisitor85> Grotto steamcloud got very bright for a moment
05:56:15 <ynpvisitor85> if Brian's down there, he'll call it and Jim will put it in
05:57:33 <ynpvisitor85> Ok Bee, it is time to wake up
05:59:47 <ynpvisitor85> Yup it was a Rocket
06:01:03 <ynpvisitor85> 2 people waiting at indy spot
06:01:18 <ynpvisitor85> Jim probably went to Grand
06:01:32 <Joe> On the overnight capture at 0334 there is quite a lot of steam at the BH/Lion area, If someone could look and see what they think. I hope it wasn't Bee
06:06:47 <ynpvisitor85> Old Faithful
06:11:04 <ynpvisitor85> that was either Beehive or Lion
06:12:23 <Joe> It seemed to last about 6 min but really unable to tell for sure
06:14:59 <Kent> Poor quality image this mornng. Does the dome need to be cleaned?
06:15:18 <ynpvisitor85> Old Faithful was at 0328 and can't tell for sure if it was Beehive or Lion
06:15:36 <Joe> If Bee does not go in the next two hours or so we may guess it was Bee
06:16:07 <ynpvisitor85> indy
06:16:10 <ynpvisitor85> indy
06:16:26 <ynpvisitor85> must have been Lion earlier
06:16:31 <Joe> Great that answers that question!!
06:16:38 <ynpvisitor29> Could Lion have two series that close?
06:16:56 <ynpvisitor29> I don't think it could have been Lion
06:17:19 <ynpvisitor29> Yet not BH for sure
06:17:42 <ynpvisitor85> did you send text Graham?
06:17:58 <Graham> yes
06:18:00 <ynpvisitor85> and there is text
06:18:27 <ynpvisitor29> I wonder if Grand will wait
06:18:45 <ynpvisitor85> I hope it does
06:20:15 <ynpvisitor29> So BH stretches out in time for the Labor Day crowd
06:21:46 <ynpvisitor29> I wonder if Dave M has gotten BH in person yet?
06:21:53 <ynpvisitor85> Beehive has occasionally been having longer intervals
06:22:09 <ynpvisitor85> since the weather got cooler
06:22:18 <ynpvisitor85> Lion
06:22:32 <ynpvisitor85> and Jim is still at Beehive
06:22:44 <ynpvisitor85> I see his red coat
06:23:49 <Kitt> funny how Lion is drifting one way and indy is drifting a different direction
06:25:55 <Kitt> well before indy started I was going to post that I didn't think Beehive would have a large splash within 3 1/2 hours of last eruption
06:27:06 <Joe> I am glad it was not Bee on the overnight capture :) :)
06:27:30 <Graham> 3.5h intervals would be fun
06:27:32 <ynpvisitor29> Or Lion....
06:27:41 <Kitt> I am pretty sure that was a Lion initial at 0334 wc
06:27:59 <Kitt> must have been a one and done
06:28:13 <Graham> of course BH lovers would never get to see anything else
06:29:06 <Kitt> oh I think we would make choices, but it would be after seeing many eruptions
06:29:21 <Kitt> Fluffy please wait til bee is done
06:30:11 <Kitt> ah, Mary Beth is at Grand
06:30:38 <ynpvisitor61> so there should have been another Lion around 0450.
06:30:47 <Kitt> Beehive
06:30:49 <Joe> BH
06:31:30 <Kitt> ok, we need a light Wyoming breeze
06:32:17 <ynpvisitor61> what is link to overnight captures?
06:32:59 <Kitt> nice Beehive
06:34:34 <Kent> Klick on YouTube in the Help & Important Links menu
06:34:43 <Kevin L™> I wonder how many casual viewers of the NPS feed think this is OF.
06:35:31 <Kitt> a lot
06:36:18 <Kitt> but I have also had visitors at Fountain comment on how beautiful this eruption of Old Faithful is and I have to burst their bubble and tell them it is Fountain Geyser
06:36:36 <Kevin L™> :)
06:37:09 <Kitt> now gazers headed to Grand (hope it waits for them)
06:37:24 <Kitt> and it is Old Faithful's turn
06:38:49 <Joe> link for captures
06:39:07 <ynpvisitor61> thanks
06:39:36 <Joe> yw
06:40:31 <Kevin L™> Check the Help & Important Links on this page for more links.
06:44:19 <Kitt> 0559 wc Lion on overnight capture
06:44:43 <Kitt> so that wasn't the major
06:45:27 <ynpvisitor61> not initial
06:46:05 <Kitt> sorry I meant 0450 wc
06:46:14 <Kitt> for Lion
06:47:21 <Graham> can we get the earlier Lion times on GT? I have not looked at the video
06:47:46 <Graham> SC
06:48:16 <Kitt> so Joe needs to change gt to not initial
06:50:03 <Graham> i flagged it and put a non-ini entry to replace it
06:50:37 <ynpvisitor61> looks like the 0450 Lion was at least 3 minutes.
06:51:32 <Graham> daisy
06:54:06 <ynpvisitor61> bbl
06:55:10 <Kitt> Grand
06:55:11 <Graham> Grand
06:55:43 <Kitt> I just figured Joe would change it
06:57:28 <Graham> if he does i can remove my flag, or it will get flagged away
06:59:47 <Kitt> now I thought that was Grand , but Jim posted Oblong at 0851
07:01:01 <Kitt> and Turban at 0856
07:01:10 <Graham> sure looked vertical to start ... not much wind today
07:05:24 <Kitt> have a nice day
07:06:54 <Joe> Kitt, I changed my Lion post
07:08:22 <Graham> and i removed the flag
07:09:25 <Joe> Thanks
07:39:04 <ynpvisitor92> Grand E time is up
07:46:35 <ynpvisitor92> how does one add an attachment in GT?
08:04:44 <Kevin L™> Click on the eruption you want to add the attachment to and click the ADD ATTACHMENT tab
08:06:27 <ynpvisitor92> oh, it's only on an existing eruption! I was trying to find it in the "Enter" screens
08:07:48 <Kevin L™> If you want to just add a note use Enter and on the top it has Add Eruption or Add Note. Click on the Add note.
08:08:54 <ynpvisitor92> Yes, thanks.
08:18:40 <Graham> now its nap time
08:26:25 <Kevin L™> Still no Aurum
08:53:12 <Graham> over 2 days now, it misses you Kevin
09:17:28 <Graham> daisy
10:07:26 <Graham> of
11:25:53 <ynpvisitor102> how many days for you Graham?
11:45:41 <ynpvisitor102> weird cam coloring again
11:46:15 <Graham> daisy
11:54:46 <Joe> OF
11:54:50 <ynpvisitor102> OF
11:58:18 <Joe> Long
12:22:50 <Graham> 6 days 102
13:02:23 <kcmule> hello
13:02:45 <Graham> zzzz
13:05:55 <kcmule> sorry to disturb naptime
13:21:54 <Graham> of
13:22:56 <kcmule> that's a heck of a delay
13:23:09 <kcmule> guess I need to get used to it
13:26:41 <Graham> i am using the chat page, not the control
13:29:16 <kcmule> looks like its a good 30 second difference
14:02:48 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon everyone
14:03:17 <ynpvisitor999> SC ie
14:06:37 <ynpvisitor999> The OFVCL log of 1992 is entered in GT to, as of right now, 18th of July 1992
14:10:38 <ynpvisitor54> Isn't that before you were born DG?
14:10:53 <ynpvisitor999> yes
14:11:07 <Michael> Trying to remember 1992. That might have been the summer F&M refused to erupt in daylight.
14:11:09 <ynpvisitor999> ~8 years
14:11:33 <Michael> Grand
14:11:55 <ynpvisitor999> not really, as the 18th of July has an F&M @ 1741
14:13:44 <Michael> Everything blends together after a while. Can't remember which years had false Beehive indicators any more, either. At the time it made a huge impression...
14:14:20 <ynpvisitor999> actually, early August - early September 1992 had a lot of false Indicators
14:14:36 <ynpvisitor999> and thus rendered BH dormant
14:15:37 <ynpvisitor999> couple of mid-cycle Indy's before that aswell
14:17:02 <Michael> Yup, and very some short Beehive intervals. So when BHI popped up at 8.5 hours, it seemed early but not outlandishly so.
14:17:23 <Michael> I still get uneasy when Beehive drops under 10 hour intervals
14:19:01 <ynpvisitor999> There were a couple of durations records aswell. So far I've entered a West Triplet with a duration of 1 second and a Sawmill of 2 seconds
14:20:06 <Michael> I guess that's one splash each?
14:20:28 <ynpvisitor999> think so
14:22:17 <ynpvisitor999> further, the first ever entered Boardwalk eruption was on May 8th @ 1343
14:23:16 <Michael> Neat! What was it called then?
14:24:45 <ynpvisitor999> a number of names, initially UNNG SE [of] Sponge (for most of the year so far), UNNG near Plate and UNNG NE [of] Sponge
14:25:47 <ynpvisitor999> a couple of times I've seen 'Boardwalk' without one of the three above
14:26:33 <ynpvisitor999> also UNNG near Sponge
14:26:55 <ynpvisitor999> UNNG SW Sponge
14:28:40 <ynpvisitor999> New UNNG, too
14:30:40 <Graham> hopefully there was only one UNNG and that Coronette, Park Place, Slit, and UNNG next to Slit weren't active at the same time
14:34:13 <ynpvisitor999> well... according to the Geysers of Yellowstone, a geyser called Second New Thing was probably active along Boardwalk and was later called Park Place
14:37:10 <kcmule> cute
14:37:15 <ynpvisitor92> SE NW and SW can't all be the same thing can they?
14:37:47 <ynpvisitor999> dunno, but they all are referred to as Boardwalk in the log
14:37:57 <Michael> I liked the mashup of suggested names: UNNGabruptwalk.
14:38:10 <ynpvisitor999> :)
14:38:31 <Michael> SE, SW, NW...Our sense of direction isn't very good.
14:39:03 <ynpvisitor999> I've actually entered their UNNG-whatever name with the entry, for future research
14:39:29 <ynpvisitor999> if BW ever becomes active again
14:39:29 <Michael> That's a good idea.
14:41:24 <ynpvisitor999> further, July the 17th and 18th saw some activity from Kitten Geyser/UNNG-GHG-10. It acted as a sort of indicator for Lion initials
14:45:01 <ynpvisitor999> anyway, got to go
14:45:35 <Michael> OK. Thanks for indulging my 25-year flashbacks.
14:53:55 <kcmule> OF
16:26:17 <kcmule> OF
16:41:12 <ynpvisitor4> Daisy
16:41:15 <Graham> daisy
17:36:40 <Michael> For a moment I thought castle had started.
17:41:33 <kcmule> think harder
17:43:08 <Michael> Should have taken telekinesis lessons.
17:52:16 <kcmule> i heard of a professor who taught that. carrie something
17:54:41 <kcmule> OF
17:54:43 <Michael> OF
18:07:18 <kcmule> castle
18:07:30 <Michael> Now I think it's going again.
18:09:09 <kcmule> hopefully will hang around
18:16:35 <kcmule> good castle
18:25:04 <kcmule> good sunset show for folks on the bw
18:31:28 <ynpvisitor6> How long did it take you to get home Monday kc?
18:32:41 <kcmule> 11 hrs
18:35:13 <ynpvisitor6> HK said it was pretty ugly where he was. I am glad I had a place to spend the night.
18:37:42 <kcmule> time to start thinking texas 2024
18:42:27 <ynpvisitor6> Funny thing is the place I was stationed in Texas is in the path of totality.
18:49:11 <ynpvisitor100> Kevin is six, I thought he was older then that.
18:49:59 <ynpvisitor6> I sure feel older.
18:51:36 <ynpvisitor6> On the iPad with a bad wifi connection. I may end up with another number.
18:52:55 <ynpvisitor100> Our Eclipse was just a fiasco. 2 places had a bit of traffic before. After it was over, traffic was like a 3 day weekend for several hours. All the places they said would be backed up were deserted, as the locals were scared to death by all the fuss before.
18:58:18 <ynpvisitor100> Enjoy Aurum if your connection stays up.
19:09:17 <kcmule> lion ie ini
20:20:16 <ynpvisitor85> Lion ie
20:22:44 <ynpvisitor85> And Grand
20:23:46 <ynpvisitor35> Grand 2216. Grand start.
20:24:39 <ynpvisitor85> Is that you,Art?
20:25:08 <ynpvisitor35> Yup
20:25:44 <ynpvisitor35> Just stopped
20:25:48 <ynpvisitor85> Betty here. Can you wave with your flashlight?
20:26:23 <ynpvisitor35> 2nd burst
20:26:25 <ynpvisitor35> !!
20:26:55 <ynpvisitor85> Cool
20:29:20 <ynpvisitor85> I'm lagged on my pad, so it was nice to see you waving AND the 2nd bürsten :-)
20:29:34 <ynpvisitor85> Burst
21:26:59 <ynpvisitor66> BH
21:27:14 <ynpvisitor35> Lion
21:28:26 <ynpvisitor66> Not BH
21:29:54 <ynpvisitor26> At least we have customers at BH. Hope they stay.
21:31:54 <ynpvisitor35> I think I'm the only person out here. Strolled over to Lion to keep awake ;)
21:33:33 <Art> Moon set so it's pretty dark
21:34:02 <ynpvisitor26> Be interesting to see what the cam looks like once we get a moon again.
21:35:09 <Art> Not sure if flashlight is helpful on the new cam?
21:35:42 <ynpvisitor26> At least you can see something.
21:38:14 <Art> Daytime bee crowds have been nuts
21:42:52 <ynpvisitor26> When I was there you could hardly move. I was at Depression and I could barely see it.
21:47:09 <Art> Hopefully that dies down this week. Fingers crossed
21:48:11 <ynpvisitor26> I think there was a big eclipse crowd. I think it should start clearing. School starting will also help.
