04:55:47 <ynpvisitor999®> morning everyone
05:09:15 <Dave from B™> Good morning DG and other fellow gazers
05:09:23 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
05:13:33 <Dave from B™> Looks like a quite morning. I hope Lion starts soon
05:13:38 <Dave from B™> quiet*
05:14:16 <Dave from B™> I see SB logger is down still
05:15:32 <ynpvisitor37> it updated fine yesterday
05:15:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Echinus logger is still down - the other two, SB and Constant, don't have data yet, though I expect them to show something within an hour or so
05:32:25 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
06:07:35 <J. Oganesson> As heavy as it gets
06:09:10 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
06:09:26 <J. Oganesson> Hello!
06:13:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion looked promising for a few seconds
06:15:33 <ynpvisitor999®> As for YVO's loggers, it looks like they all failed to upload their data :(
06:16:28 <ynpvisitor999®> might be related to the thunderstorm yesterday afternoon
06:20:30 <Dave from B™> You're not Jackie O this morning?
06:23:07 <J. Oganesson> That one didn't occur to me
06:24:08 <J. Oganesson> But now something else did that wouldn't be proper
06:25:20 <Dave from B™> Yeah...don't go there:)
06:27:02 <J. Oganesson> O-kay
07:06:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep?
07:17:30 <Kevin L™> Nice BH splashing.
07:29:23 <Dave from B™> Looks like Dean is Artemesia hunting this morning
07:37:19 <ynpvisitor69> Nice Lion splashing too.
07:37:37 <Kevin L™> Aurum looks dead.
07:38:44 <ynpvisitor69> WTH is that big Tantalus Creek spike from last night?
07:39:23 <ynpvisitor999®> preciptation is the most likely one
07:39:45 <ynpvisitor69> Yeah, that makes sense. Must have been a doozy.
07:39:55 <ynpvisitor999®> one -> cause
07:40:27 <ynpvisitor69> That definition has always made sense to me ;-)
07:48:43 <Dave from B™> wakey wakey Lion
07:49:03 <Dave from B™> For those of you missing Eric he will return Monday
07:52:40 <Rice> Temp still wrong for me, reads 40 deg today.
07:53:40 <Kevin L™> Mine says 54°
07:53:58 <Kevin L™> You may have to toss your cookies.
07:54:40 <Rice> I tossed my cookies, I refreshed, I rebooted, nothing.....
07:57:58 <Dave from B™> Sounds like you should talk to Eric next week when he is back. He may have an idea. Have you updated your browser lately?
07:58:57 <Dave from B™> I love this view...Where else can you see a landscape of this color?
08:01:17 <J. Oganesson> Pamukkale Turkey?
08:03:29 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Jimbo. Didn't even know that place existed. It won't be put on my bucket list. No desire to go to that part of the world.
08:04:03 <Dave from B™> That's Mammoth on steroids
08:04:12 <J. Oganesson> One of the few other places in the world with travertine terrraces
08:05:07 <BruceJ> Anyone been to Thermopolis? Not far from YNP, also has a large travertine pool assemblage.
08:05:20 <Jake> Rice, are you running an adblocker?
08:05:31 <Kevin L™> I bet Joe has been there.
08:06:26 <BruceJ> There are many places with cold travertine terraces - one of the prettiest is at the base of Havasu Falls. We actually have a travertine assemblage not far from me in CA, but it's mostly grown over with forest.
08:08:21 <BruceJ>
08:09:21 <Mike J> Just looked up the Turkey location. (Not going to try and spell it.) The combination of pools and an ancient Roman site looks incredible
08:10:00 <BruceJ> Thermopolis HS:
08:11:22 <J. Oganesson> Yeah, I was going to note that I meant warm travertine terrace formations and springs. I've seen travertine in Virginia in streams in the Shenandoah Valley.
08:12:20 <BruceJ> The turkey site must be relatively devoid of coloring minerals - it's all white!
08:15:03 <BruceJ> Maybe the combination of volcanic hot springs and calcium carbonate is a rarity. That sort of make sense, but maybe mostly because of coincidence.
08:20:13 <Kevin L™> Big group.
08:20:27 <Dave from B™> wow
08:21:18 <Dave from B™> They'll be watching a Lion initial soon if that is a ranger tour
08:22:20 <Kevin L™> It does look happy
08:29:05 <BruceJ> Lion was having early-series eruptions late last night - unless it was a short series, and it might have been, a Lion may still be hours away.
08:30:12 <Dave from B™> Series of 2 ended at 2203
08:30:22 <BruceJ> The fourth Lion in series last night would have been in the midnight hour.
08:30:47 <BruceJ> So, we are sure it was only a series of two, and others were not missed?
08:31:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion did have some sustained, initial-like splashes twice 1-2 hours ago, so I think it delayed itself by doing that by a few hours
08:33:28 <Dave from B™> Dave M did captures so I'm very positive that non were missed
08:33:52 <BruceJ> OK - I'll accept that.
08:52:20 <ynpvisitor57> No Lion eruption were missed last night. I was expecting a longer series but Lion didn't cooperate.
09:03:51 <BruceJ> OK, cool - thanks ynpv57.
09:05:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Hopefully this results in a long Lion series (and NG would be a welcome addition)
09:06:22 <BruceJ> Indeed! :thumbsup:
09:07:14 <BruceJ> I think it actually did that several weeks ago. Series of two, followed by a long series + many NG minors.
09:09:08 <BruceJ> May 26, NG had a long series. The readily available Lion data do not go back that far.
09:09:39 <ynpvisitor999®> you can add &n= to see more than 100 entries
09:09:54 <ynpvisitor999®> behind the URL
09:10:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
09:11:24 <Stephen G.> I remember that May 26 series; nobody in the park saw it because everybody was up at Steamboat. All the entries for it were webcam I believe. Would've been nice to see it, but Steamboat took priority :)
09:12:38 <BruceJ> So, Lion did two series of 2 each on the 25th of May, followed by a series of 8 on the morning of the 26th, and then a long series of NGs in the afternoon.
09:13:33 <BruceJ> Several happy people at Daisy :-)
09:20:42 <BruceJ> Waaalll - I gotta go - good fortune with Lion!
09:20:57 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Bruce
09:22:55 <Kevin L™> bye
09:25:10 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
09:26:41 <ynpvisitor999®> and a quick comeback major for Atomizer
09:34:18 <ynpvisitor999®> GRand
09:34:51 <ynpvisitor999®> had a nice tall start
09:45:06 <Kevin L™> Looking like a 1b'
09:45:45 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
09:46:37 <ynpvisitor55> I have a long delay. Stop with the spoilers already :)
09:48:12 <Stephen G.> I've got a delay as well... it is nice though. If I'm looking away from the screen, the chat notification gives me time to look for the eruption :)
09:48:24 <Dave from B™> Giant:)
09:48:33 <Dave from B™> sorry, could't resist
09:49:29 <ynpvisitor100> That would be a fast recovery on Giant. Giantess would have been more believable. Kevin would fall for Aurum.
09:49:48 <Stephen G.> Haha Dave; that would've been nice if it was Giant.
09:50:37 <ynpvisitor55> You're in no danger from me, but I won't speak for the rest of the watchers :)
09:50:57 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 11m37s
09:51:00 <ynpvisitor999®> per hk
10:01:51 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
10:06:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Micah is at F&M
10:06:43 <ynpvisitor999®> and watching animals
10:08:11 <Dave from B™> haha..yes, he is
10:08:49 <Dave from B™> What animal is next?
10:10:38 <Stephen G.> There's been a few otters around F&M lately... I seem to remember an entry from Tara a couple days ago on otters
10:12:16 <Dave from B™> Yep. a lot of wildlife cross the Firehole between F&M Bridge and Biscuit Basin
10:12:26 <Kevin L™> Otters beat grizzlies
10:12:43 <Dave from B™> I would take an grizzly in that fight
10:14:41 <Dave from B™> company lunch...bbl
10:15:16 <Kevin L™> Watch for Indy
10:47:53 <ynpvisitor999®> New York had its own artificial geyser on the Fifth Ave. a few hours ago
10:49:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
10:50:50 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
10:56:09 <Dave from B™> Dean finally caught Artemesia
10:56:57 <Kevin L™> :)
11:51:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
11:54:43 <ynpvisitor91> Getting a bit seasick here
11:55:38 <Kevin L™> Need a stronger tree
11:57:46 <Dave from B™> Good afternoon Jeff
11:58:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy
11:58:32 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:58:32 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:58:33 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:58:34 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:58:35 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:58:42 <Dave from B™> nice timing!
11:59:13 <Dave from B™> Let me know if you need a text sent.
11:59:46 <Kevin L™> Sent
11:59:54 <Dave from B™> Rec'd
12:00:37 <Kevin L™> Big splashes for this early
12:00:37 <ynpvisitor114> good timing for me
12:00:46 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
12:01:12 <Jeff in CT> gday, all
12:01:21 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Jeff
12:01:35 <Jeff in CT> Maybe a double, :lion::bee:
12:02:36 <Jeff in CT> Little Cub?
12:04:28 <ynpvisitor114> are you asking where it is? To the left of Lion
12:04:47 <ynpvisitor114> it's off now, it only sputters really
12:05:00 <Jeff in CT> Yup, go it, thanks.
12:05:18 <ynpvisitor999®> SC is due too - hopefully I can see it on the static
12:05:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
12:07:03 <ynpvisitor114> BH misses the gazers
12:12:57 <ynpvisitor114> I thought all Lion posts were considered major unless MINOR is attached to them. No need for major on wc posts
12:16:03 <ynpvisitor114> BH
12:16:08 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
12:16:34 <Kevin L™> Shower time!
12:16:47 <ynpvisitor117> BH was generous with showers last week with shifting winds
12:16:48 <ynpvisitor999®> wind-blown
12:16:58 <ge (working)> nobody is moving
12:17:04 <J. Oganesson> BEWARE of wind shifts
12:17:31 <Jeff in CT> Highly localized :drizzle:
12:17:38 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
12:18:00 <ge (working)> looks to be hitting the bw by plume
12:18:05 <ynpvisitor114> curtain is in front of bw
12:18:06 <Jeff in CT> Reminds me when we experienced water-fall effect snow at Niagara Falls, intense snow over a distance of about 100 meters
12:18:25 <J. Oganesson> I got that effect last winter
12:18:51 <Kevin L™> Wind shift!
12:19:06 <Jeff in CT> Run!
12:19:15 <ynpvisitor117> should have nice rainbow in that curtain
12:19:34 <Jeff in CT> wrong angle for a rainbow on WC - been waiting a long time for one
12:20:07 <ynpvisitor117> yep - probably great from bw
12:20:25 <ynpvisitor114> odd time of day for a rainbow
12:20:29 <Jeff in CT> sun might be too high, though
12:20:50 <ynpvisitor114> maybe from lower Hams
12:20:52 <ynpvisitor40> Guessing everyones at Steamboat unless they have to work?
12:21:20 <ynpvisitor114> dean and hk are there in basin
12:22:05 <ynpvisitor116> Micah's also at F&M this morning
12:22:22 <ynpvisitor9> nice!
12:23:00 <ynpvisitor116> Rainbows require the sun over your shoulder. To see a rainbow midday, you'd need to be an osprey :-)
12:24:37 <ynpvisitor114> past midday
12:24:48 <ynpvisitor114> and Micah must be at work by now
12:25:13 <ynpvisitor114> no BH post from basin
12:25:19 <ynpvisitor116> A-yupp
12:26:04 <ynpvisitor116> Tara was at Grotto at noontime.
12:34:05 <ynpvisitor114> too bad hk and Suzanne could not enjoy Giant more.
12:34:21 <ynpvisitor114> I am glad he wrote up a little bit about the eruption
12:35:10 <ynpvisitor114> I wonder if Oblong erupting again will change things at Giant
12:37:09 <ynpvisitor116> I wondered the same thing. 11 years ago, we had lots of Giant and lots of Oblongs and lots of Grotto marathons. Not like now.
12:37:38 <ynpvisitor114> time will tell.
12:37:39 <Dave from B™> Why hk and Suzanna not enjoy Giant? becasue of the dark?
12:37:57 <ynpvisitor114> Read about Dave, at
12:38:11 <ynpvisitor114> they had issues
12:38:31 <ynpvisitor114> he did say about ten folks made it out to see part of it
12:39:08 <ynpvisitor114> I meant to say read about it, dave
12:39:27 <ynpvisitor114> ha ha, no notes about Dave from B in hk's notes
12:40:00 <Dave from B™> haha I go.brb
12:40:56 <Jake> regarding Lion majors in GT, there's no policy. it's not wrong to mark a major eruption as major! the convention has fallen into only marking minors as minors and majors as nothing. I have marked some majors as major, especially during series with frequent minors
12:42:20 <Jake> just as all geysers erupt and behave differently so too have conventions developed independently for how to record their observations
12:43:29 <Jake> it's pretty harmless with Lion. Giant platform activity, however, is turning into a data mess of competing conventions of how to pigeon-hole observations into the existing GT framework
12:43:51 <ynpvisitor114> noted, I just wondered if that had changed, as normally you do not see major posted next to Lion posts
12:44:19 <ynpvisitor108> wow of
12:44:24 <ynpvisitor114> At Giant, most people make a note of a bijou pause, where as hk posts it as an eruption
12:44:50 <Jake> I like to see the major designation on Lion as it usually means that someone didn't forget to mark it as a minor
12:45:25 <ynpvisitor999®> I marked those two Lions as major because their duration was longer than 4m. I they had a duration shorter than 4m, they wouldn't have the major behind it
12:45:55 <ynpvisitor55> Fluff the magic dragon!
12:46:06 <ynpvisitor114> what about Bijou? Is a pause listed with a comment that it was off for so many minutes supposed to be an eruption post?
12:46:24 <Jake> 999, that's new. so a major major
12:46:38 <ynpvisitor114> will GT post a major major?
12:46:45 <ynpvisitor55> Catch 22?
12:47:56 <Jake> there's no way to mark it is a major major. that would have to be a comment like "no, seriously, this was MAJOR MAJOR"
12:48:21 <Jake> for Bijou, there's this day:
12:48:41 <Jake> hk is entering Bijou pauses as "eruptions" others enter them as notes
12:49:12 <Jake> there are many variations on this theme between Giant, Giant Hot Period, Bijou, Mastiff (notes & eruptions in all sorts of combinations)
12:50:14 <ynpvisitor114> I was wondering if his geyser log does not have the ability to post notes
12:50:21 <J. Oganesson> Drone video of Kilauea eruption - get your hot dogs ready.
12:52:51 <ynpvisitor116> We saw that last month on a helicopter flight. Lousy seating and poor windows made visual records all but impossible, but that's about what it looked like, with a bit more fountaining.
12:53:38 <ynpvisitor47> I like the Bijous as a time - can see the intervals with one click
12:56:43 <ynpvisitor999®> weak F&M event cycle 1327
13:04:28 <ynpvisitor116> Cam op - could zero in on Lion for a few - ?
13:06:43 <Dave from B™> I've never read HK's posts before. Very very interesting. He has great insight on Giant. He just needs someone to look at his things. Maybe a Sherpa?:D
13:07:15 <Dave from B™> ok..that didn't come out right at all.
13:07:49 <ynpvisitor116> HK has great experience and devotion to the geysers.
13:08:34 <Dave from B™> He is very knowledgable..I just know Becca and I are a little too noisy for his tastes...and I try to respect that as much as possible.
13:09:29 <Dave from B™> But, HK and Suzanne are expert gazers who have much to share with all of us
13:09:58 <ynpvisitor116> Indeed!
13:11:59 <ynpvisitor116> Looks like we have the *possibility* of another 2-play Lion series, just like May 25.
13:15:51 <ynpvisitor116> Lion's Tryin'
13:17:13 <ynpvisitor999®> I think the best chance for a follow-up Lion would be around the 1h14m-1h18m mark
13:18:00 <ynpvisitor116> Even for the third in series?
13:18:21 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
13:18:27 <ynpvisitor116> OK'
13:18:53 <ynpvisitor999®> though I feel more comfortable with a 1h10m±10m window
13:19:33 <ynpvisitor116> That would have been my first impulse too.
13:25:32 <ynpvisitor114> I like that Dave from B, a sherpa to watch after hk and Suzanne's things so they can concentrate on the geysers.
13:27:38 <Dave from B™> 116, just noticed this Lion series has had 3 so far
13:28:04 <Dave from B™> A sherpa with a rickshaw would be even better
13:28:33 <Jake> it could be the sequel to The Devil Wears Prada
13:28:43 <ynpvisitor116> So it does! Still pretty short series unless it kicks into gear shortly.
13:29:58 <Dave from B™> So, hk and Suzanne were involved in GOSA formation with Paul. Who were the other 2 involved?
13:31:20 <ynpvisitor116> In fact, this is part of a long string of short Lion series. Lots of 2s and 3s.
13:34:15 <Jeff in CT> :lion: at 11:24, 12:49, and 14:05 - either over due or done till tomorrow.
13:34:55 <Dave from B™> done until tomorrow or almost tomorrow
13:35:05 <Dave from B™> HI, GRAHAM
13:35:12 <GO SOMETHING> who me?
13:35:30 <GO SOMETHING> still waiting for more Norris news?
13:35:36 <GO SOMETHING> or the F&M cloud?
13:35:36 <ynpvisitor116> Last 7 Lion series 2-3-3-3-3-2-(3).
13:36:03 <Jeff in CT> Any correlation between Lion and rainfall?
13:36:22 <GO SOMETHING> maybe we can get DOme?
13:36:27 <Dave from B™> For tonight, we left you 1 Castle, 2 Daisy's, 1 Grand, 1 Aurum, 4 OF, 1 Riverside
13:36:43 <GO SOMETHING> only 1 Aurum?
13:36:50 <Dave from B™> Dome tomorrow
13:37:15 <Dave from B™> Isn't 1 Aurum hard enough to find?
13:37:55 <GO SOMETHING> we should send Micah up there for reports every hour
13:38:29 <GO SOMETHING> tracking details of the minor vents will keep him happy
13:38:53 <GO SOMETHING> and about as much chance of seeing an eruption as being down at F&M
13:39:57 <Dave from B™> Have we seen any Micah posts today?
13:40:13 <GO SOMETHING> from F&M
13:40:22 <GO SOMETHING> and the non-geyser wildlife reports
13:40:43 <GO SOMETHING> not sure if he is working late shift every day
13:41:53 <Dave from B™> That's right...He was doing his best Marlin Perkins impersonation today
13:42:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
13:42:15 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:42:15 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:42:16 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:42:22 <Dave from B™> woohoo
13:42:23 <Dave from B™> ..
13:42:23 <Dave from B™> ..
13:42:24 <Dave from B™> .
13:42:39 <GO SOMETHING> thats one down
13:42:40 <Dave from B™> .There ya go, Graham
13:42:54 <Dave from B™> Tomorrow, let me know if you got your whole list
13:42:59 <Jake> too easy
13:43:29 <J. Oganesson> Whew, I was getting worried.
13:43:30 <Dave from B™> Should we thru in F&M as well, Jake?
13:43:38 <GO SOMETHING> what time will the second one go before dark?
13:43:40 <ynpvisitor116> :heart:
13:43:51 <Jake> F&M doesn't go before dark
13:44:07 <ynpvisitor999®> I doubt Aurum will go before dark
13:44:26 <ynpvisitor55> That was nice:thumbsup:
13:45:02 <Dave from B™> Time to skedaddle out of here. Have a great evening everyone!
13:45:06 <GO SOMETHING> F&M tomorrow morning for Micah and tara?
13:45:12 <Jeff in CT> bye
13:45:21 <Stephen G.> Have a good one Dave!
13:45:26 <GO SOMETHING> bye Dave, and thanks for Aurum prediction
13:45:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Same to you, Dave
