22:24:37 <ynpvisitor41> snowy again
22:26:20 <ynpvisitor41> I checked that aurora site, but it looked like Canada was the most likely to get an Aurora
05:12:40 <ynpvisitor111> Is castle in?
05:12:59 <ynpvisitor111> Ie?
05:13:47 <ynpvisitor63> IT has been steaming for quite some time hard to tell when it started
05:19:44 <ynpvisitor63> Here we go again...https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/10/12/yellowstone-supervolcano-may-blow-sooner-than-thought-could-wipe-out-life-planet/757337001/
05:20:41 <ynpvisitor69> Snipes says that report going around is bogus
05:20:49 <ynpvisitor69> Or snopes
05:20:57 <ynpvisitor63> try again https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/10/12/yellowstone-supervolcano-may-blow-sooner-than-thought-could-wipe-out-life-planet/757337001/
05:21:43 <ynpvisitor69> Lots of orgs ran it wit out checking it
05:25:55 <ynpvisitor63> I think the news orgs should be called something else... They are certainly not the news.
05:30:12 <ynpvisitor111> Was castle a minor? Didn't seem to have steam phase but I can't tell for sure
05:31:57 <ynpvisitor69> Looks like it's in steam phase now
05:37:14 <ynpvisitor111> You're right. Chat feed has frozen for me. Been going to NPS feed and didn't stay long enough.
06:12:58 <ynpvisitor69> 18h Grand interval, wow
07:08:22 <ynpvisitor34> bee seems quiet, maybe just missed or have you seen splashes?
07:09:21 <Kevin L™> It looked steamy about an hour ago. Haven't been keeping a close enough watch to say though.
07:09:45 <Kevin L™> Haven't seen a close up this morning.
07:10:16 <Kevin L™> There is a splash
07:11:03 <ynpvisitor34> guess steam is just lining up with Lion
07:16:50 <ynpvisitor34> maybe we don't have a driver today
07:17:20 <Kevin L™> It was zoomed on Grand.
07:48:16 <ynpvisitor63> Did not see BH on the overnight capture, but there were a few periods when nothing but OF was visible...so your guess is probably better than mine.
07:49:30 <Kevin L™> With the big splash at 0910 I suspect it didn't go yet.
07:50:26 <ynpvisitor63> It looks like winter out there, but the benches arent covered so Graham would say no! :)
07:51:08 <Kevin L™> Too much snow for me!
07:51:55 <ynpvisitor63> Yes I think you have told us how much you love the desert.
08:06:03 <ynpvisitor34> fluffy
08:06:27 <ynpvisitor34> oh that made bee steam
08:37:51 <ynpvisitor34> so are bubblers active at bee or have they Zoomed in yet?
09:04:19 <ynpvisitor63> Indy?
09:04:56 <ynpvisitor63> Nope
09:11:01 <ynpvisitor34> bee just doesn't seem very splashy
09:17:59 <ynpvisitor34> wow, did you see that, the cam moved
09:19:42 <ynpvisitor52> Not in the right direction.
09:20:05 <ynpvisitor34> they are watching for Daisy
09:21:02 <ynpvisitor34> well enjoy
09:21:12 <ynpvisitor34> tired of long distance viewing
09:21:18 <ynpvisitor34> will hope for indy text
09:21:29 <ynpvisitor34> although today may be a no indy day
09:22:10 <ynpvisitor63> There may not be a text sender on duty.
09:31:53 <Kitt> morning
09:32:00 <Kitt> no snow here, yay
09:32:25 <Kitt> Did they ever find an eruption of Beehive over night?
09:33:23 <ynpvisitor63> Did not see one, but there were a few periods where very little could be seen.
09:34:18 <Kitt> hmm
09:35:42 <ynpvisitor63> Around 0335 looked very iffy
09:36:17 <ynpvisitor63> But most likely not
09:37:11 <Graham> nice bit of snow
09:37:24 <Graham> did you get some Kitt?
09:37:40 <Kitt> no thank goodness
09:38:05 <Graham> its just not letting me be me today
09:38:07 <Kitt> Bill has to blow out the sprinkler today
09:38:27 <Kitt> you will forever be number 98
09:38:51 <Graham> thats better
09:41:18 <Kitt> I feel the bubblers would be erupting if the interval was a long one, but can't tell from this distance
09:42:14 <Kitt> Maybe Bee will just start
09:43:03 <Kitt> if it went around 0330 then we are at the 8 plus hour mark
09:47:51 <Kitt> Old Faithful
09:49:34 <Graham> short?
09:50:08 <Kitt> wow deja vu
09:50:20 <Kitt> that happened yesterday then we got indy
09:50:54 <Kitt> I don't see bubblers, do you?
09:51:15 <ynpvisitor52> Great. Closeup of BH
09:53:03 <Kitt> yes, but bee not splashy, splashy
09:54:16 <Kitt> Daisy not liking the breeze today
09:55:57 <Graham> had long intervals yesterday too
09:56:20 <ynpvisitor74> not near the wind of yesterday
09:57:16 <ynpvisitor74> Poof
09:57:54 <Kitt> Daisy
10:00:30 <Kitt> bye
10:00:42 <Kitt> hope we get an indicator
10:54:19 <Graham> of
11:16:53 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon everyone
11:19:27 <ynpvisitor63> Hi DG
11:20:29 <ynpvisitor999> .
11:21:36 <ynpvisitor63> Do you see something?
11:21:57 <ynpvisitor999> no, it said I quit, but I didn't
11:22:38 <ynpvisitor63> Yep, that happens a lot.
11:22:49 <ynpvisitor999> I just put in a dot to show that I'm still around
11:32:10 <Graham> splashy
11:50:45 <ynpvisitor63> DG, what are the keystrokes that you use for the right facing green arrow?
12:13:10 <Kent> Just returned from Southern Utah, Northern Arizona. Snow on the boardwalk in NOT a good thing!
12:14:22 <Graham> nice, what did you get up to there?
12:16:06 <Kent> Rainbow Bridge, North Rim, Zion. Wonderful!
12:17:03 <Graham> any snow yet at N Rim? dont they close erly too?
12:18:49 <Kent> No snow, wind but very nice temps. Lots of invasive bison. Concessions close on the 15th, but the park will remain open until snow blocks the road.
12:19:47 <Graham> i bet this is the best time to visit
12:19:51 <Kevin L™> How crowded wa Zion?
12:19:55 <Kevin L™> ws
12:19:59 <Kevin L™> was
12:20:12 <Kevin L™> Glue fumes again. :P
12:20:56 <Kent> Still lots of people in Zion. Shuttles very crowded. Wonderful time to visit.
12:21:20 <Kevin L™> Were the autumn colors out?
12:22:06 <Kent> Some out. some passed. Most North Rim aspens bare.
12:23:46 <Kevin L™> I like this time of year. We have some property just outside the entrance. I need to get up there sometime and work on it a bit.
12:27:00 <Kent> Fall in the Red-
12:27:19 <Kent> Rock country is really very nice.
12:29:26 <Kevin L™> No Aurum report for over 2 days.
12:34:36 <ynpvisitor999> @ 63, it is a hyphen (-) and a greater than sign (>) next to eachother, like - > (but without the space)
12:34:44 <ynpvisitor999> >*
12:35:06 <ynpvisitor999> (>)*
12:35:32 <ynpvisitor999> odd... putting > and ) next to eachother produces ;)
12:37:13 <Graham> of
12:37:17 <ynpvisitor999> 1436
12:39:51 <Kent> 1439 and no Fluffy. Some delay!
12:41:12 <Kent> OF 1440.35 on my screen
12:42:03 <ynpvisitor63> DG, Dutch keyboard?
12:42:15 <ynpvisitor999> that 4m of delay - (Spoiler alert) eruption will last about 3m54s and OF will try to do a short around the 1m50s mark.
12:43:02 <ynpvisitor999> no, coded in the chat - try to do the green arrow yourself by typing - and > next to eachother
12:43:39 <ynpvisitor63> OK,thanks
12:44:10 <ynpvisitor63> ->
12:45:24 <Kevin L™> There are some for weather too but I don't remember them
12:45:58 <ynpvisitor999> icons for in the chat?
12:46:17 <Kent> Prefer Green Lantern but Green Arrow is OK
12:46:34 <ynpvisitor63> I learn something new every day, not bad for 72 :)
12:46:37 <Kevin L™> Yes
12:46:56 <Kent> :)
12:48:09 <Kevin L™> I think snow was *** bracketed by some character.
12:48:13 <Kent> Got to go unload my car, but I want fall back!!!
12:49:19 <ynpvisitor63> Graham says its still fall, the benches are not covered.
12:54:24 <ynpvisitor63> >>>
12:55:08 <ynpvisitor63> :cloudly:
12:56:04 <ynpvisitor63> 0=
12:56:24 <Graham> thats true, not winter till benches are covered or its below zero for highs
12:56:57 <ynpvisitor999> I think we have a Lion ini soon
12:57:01 <ynpvisitor68> ///
13:01:09 <ynpvisitor999> Turban?
13:02:58 <ynpvisitor68> no non-wc times today
13:05:25 <Graham> white stuff scared the few gazers away
13:06:07 <ynpvisitor68> or maybe closed roads - read that on YTG
13:09:22 <ynpvisitor63> [-x
13:20:42 <ynpvisitor999> Grand
13:20:45 <Graham> grand
13:20:45 <ynpvisitor63> RAND
13:20:52 <ynpvisitor63> G
13:21:19 <ynpvisitor999> looks like the steam I saw @ 1501 was likely from Turban
13:26:18 <ynpvisitor74> now there is a non wc time on GT
13:28:52 <ynpvisitor68> nice
13:29:05 <ynpvisitor999> 9m mark
13:29:33 <ynpvisitor999> quiet
13:29:55 <ynpvisitor999> give us a second, Grand
13:30:40 <ynpvisitor74> so kind of a short one burst
13:32:11 <ynpvisitor999> there's still the possiblilty of an afterburst
13:33:26 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy trying
13:40:02 <ynpvisitor999> and the chances for an afterburst are now basically 0
13:42:15 <ynpvisitor16> I'll stick my neck out and guess BH ~1800 +- 1 hour
13:57:11 <ynpvisitor74> I thought they were close to zero from the end of the first burst.
13:58:26 <ynpvisitor999> an afterburst can occur up to about 10m after the main eruption has ended, if I'mnot mistaken
13:59:21 <ynpvisitor74> rare
13:59:52 <ynpvisitor999> though it is pretty much a rare sight
13:59:58 <ynpvisitor68> I've never seen one because I always pack up and leave
14:00:13 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy trying again
14:00:30 <ynpvisitor74> as do most gazers, the only one I ever saw I was at Spasmodic and turned around with a radio call.
14:01:37 <ynpvisitor74> I wonder what year that was. MBS would have entered it into the log book at OF
14:01:55 <ynpvisitor16> Which GMRS channel do they use.
14:02:02 <ynpvisitor74> 4.5
14:02:18 <ynpvisitor16> tks
14:03:43 <Graham> i thought they only happened with long Grand eruptions
14:04:23 <ynpvisitor68> long meaning multiple bursts?
14:04:23 <ynpvisitor999> Aurum!
14:07:02 <ynpvisitor74> I do not recall how many bursts had happened before the after burst
14:07:14 <Graham> i wonder where Kevin was
14:07:22 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy?
14:07:36 <Graham> no
14:07:38 <ynpvisitor74> if it's Daisy I am on delay
14:07:38 <ynpvisitor999> and nope
14:07:51 <ynpvisitor999> another failed try :(
14:09:56 <Graham> lion instead
14:10:01 <ynpvisitor999> Lion ini
14:10:12 <ynpvisitor999> 1609
14:22:06 <Graham> of
14:22:20 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1621; powerful start
14:26:24 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
14:26:26 <ynpvisitor999> FINALLY
14:26:50 <Graham> 4h29m interval
14:30:16 <Graham> got to step away, cam is where you all want it :)
14:30:28 <Graham> should be back in 15min
14:30:37 <ynpvisitor999> see you then, Graham
14:45:45 <Kevin L™> Well I see Aurum knew I was gone.
14:52:20 <ynpvisitor5> Bubblers
14:56:46 <ynpvisitor999> Riverside
14:58:34 <ynpvisitor74> BH could be after dark...
15:14:28 <ynpvisitor68> bee about 13ish hours now - we are guessing?
15:38:54 <Graham> bee has been pretty splashy
15:45:05 <ynpvisitor68> when is it too dark to see on cam these days?
15:45:29 <ynpvisitor999> splashy splash...
15:45:41 <ynpvisitor113> hi honeybee
15:48:28 <ynpvisitor113> fluffy in preplay
15:48:47 <ynpvisitor113> oops erupting
15:51:13 <ynpvisitor113> a long
16:09:29 <ynpvisitor999> yesterday I posted the first image of an infobox, here's the updated version: https://s5.postimg.org/7r9h3mk1j/Yet_another_random_infobox.png
16:22:12 <ynpvisitor74> the cone is not too white anymore! That is nice.
16:26:43 <ynpvisitor74> are you posting on GOSA or is this your own thing?
16:26:45 <ynpvisitor74> Lion
16:27:49 <ynpvisitor74> Lion with people!
16:45:00 <Kevin L™> Lot of Depression steam
16:51:20 <ynpvisitor68> should connect 999 with gosa - the site could use some help imo
16:59:49 <ynpvisitor74> I agree
17:00:57 <ynpvisitor68> he is doing a lot of work - might as well channel it somewhere!
17:03:28 <ynpvisitor74> that's why I asked what it is for
17:04:10 <ynpvisitor68> I think it's the middle of the night where he is, understandable why he left!
17:15:34 <ynpvisitor74> oh right, he left before reading what I wrote. Maybe he will read this log tomorrow
17:17:59 <Graham> downbasin steam
17:18:15 <Graham> probably just Grotto
17:18:35 <ynpvisitor74> I love that it is dark out and the cam still shows it is light
17:25:40 <ynpvisitor74> well, no BH, good night
17:28:14 <Kevin L™> No BH makes it a bad night!
17:53:13 <ynpvisitor91> steamy Castle
17:53:43 <ynpvisitor91> Castle ie
18:00:30 <Kevin L™> 3.9 eq Lincoln MT
18:01:29 <ynpvisitor91> what does that mean Kevin?
18:01:46 <ynpvisitor91> oh earthquake?
18:02:23 <Kevin L™> The earth is shaking north of the park
18:03:00 <ynpvisitor91> maybe bee didn't erupt, maybe Graham put it into dormancy
18:03:43 <Kevin L™> http://quake.utah.edu/station/heli/YMR.png
20:33:23 <ynpvisitor5> Nice auruora
21:04:27 <ynpvisitor77> where is the aurora?
21:04:45 <ynpvisitor77> I see light from West Yellowstone
21:09:37 <ynpvisitor82> Aurora is to the right side. It comes and goes.
21:12:27 <ynpvisitor82> It is there now
21:15:56 <ynpvisitor77> is it the light cloud with the 2 stars/planets?
21:16:45 <ynpvisitor82> Yes
21:18:04 <ynpvisitor82> You can see it over West now
21:20:38 <ynpvisitor77> I thought the two patches were clouds since they look like the steam from Old Faithful
21:21:09 <ynpvisitor77> Old Faithful
21:21:50 <ynpvisitor77> so the last OF was a short also
21:24:24 <ynpvisitor77> if the 1937 eruption was a short then why was the next eruption at 2213?
