22:29:47 <Eric@OF> Hi
22:29:57 <ynpvisitor56> You made it!
22:30:10 <ynpvisitor56> Kevin iPad
22:30:25 <Eric@OF> I did!
22:31:13 <Eric@OF> That's me standing in front of the cam
22:31:25 <ynpvisitor56> Sounds like Steamboat may be about ready.
22:32:20 <Eric@OF> Hope it waits until morning 😁
22:32:35 <ynpvisitor56> Still light enough that it is color.
22:33:14 <Eric@OF> Yep, great moon
22:34:12 <Eric@OF> Alright, hitting the hay... night
22:35:13 <ynpvisitor56> Kilauea is lit up like a Christmas tree. Can't find a live feed. Wondering if it got the power facility.
22:35:26 <ynpvisitor56> Goo Knight
05:04:59 <ynpvisitor16> Will their be ANY GT posts from people there today? ;)
05:05:20 <Betty> nope
05:06:28 <Betty> which I can totally understand :-)
05:06:56 <ynpvisitor16> Haha yes

06:39:48 <Betty> Plume area is very steamy
06:44:09 <Betty> BH
06:44:38 <Betty> OF
06:44:48 <Betty> no
06:44:56 <Betty> now
06:45:37 <Betty> wow
06:46:14 <Betty> both are nice
06:49:36 <ynpvisitor3> Pretty interesting - Memorial Day weekend and not a single gazer on the hill for Beehive. Wish I was where they are!
06:49:59 <Betty> me too
06:51:49 <Betty> did you see that steam column at NG 3 min ago?
06:52:24 <Betty> got me excited
06:52:45 <Betty> anyway, have to leave now. Enjoy the day
07:06:21 <ynpvisitor85> North Goggle
07:07:07 <ynpvisitor30> 3rd in series!
07:10:37 <ynpvisitor28> North Goggles obviously knos Graham is coming!
07:14:35 <Kevin L™> Eric made it to OF last Knight. He went out and posed in front of the cam.
07:20:11 <ynpvisitor21> N Goggles is erupting and no gazers in the basin!
07:21:18 <ynpvisitor21> This might be the only Saturday of Mem Day weekend where we will ever see that happen
07:23:30 <ynpvisitor16> Gooooo NG!
07:23:35 <ynpvisitor85> Great camera position
07:23:37 <ynpvisitor16> Wow
07:23:52 <ynpvisitor21> Graham decided to drive to Norris last night instead of his planned hotel in Belgrade
07:25:51 <ynpvisitor999®> yay! NGG
07:26:24 <ynpvisitor21> He was too worried he might miss Steamboat. Now he is missing NG
07:26:58 <ynpvisitor999®> how are the Lion majors looking?
07:27:34 <ynpvisitor21> Beautiful day for Steamboat. I hope it erupts for everyone
07:28:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Steamboat interval is nearing my lower window limit of 0948
07:28:27 <James St. John> FYI, I'm saving screen capture video clips of a couple of these North Goggles eruptions. Check GT for attachment links in a little while.
07:28:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Thanks James :)
07:28:52 <ynpvisitor21> That last one was great
07:29:03 <James St. John> If I can't see it in person, web camera is the next best thing.
07:29:14 <James St. John> Will be in Yellowstone by the 1st of June.
07:29:30 <ynpvisitor21> Especially with cam close up
07:29:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope you can catch Steamboat, James
07:30:08 <ynpvisitor21> You can be there for the next Steamboat watch
07:33:59 <ynpvisitor999®> BA
07:35:43 <James St. John> Steamboat, if it continues to behave, might be catchable. Giant - dunno. I'm envious that Micah and company got to see a daytime Giant in early May.
07:37:22 <James St. John> Next North Goggles may be in a few minutes.
07:37:42 <ynpvisitor999®> 3m or so
07:37:58 <ynpvisitor999®> last intervals were all 17m
07:38:57 <ynpvisitor999®> big window there for NGG :D
07:40:32 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
07:40:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
07:41:24 <ynpvisitor999®> climb, Lion, climb
07:42:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome on static?
07:43:19 <ynpvisitor30> Look at GT
07:43:38 <James St. John> North Goggles continues to behave.
07:43:39 <ynpvisitor999®> I just saw it appearing in the widget. Thanks for verifiying
07:44:35 <ynpvisitor21> Will NG continue now that Lion erupted?
07:45:28 <ynpvisitor30> Good question, there is a good chance but we'll have to wait and see.
07:45:55 <ynpvisitor999®> if I recall correctly, as long as the Lion series continues, NG should be continueing its series. Once Lion series ends, NG series ends shortly thereafter.
07:46:21 <ynpvisitor21> Thanks
07:46:40 <ynpvisitor999®> though don't fully count on it, as it's a geyser
07:46:51 <James St. John> Last time it did this, it had 8 minor eruptions with >1 hour intervals at first, which shortened through the series.
07:46:52 <ynpvisitor999®> nice Depression
07:47:01 <ynpvisitor21> I sure hope Steamboat erupts for everyone missing the NG action
07:47:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Sprinkler
07:48:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
07:48:41 <ynpvisitor999®> this is the most recent day NG was active before today: https://geysertimes.org/date.php?date=2017-09-08
07:49:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion's long series started @ 2323 the day before
07:51:12 <ynpvisitor21> DG, can you tell from graphs if Steamboat is doing anything?
07:51:41 <ynpvisitor999®> nothing on seismo yet that looks Steamboaty
07:51:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll have a look in the HOBO files from Bill
07:52:15 <ynpvisitor21> Are those updated ?
07:52:32 <ynpvisitor999®> they are every few days or so
07:54:57 <ynpvisitor999®> most recent files date back to May 21
07:55:17 <ynpvisitor999®> so no new files yet, unfortunately
07:58:37 <ynpvisitor21> So the idea that you need a really long Lion series for NG to happen may not be correct
07:59:14 <ynpvisitor21> At least not this time
07:59:33 <ynpvisitor30> You are more likely to see North Goggle at teh time of a long Lion series but it is not an absolute.
08:01:06 <ynpvisitor21> Thanks. What makes it a major, height or duration?
08:02:00 <ynpvisitor30> both -- height about 25 feet and duration upto 3 minutes
08:02:22 <ynpvisitor21> That would be fun
08:03:02 <ynpvisitor30> it is but unfortunately it is quite rare
08:03:44 <ynpvisitor21> Maybe it’s waking up. It’s been rare geyser season so far...
08:04:33 <ynpvisitor30> Always have to have something special for Memorial Day Weekend
08:08:27 <James St. John> Grand Geyser.
08:10:58 <ynpvisitor21> Will we miss the next NG?
08:11:15 <ynpvisitor30> no
08:11:46 <ynpvisitor21> Great
08:14:03 <James St. John> Old Faithful
08:14:24 <ynpvisitor30> that could cause us to miss NG
08:14:27 <James St. John> North Goggles may be obscured.
08:16:41 <James St. John> Dunno if it was back there during OF's eruption or not.
08:17:08 <James St. John> North Goggles should've been at 1014 or 1015, if it was behaving.
08:17:29 <ynpvisitor21> It was pretty consistent there
08:18:08 <ynpvisitor21> Let’s hope it keeps going
08:19:24 <James St. John> Regardless, it was cool seeing it active.
08:21:20 <ynpvisitor999®> ng
08:21:28 <James St. John> North Goggles.
08:22:04 <James St. John> Interesting - intervals are lengthening now. Last fall, internvals shortened through the series.
08:22:35 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope this is a one-off interval
08:31:55 <ynpvisitor999®> isn't the 0832 NG the start of the series?
08:33:39 <ynpvisitor30> Sorry I clicked the wrong eruption when I updated teh entry. It has been corrected now.
08:36:12 <ynpvisitor16> Let's see a major!
08:37:57 <ynpvisitor27> let's hope it is not over
08:38:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion trying
08:39:01 <ynpvisitor27> Lion huffing
08:40:33 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully the next NG kickstarts Lion
08:43:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
08:43:22 <ynpvisitor27> nice
08:43:50 <ynpvisitor27> wow
08:43:56 <ynpvisitor999®> powerful for this far in the series
08:44:07 <ynpvisitor999®> almost initial-like heights
08:44:39 <ynpvisitor27> that's impressive
08:45:33 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope this is a wave of energy which'll reach Giantess in the next few days
08:45:52 <ynpvisitor27> ha, I would just like another NG
08:46:00 <ynpvisitor999®> fair enough :)
08:46:22 <ynpvisitor27> Depression was big too, must be some extra energy there somewhere
08:46:55 <ynpvisitor999®> 3½m for Lion
08:49:23 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe this is the start of something seen in October of 2009 - where Lion had long series of sometimes more than 30
08:49:39 <ynpvisitor999®> eruptions
08:50:21 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
08:50:22 <ynpvisitor27> yes!!
08:50:34 <James St. John> North Goggles.
08:51:02 <ynpvisitor999®> ½m-ish
08:51:17 <ynpvisitor27> still going though...
08:52:50 <ynpvisitor30> That was a big "minor"
08:53:10 <James St. John> North Goggles intervals are increasing again.
08:53:37 <ynpvisitor999®> though it seems we're getting larger eruptions
08:54:27 <James St. John> FYI, I added attachments to 4 of the posted GT eruptions. The 0906 video clip just caught the end only.
08:54:47 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll have a look
08:56:19 <Michael> I'm late to the party.
08:57:25 <Michael> I've never seen (and as far as I know never heard of) North Goggle intervals under 30 mins before.
08:57:40 <ynpvisitor30> When I'm on webcam duty I can't post edited video of the eruptions without NPS permission. They will show up tonight when today's archive is posted.
08:58:29 <ynpvisitor999®> that's unfortunate
08:58:39 <ynpvisitor30> Michael, I remember seeing 17 to 20 minute intervals in the 90's a couple times but not since then.
08:59:36 <ynpvisitor999®> I find it remarkable that no-one has entered in-basin times yet
09:00:27 <Michael> Interesting info, 30.
09:00:48 <ynpvisitor30> Haven't seen any gazers int eh basin yet. Not even at Beehive. Either they are someplace else (Steamboat probably) or cell phones are down in the basin
09:01:42 <Michael> Well, I wouldn't be in the Upper Basin today if I had a choice in the matter.
09:01:48 <ynpvisitor999®> saying that, 1007 Grand G1Q in-basin
09:01:53 <ynpvisitor110> My bet is that they are at Steamboat.
09:01:55 <ynpvisitor999®> G1C*
09:03:02 <ynpvisitor30> I think that is an NPS entry. They have to be in the basin.
09:03:26 <ynpvisitor27> yep, she works there
09:03:48 <ynpvisitor27> cell works fine, they are all at Steamboat
09:04:34 <ynpvisitor27> If I had to bet, I'd say they are taking up at least 1/4 of parking spaces if not more
09:05:02 <ynpvisitor27> a lot of them have been out there all night
09:05:29 <James St. John> Considering Steamboat has been reluctant to show up in daytime, I'd be up for a midnight vigil, too.
09:05:55 <ynpvisitor27> I only hope it does not hold them hostage all weekend
09:06:06 <ynpvisitor27> every time you think you have a geyser figured out, it changes
09:06:15 <James St. John> Lots of geysers have held me hostage over the years.
09:06:19 <James St. John> But I don't mind.
09:06:49 <James St. John> Pink Cone is a good example.
09:07:00 <James St. John> Once I see an eruption start, it's tough to just go after a while.
09:07:06 <James St. John> I like to see the end & get a duration.
09:07:15 <James St. John> But 1.5 hours is a tad long sometimes.
09:08:49 <Michael> The excitement of waiting for Steamboat should keep people going through the first day.
09:09:22 <Michael> If there's no eruption by nightfall, that's when it gets tricky.
09:09:23 <ynpvisitor27> if it does not go before dark, there will be many disappointed gazers
09:09:37 <ynpvisitor27> some are not up for the night watch, or able
09:10:00 <James St. John> Yep.
09:10:01 <ynpvisitor999®> it seems to be the case this NG series is not earthquake-induced, as I can't find an earthquake big enough that could cause new geyser behavior
09:10:10 <ynpvisitor27> we won't be getting any updates, as if you leave the parking lot you are not getting back in
09:10:24 <James St. John> What was the record? A lady waited 59 days at Steamboat once?
09:10:36 <ynpvisitor27> no way
09:10:41 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it was in the order of years?
09:10:44 <ynpvisitor27> is that true? Not all night...
09:10:58 <James St. John> Decades ago.
09:11:01 <ynpvisitor27> did she finally get it?
09:11:02 <Michael> Something like that. Her name was Helen Decker. That's probably enough to look it up.
09:11:03 <James St. John> Camped/slept nearby.
09:11:14 <James St. John> Nope - she didn't bag it.
09:11:56 <ynpvisitor27> wow, that is unfortunate
09:12:29 <James St. John> Catching my first up-close Aurum was frustrating. Waited 9 hours next to it before giving up.
09:12:42 <James St. John> The next time I tried, only had to wait about 20-30 minutes.
09:12:59 <Michael> Aurum on long intervals is maddening.
09:13:04 <ynpvisitor27> you must have showed up right after an eruption
09:13:11 <James St. John> In hindsight - yes.
09:13:21 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
09:13:31 <James St. John> North Goggles.
09:13:33 <ynpvisitor27> this is a great series
09:13:42 <ynpvisitor999®> seems like NG hesitated a bit there
09:13:56 <ynpvisitor27> brief
09:14:00 <James St. John> All are less than half a minute long.
09:14:15 <ynpvisitor999®> at least people were there to watch it, 27 :)
09:14:31 <Michael> Nice! I wish it would come out to play more often.
09:14:35 <ynpvisitor27> yes, nice for them though they have no idea what they are seeing is rare
09:15:26 <James St. John> I tried convincing someone how cool it was to see Old Cone Geyser erupting, near Fountain.
09:15:32 <James St. John> It's rare & hard to catch.
09:15:34 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope their guide tells them NG is rare
09:15:38 <James St. John> But eruptions are dinky and not impressive.
09:16:37 <ynpvisitor27> 99% of YNP guides have no idea what NG is
09:17:07 <James St. John> Wish they had a more focused geyser training program for guides/rangers.
09:17:26 <ynpvisitor27> the park is a big place and geysers are only one part of it for guides
09:17:30 <James St. John> It can be a somewhat steep learning curve.
09:17:59 <ynpvisitor27> I agree about OF rangers though
09:18:00 <James St. John> And they get a fair amount of turnover, employee-wise.
09:18:55 <James St. John> I get the impression that crowd control, not nature/science, is the focus of training
09:19:00 <James St. John> That's understandable, though.
09:19:28 <Michael> There's certainly a limit to how much geyser minutiae can be part of their job.
09:19:47 <James St. John> But geysers are the "definition" of Yellowstone Park.
09:20:00 <Craig> Did somebody say North Goggles?
09:20:07 <James St. John> Oh yeah.
09:20:08 <ynpvisitor27> for OF interps, I think it should be more of a focus
09:21:54 <James St. John> 9 North Goggles eruptions so far in the series. It was 8 last fall.
09:23:47 <ynpvisitor30> Actually it was 9, I just found one that hadn't been reported.
09:24:06 <James St. John> Back in the fall?
09:24:16 <ynpvisitor30> yes
09:24:29 <Michael> Lion is still in series, which may or may not mean that North Goggles has a better chance to go again.
09:24:29 <James St. John> Right - 9. My bad.
09:24:47 <Craig> Longest lion series in awhile
09:27:05 <Michael> Dome ie again.
09:27:38 <ynpvisitor21> Dave, shouldn’t the last NG be listed as a minor?
09:32:37 <ynpvisitor30> yes
09:32:39 <Craig> LC
09:33:38 <Michael> I'm usually too lazy to track Little Cub, but this is a good day to do it.
09:35:38 <Michael> At first glance it isn't doing anything out of character.
09:36:51 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
09:36:57 <James St. John> North Goggles.
09:37:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion seems to be trying
09:37:29 <James St. John> Ten!
09:37:38 <Craig> Ooh!
09:37:42 <ynpvisitor27> thanks Dave for having the shift today. We have really been able to see it up close
09:38:09 <Michael> Seconded.
09:38:48 <ynpvisitor27> OF might obscure the next one
09:38:59 <Craig> huh how did you do that?
09:39:20 <ynpvisitor999®> ./gts geysername intervals
09:39:44 <Michael> Left-to-right breeze should help us out.
09:39:47 <ynpvisitor27> wind direction has changed though
09:39:47 <ynpvisitor999®> where geysername is the name of the geyser and intervals the (optional) number of intervals
09:40:53 <ynpvisitor62> ./gts steamboat 4
09:41:12 <ynpvisitor999®> (you do have to remove the leading dot)
09:42:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Steamboat update: no Steamboat signal on seismo yet
09:43:10 <ynpvisitor999®> there are a lot of other noises near the seismo though, most likely from cars passing by, parking and people talking and walking by
09:43:12 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
09:43:30 <ynpvisitor62> Guess gazer reports will be faster during daytime-and perhaps during the night as well these days;)
09:44:08 <ynpvisitor999®> this is a pretty OF
09:49:47 <Craig> Lion looks like its trying
09:50:23 <Michael> If it comes up with eruption #8, I'll be impressed.
09:51:12 <ynpvisitor999®> I think Lion is waiting for NG
09:53:16 <ynpvisitor21> Does the Tantalus creek graph mean anything about Steamboat?
09:53:37 <Michael> The temprature, basically not.
09:54:03 <ynpvisitor999®> you'd see a spike on the graph, 21
09:54:26 <ynpvisitor21> How about water gauge? It’s spiking
09:54:30 <ynpvisitor999®> temperature doesn't rise when water passes the gauge
09:54:32 <Michael> Steamboat does create a spike in the flow rate about 90 mins later. Rainstorms can create variations just as large, so reader beware.
09:54:58 <ynpvisitor21> No rain today
09:55:17 <ynpvisitor21> Maybe active minors showing up?
09:56:18 <ynpvisitor21> Oh, I guess the spike is in temp
09:58:20 <James St. John> Lion
09:58:26 <James St. John> Little Cub i.e.
09:59:00 <Craig> :lion:
09:59:47 <Craig> tall lion
10:01:03 <James St. John> North Goggles.
10:01:13 <James St. John> Eleven !
10:01:19 <Craig> woo!
10:02:16 <James St. John> All quiet in the Lion area now.
10:11:46 <ynpvisitor25> West Gate is really ugly right now.
10:15:31 <Micah> Oh I see. So I wait there at Lion after a ten eruption series for three hours and North Goggles doesn't do crap.
10:15:44 <Micah> But then Lion has a four eruption series and North Goggle goes "Hi!"
10:15:52 <Micah> I see how that geyser feels about me.
10:15:57 <James St. John> Bummer that Echinus isn't still active like it was in the fall.
10:16:00 <Micah> #rude
10:16:01 <Craig> Lol
10:16:07 <James St. John> Micah saw a Giant - he has nothing to complain about!
10:16:07 <Michael> It's personal. Definitely personal.
10:16:38 <Micah> Your right James. Feather's cooler than North Goggle anyways.
10:16:48 <James St. John> Go Feather !!
10:18:16 <James St. John> Geology in the news - a report that paleontologists have identified fossil dandruff in & among the feathers of feathered dinosaurs.
10:18:45 <James St. John> http://bgr.com/2018/05/25/dinosaur-dandruff-feathered-bird-reptile-study/amp/
10:22:52 <James St. John> 1 or 2 more minutes for another NG, hopefully.
10:25:03 <James St. John> Or not.
10:25:21 <ynpvisitor13> Hi there James St. John, that was interesting about Dinosaurs having dandruff. Amazing what they are discovering. Thanks for sharing.
10:26:16 <Michael> Daisy duly noted.
10:28:22 <Michael> On camera,North Goggles and Grand have a lot in common. You can't tell anything until water is jetting into sight.
10:30:36 <James St. John> Unless North Goggles is done, the next minor is anyone's guess.
10:30:38 <Micah> If North Vent of Steamboat was hitting 50 feet yesterday. I bet those waiting on the platform are gonna have a fun time watching Minors today
10:30:59 <James St. John> Probably a crowded platform there today.
10:31:23 <Micah> Yep.
10:32:02 <James St. John> North Goggles.
10:32:07 <Michael> [sour grapes] Steamboat minor eruption heights are famously easy to overestimate. It was probably 25ft. [/sour grapes]
10:32:12 <Micah> Nice one too.
10:32:16 <James St. John> Using Rocco feet.
10:32:44 <James St. John> 31 minute interval for NG now.
10:32:45 <Micah> Michael do you know how high it would be if it say..got to the height of the trees from the Lower platform?
10:34:00 <Michael> I don't remember the details, unfortunately.
10:34:21 <James St. John> Need to get an inclinometer for the field.
10:34:33 <James St. John> Always wanted to do eruption column heigh measurements.
10:34:42 <James St. John> "height"
10:34:59 <Micah> I can tell you with certainty Anemone hits 10-15 feet.
10:35:07 <James St. John> Really? Wow.
10:35:27 <Micah> oh yeah.
10:35:37 <James St. John> I have to laugh sometimes when I watch BA stinging you during an eruption on one of your youtube videos.
10:36:01 <Micah> Yep.
10:36:13 <Micah> It can hurt.
10:36:17 <James St. John> Fountain has stung me multiple times.
10:36:28 <James St. John> Yes - a bit beyond "ouch".
10:36:29 <Micah> I once had a glob about the size of a softball come down straight onto the mesh of my tennis shoes.
10:36:33 <Micah> sent me hopping.
10:36:38 <Michael> Ow!
10:37:10 <James St. John> My first significant falling hot water sting was during a Fountain-Morning dual in 2013.
10:37:28 <Micah> I've never actually had Fountain hit me.
10:37:40 <James St. John> If the wind is right, it will oblige.
10:38:14 <James St. John> It was supposedly a routine thing decades ago, when a boardwalk/path went around Fountain.
10:38:43 <James St. John> So I've heard.
10:39:24 <ynpvisitor70> I’m surprised that there’s no gazers watching NG (based on WC times). Maybe everyone’s at Norris...
10:39:53 <James St. John> Gotta go get some flint at Flint Ridge. Enjoy the rest of North Goggles' performance.
10:40:42 <Michael> I don't think it does this any more, but Veteran used to sting people on the trail during its major eruptions.
10:40:49 <Micah> Bye JSJ
10:41:05 <Micah> Michael you are correct. I don't think it's had a major since 03'
11:03:58 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
11:04:10 <Micah> Excellent!
11:04:10 <Craig> .
11:04:13 <Craig> :S
11:04:16 <Micah> This is a great series!
11:04:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
11:04:45 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:04:46 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:04:46 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:04:59 <Micah> NIIICE!
11:05:07 <Craig> Woo!
11:05:32 <Micah> We need another lion to put some more potential back in NG
11:06:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Seen the length of Aurum, we probably caught it near start
11:11:30 <Craig> Lion huffing
11:13:21 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
11:16:55 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... it seems Lion's series is close to being done for
11:17:03 <ynpvisitor999®> unless it improves
11:17:12 <Micah> North Goggles probably won't last much longer then.
11:17:20 <Micah> I need to Read the transactions article.
11:19:55 <Michael> In the mid-1990s, most series of NG minors didn't even start until after a Lion series was over.
11:20:01 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
11:20:52 <Michael> Whether that's at all relevant today is anybody's guess.
11:21:37 <Micah> http://www.gosa.org/transactions/GOSA_Transactions13.pdf
11:21:53 <Micah> Demetri's article does a decent job of summarizing what he observed for the 2012 activity.
11:21:58 <Micah> It still seems to hold true today
11:23:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Plate
11:23:26 <Micah> Ooh nice.
11:23:55 <Craig> Go plate!
11:25:51 <ynpvisitor65> Nice to see Plate
11:26:11 <ynpvisitor999®> clear view too
11:26:53 <Micah> I think unless Lion gets its act together in the next few minutes, the series is kaput.
11:29:19 <ynpvisitor999®> nothing on Norris Museum seismo (yet)
11:30:46 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
11:30:58 <ynpvisitor999®> very brief
11:31:02 <Micah> I didn't catch that one.
11:32:03 <ynpvisitor999®> it seems safe to say this Lion series is done for :(
11:32:21 <Micah> Heck of a run though.
11:32:28 <Micah> And these intervals are shorter than most seen in 2012
11:32:32 <Micah> For the NG minors
11:33:38 <ynpvisitor999®> which, if NG behaves like it did last series, means NG's series ends about two to three hours later
11:34:28 <ynpvisitor999®> good Lion attempt there
11:35:44 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe Lion is not yet done for, needing a longer break to get some more water and heat in the system
11:36:22 <Micah> I'd argue it's done, but I'd love to be proven wrong.
11:36:28 <ynpvisitor999®> R'side in window
11:38:04 <Micah> I hope Steamboat obliges the watchers.
11:39:12 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd really like to get an update on Steamboat - like how are the minors doing, many concerted eruptions, etc.
11:39:34 <Micah> I'm sure once we get later in the day and people start trickling back we'll get updates.
11:39:44 <Micah> assuming it doesn't erupt.
11:58:18 <ynpvisitor81> NG
11:58:48 <ynpvisitor81> minio
11:58:55 <ynpvisitor81> minor
12:18:35 <Betty> HA! So I was not fantasizing about NG earlier? :-D
12:22:29 <Kevin L™> You should have stayed.
12:24:04 <Betty> I wanted to leave at 3 my time and did at 5. so I already was way too late to head to my mom.
12:24:15 <Betty> hi Kevin
12:24:52 <Kevin L™> Hi, maybe you will get one
12:26:59 <Betty> yay
12:27:07 <Betty> cool
12:27:08 <ynpvisitor81> NG
12:27:14 <Craig> o/
12:27:20 <Kevin L™> Good one too
12:29:16 <Kevin L™> Poor NG playing to the webcam and uninterested tourists while the gazers are warming benches at Steamboat.
12:29:31 <Kevin L™> I caught Eric on the cam last Knight.
12:30:00 <Betty> so true
12:30:08 <Betty> when was he there?
12:30:24 <Kevin L™> Around midnight.
12:30:37 <Betty> ok, need to check it
12:30:43 <Kevin L™> 0029
12:30:57 <Betty> thx
12:32:10 <ynpvisitor70> NG looks like a smaller version of Aurum
12:32:39 <Kevin L™> But not at an angle
12:36:01 <Kevin L™> Glad you got at least one Betty
12:36:18 <Betty> yep
12:36:54 <Betty> now if the folks only get their Steamboat...
12:40:57 <ynpvisitor16> 1 hour to Steamboat shortest interval
12:42:46 <ynpvisitor70> Ah, I see that Plate is active too
12:43:20 <Kevin L™> And 2 Aurums
12:44:41 <Betty> not a bad gazing day so far.
12:45:19 <Kevin L™> I did catch the BH this morning on the iPad
12:45:37 <Betty> so you got my text
12:46:02 <Betty> the morning was great
12:46:10 <Kevin L™> Didn't get the text until later but woke up at the right time.
12:48:32 <Betty> NG
12:48:35 <Kevin L™> NG?
12:49:06 <Craig> :D
12:49:17 <Betty> OF
12:55:35 <ynpvisitor70> Can NG have a major eruption in these series? Or are those typically stand-alone eruptions?
12:56:01 <ynpvisitor70> *eruptions
13:01:13 <Michael> As I understand it (never seen one), the build-up required for a major makes it more likely to be a stand-alone eruption.
13:02:10 <ynpvisitor70> TY
13:03:08 <Michael> There's a nice article in GOSA Transactions XIII, which can be downloaded off the GOSA website.
13:04:01 <Michael> If my internet service stays up for more than a minute at a time, I'll read it and find out more.
13:04:54 <ynpvisitor70> Thanks. Will check it out as well.
13:05:02 <Betty> wouldn´t it be a great day for Sawmill to wake up again?
13:05:12 <Michael> Yes!
13:05:15 <ynpvisitor70> Or Economic
13:05:25 <Betty> or Plume
13:10:28 <Michael> Apparently in the 2012 activity, major eruptions mostly occurred within a series.
13:10:59 <Craig> BG
13:11:01 <Craig> *NG
13:11:05 <Betty> I love it
13:11:06 <ynpvisitor70> Fingers crossed
13:17:37 <ynpvisitor44> Major eruptions of NG also happen at the end of a long series. This is a long series at. 17 now!:D:D:D
13:18:19 <ynpvisitor44> Majors don’t look anything like Aurum
13:19:44 <Michael> I hope we'll get to do that comparison soon-ish
13:32:52 <Betty> NG
13:47:20 <Betty> NG
13:47:55 <Kevin L™> I blinked
13:48:13 <Betty> it was faster
13:49:56 <ynpvisitor30> Short interval and short duration. I wasn't expecting that one.
13:50:03 <Michael> Fooled me too.
13:50:49 <Betty> sneaky little geyser :-)
13:54:09 <Kevin L™> I am distracted by a movie about a giant gila monster that wrecks vintage cars.
13:55:22 <Kevin L™> So far he nailed a '57 Pontiac, a '40 Ford and a '50's chevy truck.
13:56:56 <Michael> Tow truck driver will have a field day.
13:57:17 <Kevin L™> Good vintage tow truck too.
13:58:21 <Michael> :)
13:59:42 <Betty> LC
14:10:39 <Betty> NG
14:10:40 <Kevin L™> :)
14:10:42 <ynpvisitor80> NG
14:13:47 <Art> At mammoth entrance. Heading to steamboat fingers crossed
14:14:12 <Art> Also NG, wow.
14:14:18 <Kevin L™> Good luck. Let them know North Google is erupting.
14:14:31 <Betty> hope you make it in time
14:14:51 <Art> Went as fast as we could
14:15:03 <Betty> :-)
14:15:07 <Art> Flight got in 45 min earlier
14:15:27 <Michael> No action on the seismogram as of 16:11.
14:15:38 <Art> Thank you
14:16:39 <Art> Huge structure fire in paradise valley
14:17:17 <ynpvisitor16> If you hrry, you can still catch Old faithful!
14:17:38 <Kevin L™> Gila monster got a train.
14:17:49 <Betty> fun
14:18:02 <Art> Erupted Day we left
14:18:02 <Art> NG loves us
14:18:11 <Art> And now day we get back
14:18:39 <Kevin L™> Hope you get Steamboat.
14:20:00 <Betty> how long do you stay?
14:20:24 <Art> Till June 4th. I think that’s 10ish days
14:20:43 <Betty> great
14:22:44 <Betty> OF
14:22:45 <Michael> OF
14:24:14 <Michael> Any idea when the next Turban is?
14:25:12 <ynpvisitor30> I think it was ie at 1616
14:25:37 <Michael> Thanks.
14:34:00 <Michael> NG
14:34:04 <Betty> NG
14:34:06 <Michael> Took a moment to get going
14:35:33 <Michael> Grand
14:35:41 <ynpvisitor16> So cool
14:36:04 <Michael> That was a nice big start.
14:41:13 <Micah> Wow. Energizer bunny NG
14:49:03 <Betty> NG
14:49:21 <Micah> Geez.
14:49:31 <Micah> I wonder what the record is for NG's in a series
14:50:06 <Micah> And also. C'mon North Goggle give us a major!
14:50:34 <Betty> :-D
14:50:52 <Micah> Anemone!
15:04:49 <ynpvisitor27> NG is still going?? Woo hoo
15:05:24 <ynpvisitor27> If it is building to a major, that would be awesome
15:05:32 <Micah> We'll see if we get another one in the next couple minutes.
15:06:46 <Micah> What a fun geyser.
15:06:58 <ynpvisitor27> has there ever been a series this long ?
15:07:14 <Micah> Not sure. This is definitely one of the longest I've ever heard of.
15:07:29 <Micah> I was talking to Demetri and he was telling me it reminds him of a series in February of 2012
15:07:46 <ynpvisitor27> Jake will be thrilled to see news of this
15:08:02 <Micah> Man that is a crazy busy boardwalk.
15:08:03 <Micah> wow.
15:08:29 <ynpvisitor27> ironic that it happens when there are scores of gazers in the park, yet no one in upper basin
15:08:54 <Micah> haha. Isn't that the truth.
15:09:01 <Micah> I really hope they get Steamboat though
15:09:11 <ynpvisitor27> me too, if not Graham will have missed NG
15:09:44 <ynpvisitor27> he misses it anyway, yet if he is rewarded with Steamboat, that would make it hurt less
15:09:45 <Micah> I wonder if this has to do with the high water levels right now.
15:09:56 <Michael> GT has a zillion entries on February 12 and 13, 2012. Similar to today's endless series.
15:10:00 <Micah> Firehole is still going up and we had that big rain a few days ago.
15:10:19 <ynpvisitor27> it's melting like crazy today
15:10:23 <ynpvisitor27> up high
15:10:30 <Micah> I bet.
15:10:39 <ynpvisitor27> no idea about water, because what explains Feb??
15:10:39 <Micah> Firehole's like....4-5 inches above bankfull.
15:10:50 <Micah> Also high water I supose.
15:10:58 <Micah> But it was going the entire half of that year.
15:11:02 <ynpvisitor27> there is not high water in Feb
15:11:20 <ynpvisitor27> oh, I thought it was just those two days
15:11:44 <Micah> Yeah. It went from like Feb until August.
15:11:53 <Micah> Because it quit right before I got to the park.
15:12:05 <Michael> That was the start of the 2012 active period for North Goggle. It settled down a bit after those two days.
15:12:21 <Micah> The series I saw was in 13'
15:12:45 <Micah> Heard the Barwins call it over the radio and hustled up to the hill.
15:12:47 <ynpvisitor27> No one at Norris gets GT so they do not know NG is happening
15:13:09 <Micah> Yeah and if it's hitting 20+ feet I highly doubt anyone would leave either.
15:13:10 <ynpvisitor27> too bad there is no cell there or we would have Steamboat updates
15:13:51 <Micah> I guess all we can do is keep an eye on the Seismo and hope.
15:13:52 <Micah> NG
15:13:55 <Micah> Maybe?
15:13:56 <Michael> I don't think anyone would leave Norris unless there was a report of Excelsior ie.
15:14:00 <Micah> I saw a little bit of water.
15:14:25 <Micah> Looked like it was one of those super heavy boils.
15:14:31 <Micah> that didn't initiate a minor.
15:14:32 <Michael> Probably a flare-up of boiling at the start of an overflow period.
15:14:57 <Micah> Yeah.
15:15:40 <Micah> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1TLXttH6BU
15:15:52 <Micah> What NG looks like from the Boardwalk.
15:16:47 <Betty> fun.thx Micah
15:17:36 <ynpvisitor27> soon we should get a post from a gazer that is not staying the night at Norris
15:17:46 <ynpvisitor27> update on Steamboat
15:18:10 <ynpvisitor27> I have been thinking it might act differently in this hot dry weather
15:19:24 <ynpvisitor27> there is only an hour of darkness tonight before dawn, if the clouds stay away from Norris
15:19:44 <Betty> is that Lion steam?
15:20:01 <Micah> Lion'd been Huffing.
15:20:13 <ynpvisitor27> for some like Graham, it will be night two and he has not checked in to the lodge
15:20:15 <Micah> That'd be crazy if it started another series and kicked some more potential into NG
15:45:54 <Kevin L™> I think Betty broke it
15:46:08 <Betty> bah
15:46:54 <Michael> Eight hours of North Goggles is still a lot.
15:48:13 <Betty> there was another steam huff
15:51:05 <Kevin L™> Wow. The Amtrak Southwest Chief is over 13 hours late at Victorville.
16:02:02 <Michael> OF
16:02:49 <ynpvisitor32> oooh! it's so pretty!!
16:07:57 <Betty> dep
16:19:15 <Betty> we need a cam cleaning
16:29:30 <Betty> hi Will
16:40:15 <Kevin L™> Are you at the park Will?
16:44:17 <ynpvisitor30> Predictions for Steamboat? Is this a joke?
16:46:44 <Michael> I think it's for entertainment purposes only.
16:46:49 <Will B> ask jake about that
16:46:53 <Will B> lol
16:47:22 <Will B> Kevin i am not. im at work in bozeman
16:47:54 <Kevin L™> Bummer. I was hoping you were going to get your first Steamboat.
16:48:05 <lc> Michael, question about NG maj.
16:48:07 <Will B> hopefully soon
16:48:25 <Betty> hi lc
16:48:37 <lc> to get a maj, don't you need a long overflow?
16:48:45 <lc> hi Betty.
16:49:10 <Kevin L™> That is what stinks. When you are young enough to get out and enjoy things, you have to work. Once you retire you can't get around to enjoy things anymore.
16:50:03 <lc> only seen one but the way I remember it, there was a long overflow.
16:50:32 <Michael> Yes, you need a long overflow. Long overflows can happen before or during a series.
16:51:40 <lc> the one I saw was in the series, after at least a couple of minors.
16:52:21 <lc> I can't remember anything like today.
16:53:43 <Michael> I've never seen anything like today's series.
16:54:05 <Kevin L™> It has been fun even on the cam.
16:55:09 <lc> it really has, I did miss most of it tho.
16:55:31 <ynpvisitor16> Thunderstorm heading to Norris to drive people away
16:55:49 <Micah> And drop the barometric pressure enough to initiate an eruption;)
16:58:57 <Kevin L™> Maybe Splendid will wake up.
16:59:45 <Betty> nice steam at Crested Pool
16:59:51 <lc> been a long time Kevin.
17:00:20 <Betty> LC ie
17:07:30 <Betty> Dome ie
17:10:05 <Betty> Note from Steamboat
17:13:53 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
17:14:12 <Micah> Night Betty
17:14:16 <Michael> night, Betty.
17:14:27 <lc> good night Betty
17:17:10 <Kevin L™> Good Knight Betty
17:20:45 <Michael> faisy
17:20:59 <Micah> That's a new one. ;)
17:22:38 <Michael> Wonder if that's a double interval. Would be awfully short but not impossible.
17:25:47 <ynpvisitor30> I think it is a double interval. I was focussed on North Goggle when I expected Diasy to have last erupted.
17:28:31 <Michael> OF
17:51:32 <ynpvisitor34> Jake here, got a text from a non gazer friend that Steamboat had 3 successive heavy splashes at 1408 but didn't go
17:52:13 <ynpvisitor34> Activity was generally increasing though out the day since 7am but he left after that
17:52:56 <ynpvisitor11> There is a note from Janet @ 1820
17:53:33 <Kevin L™> Good day for a gazer get together anyway.
17:53:57 <Michael> I hope it goes soon, so we can get field reports from the Upper Basin again.
17:54:15 <Kevin L™> I agree with that!
18:02:33 <Michael> Riverside
18:06:19 <Will B> interesting stat since opening on April 20th there have been eruptions entered for 105 different features
18:06:47 <ynpvisitor11> Boots on the ground.
18:09:03 <Will B> Last summer season there were 186 different features entered
18:11:05 <Will B> and at this point in the summer last year 85 different features were logged
18:14:21 <Will B> and that only counts 1 towards things listed under "other"
18:15:09 <Kevin L™> I usually get that many by now in my drip system.
18:18:32 <ynpvisitor87> Micah was in the park!
19:08:12 <Michael> OF with some pink clouds
19:24:27 <Kevin L™> Not looking good for the Steamboat crowd.
19:25:48 <Michael> Most people have to sleep sometime, and it's a tough decision when to do it.
19:26:59 <Kevin L™> Sleep is overated
19:29:23 <Michael> Castle
19:29:36 <Michael> Oops. was ie for a few minutes already.
19:30:49 <ynpvisitor30> I've been on this camera for over 12 hours today and start again early in teh morning, So I think I'm going to get som sleep.
19:33:15 <ynpvisitor30> Another minor?
19:33:22 <Michael> OK. Many thanks for your service today. The recap is going to be fun.
19:33:43 <Kevin L™> Night Dave. Thanks!
19:33:48 <Kevin L™> Good show!
19:34:58 <ynpvisitor30> It was a fun day.
19:35:18 <ynpvisitor30> good night and good luck with Beehive.
19:40:46 <Kevin L™> Good Knight
19:42:51 <Michael> Daisy
19:53:54 <ynpvisitor87> Dramatic sky
19:55:05 <Michael> Steamboat at 7 days now.
20:39:44 <ynpvisitor82> Grand?
20:39:58 <Michael> yes. Looks like it.
20:40:44 <ynpvisitor82> OF
20:41:02 <Micah> Interesting that Steamvalve is active again.
20:43:49 <ynpvisitor87> Dave, you said you were going to sleep!
20:46:49 <Michael> But first, do you have a start time for BHI?
20:47:04 <ynpvisitor30> 2237
20:47:05 <ynpvisitor82> i thnk that may be BHI
20:47:21 <Micah> There's a superlight on it.
20:47:23 <Micah> lol
20:49:51 <ynpvisitor34> bh?
20:50:02 <Micah> Yep
20:50:07 <ynpvisitor30> yes
20:50:07 <Micah> That was a quick indy
20:50:32 <ynpvisitor30> 12 minutes is better than nothing
20:51:06 <Micah> Wow. I'm stupid, definitely thought that was a 2247 indy
20:51:13 <Micah> oops
20:52:05 <12> Gazers must be back from Steamboat
20:54:02 <ynpvisitor30> I bet that park gets reports of lava under beehive causing a bright light
20:54:42 <Micah> Oh I garuntee there will be a conspiracy video up about the lights in less than 12 hours
21:08:07 <ynpvisitor30> Micah why would you flag an eruption that was posted as ie. The ie was correct
21:09:04 <Micah> I didn't flag one?
21:09:15 <Micah> *checks GT
21:09:20 <Micah> if I did it was a misclick.
21:09:35 <Micah> which eruption?
21:09:56 <ynpvisitor30> https://geysertimes.org/eruption.php?id=1034109
21:11:11 <Micah> Oh I think I know what happened.
21:11:18 <Micah> When I saw it I don't think they had combined yet.
21:11:28 <Micah> Sorry.
21:11:35 <Michael> I'm calling it a night. I hope the next Lion series is as exciting as the last one.
21:12:46 <ynpvisitor30> I've deleted the ie eruption entry
