04:02:41 <ynpvisitor107> SC
04:38:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> hard to see this morning
04:39:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> hopefully this moisture helps with the fires
04:48:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> no shaking on the seismo last night, so peeps can have another day watching at Norris. YTG photo of a minor looked vertical and thick yesterday
04:50:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> just passed the last 14d15h interval, now the 20d20h interval is the next shortest
04:52:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> dep?
05:04:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> of 0703on statis
05:37:58 <ynpvisitor107> INDY?
05:38:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> is that BHI?
05:38:15 <ynpvisitor107> indy
05:38:15 <ynpvisitor107> .
05:38:16 <ynpvisitor107> .
05:38:16 <ynpvisitor107> .
05:42:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> they arein for a surprise
05:42:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> no gazers to top them
05:43:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe one now
05:43:33 <ynpvisitor80> Lion going
05:43:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> more now
05:43:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> yep
05:45:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning Kent
05:46:14 <Kent> My portion of luck for the day! Good morning Indy! Morning Graham.
05:47:13 <Kent> 33°. no wonder lots of fog
05:49:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> Eric had plenty of time to get out of bed to BH
05:50:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> beeeee
05:50:54 <Kent> With the fog and dirty dome a very "impressionistic" eruption
05:54:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> quite a few peeps there now
05:54:59 <Kent> We need a soundtrack. Almost eerily quiet
05:55:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> just play a steaboat video in the background
05:55:52 <Kent> That was a different eruption
05:57:01 <ynpvisitor93> Nice way to wake up. Maybe get another daylight eruption today.
05:57:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> just in time for people to goto breakfast
05:57:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> or maybe they had breakfast interrupted
06:09:10 <ynpvisitor4> Maybe SB is not going to erupt anytime soon.
06:10:31 <ynpvisitor4> And the next BH will be in the dark
06:37:38 <ynpvisitor107> Castle
06:39:13 <ynpvisitor80> I do not se water
06:39:21 <ynpvisitor80> see
06:40:41 <ynpvisitor4> Comet? Where is that?
06:41:33 <ynpvisitor62> close to Daisy
06:42:47 <ynpvisitor62> think its constant splash
06:52:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> dep
07:31:13 <Kevin L™> Darn! I missed a Comet.
07:32:39 <Dave from B™> It's a once in a lifetime event!
07:39:09 <Dave from B™> What is that on the Maple Creek seismo?
07:40:07 <ynpvisitor999®> That's the 8.2 Fiji-Tonga earthquake
07:40:22 <ynpvisitor999®> if I recall correctly
07:41:23 <ynpvisitor999®> said eartquake occurred at a depth of ~563km/~350mi
07:41:58 <ynpvisitor999®> even YMV showed something - which is a rare occurrance
07:42:00 <Dave from B™> But nothing on the Norris seismo (YNM)
07:42:20 <ynpvisitor999®> YNM is configured to record hearable noise, like cars and SB
07:42:31 <ynpvisitor999®> YNR does show it, however
07:43:25 <Dave from B™> I didn't know seismo could be configured differently
07:44:24 <Kevin L™> Pacific rim is really rocking and rolling this week.
07:44:59 <Kevin L™> Probably means the Yellowstone caldera is due to erupt!
07:45:04 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
07:45:35 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm more surprised it didn't trigger any major volcanic eruption in Indonesia
07:45:37 <Kevin L™> I think the Comet eruption proves that!
07:47:36 <ynpvisitor999®> I honestly hope the earthquakes in Indonesia don't become larger than they currently are.
07:48:12 <Kevin L™> 8.2 is pretty hefty. Sure that one did some major damage.
07:53:45 <ynpvisitor999®> due to it's large depth the effects were minimal
08:05:23 <Dave from B™> Hello Grand ie
08:05:51 <Dave from B™> Billings has its first air quality warning of the fire season. No wind and very very hazy today
08:06:15 <Kevin L™> You sure that isn't a Peculator major?
08:10:50 <Kevin L™> Looking like a 1b
08:14:19 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure if Eric checked in yesterday but he sat on SB for 6 hours yesterday
08:16:59 <Kevin L™> I saw a GT note from him
08:30:23 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
08:52:07 <ynpvisitor4> I would guess Eric figures out of the big 3, SB has best window right now. How long his family wants to be there is another question.
08:52:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
08:52:36 <Kevin L™> At least it isn't hot
08:53:31 <ynpvisitor4> How long they want to stare at dirt...
08:53:53 <ynpvisitor4> As Dave’s wife says
08:54:12 <Dave from B™> 4, based on comments from Eric last week, he is more interested in Giant than SB
08:54:34 <ynpvisitor4> I saw that too, and yet he’s at SB
08:54:40 <Dave from B™> And, it is closer to the cabin for his wife and duaghter
08:54:59 <Dave from B™> Yesterday, he stopped on his way in before checking in at UGB
08:55:21 <ynpvisitor4> You think he is in UGB today?
08:57:10 <ynpvisitor4> And he had to turn left at Madison, so not exactly on the way...
08:59:27 <Dave from B™> I think he is at UGB today. just sent him a text...waiting for an answer
09:03:26 <ynpvisitor4> Tara is back to work today, I’m sure she’ll be glad for someone observing Giant
09:07:24 <Dave from B™> No text from Eric. No GT entries from Eric....4, I'm beginning to lean your direction
09:07:57 <Michael> As I recall, Tara can sometimes get a nice view of Giant from work if somebody is calling hot periods.
09:24:24 <ynpvisitor4> Dave, you said SB prison draws people in...
09:24:46 <ynpvisitor4> And Tara does have a view if she’s on break
09:28:59 <Dave from B™> He swore he was more interested in Giant. Yes, Steamboat does pull people in. It could be another 30 years before Steamboat is catchable.
09:30:39 <Michael> OF
09:37:40 <Michael> Early afternoon is going to be pretty slow if Giant doesn't make an appearance.
09:38:48 <Kevin L™> Good day to wait on SB or Giant.
09:52:44 <Kevin L™> I guess he could get a Comet while waiting for Daisy....
10:05:30 <ynpvisitor77> Maybe a Pyramid too.
10:06:13 <Michael> Should be a Grotto soon. Hopefully a short and/or wierd one.
10:06:46 <ynpvisitor77> Have we had any Grotto Marathons recently?
10:13:15 <Dave from B™> Well. Time to sign off until August 27. Taking Becca to school tomorrow. Have a great week everyone! Go Big 3!
10:13:50 <Kevin L™> Have a nice trip. This one should be faster than the last one.
10:14:46 <Dave from B™> :D and no nights in a rest area either!
10:17:33 <Michael> See you, Dave! On the road again...
10:22:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Castl
10:22:28 <ynpvisitor999®> e
10:28:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:32:46 <Michael> That was really nice.
10:33:20 <Michael> And hopefully the third time's the charm for Castle to have a major.
10:35:08 <ynpvisitor55> I'm always amazed how many people will sit for 30 min waiting for OF but won't walk over to see Castle while ie.
10:36:07 <ynpvisitor69> I was running when I saw Castle ie for the 1st time :-)
10:36:23 <Betty> hi all
10:36:31 <Michael> Same here. And I was very mad about missing the start.
10:36:36 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
10:36:52 <Betty> evening DG and Michael
10:37:26 <Michael> Hi Betty. Enjoy Castle, as the next few hours may be very quiet.
10:37:50 <ynpvisitor55> hi, just in a nice daisy now
10:38:33 <Betty> we may get SC LC and Aurum
10:38:49 <Betty> this is Castle
10:44:35 <ynpvisitor55> pretty steam phase
10:46:03 <Michael> I'm looking at recent GT reports to see how long until Giant has another strong hot period. There isn't a clear pattern, but I'd spend the rest of the day at SB if given a choice.
10:51:57 <ynpvisitor999®> what's the (presumably) ranger doing with that sign?
10:52:27 <Betty> usually they do ranger talks
10:52:41 <Betty> show how geysers work
10:53:21 <Betty> showing Yellowstone is a supervolcano and that stuff
10:53:31 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
10:53:57 <Betty> yw
10:54:32 <ynpvisitor55> So much smoke you can't see the other side of the lake on the static webcam
10:56:31 <ynpvisitor999®> I hoped the rain yesterday cleared some smoke, but apparantly it didn't :(
11:08:48 <Betty> Aurum
11:08:49 <Betty> .
11:08:51 <Betty> .
11:09:31 <ynpvisitor86> I don't see it
11:09:47 <Michael> Shoot. I missed it.
11:10:03 <ynpvisitor86> It didn't erupt
11:10:09 <Betty> No, I think it wasn`t
11:10:21 <ynpvisitor999®> wishful thinking :P
11:10:27 <ynpvisitor86> I've checked the recording and there was no Aurum
11:10:38 <Betty> my stream stopped with a bit more steam :-p
11:10:56 <Michael> Well, then save my comment for the next time I miss it.
11:11:06 <Betty> thx, always good to have someone to check it
11:11:41 <Betty> maybe it is heating up and we see it soon
11:12:53 <ynpvisitor55> Hopefully not hidden by OF steam, but the wind looks good.
11:15:44 <ynpvisitor999®> OF's pulling a long interval
11:17:48 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe not
11:18:14 <Betty> nice start
11:18:17 <ynpvisitor55> It was just playing to the crowd.
11:22:55 <Betty> nice depression
11:35:59 <Michael> I've got to run errands. Good luck with Aurum.
11:36:48 <Betty> see ya Michael
11:40:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> GO
11:40:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> let people free
11:41:41 <Betty> hi Graham
11:45:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello
11:46:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> last 4 Grand intervals under 6h, thats nice. 2 cycles of 5 in 24h so far
11:47:58 <ynpvisitor62> interesting note on Great F.
11:49:49 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... makes me think that the logger is set an hour forward
11:51:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> must be the 8/18/18 effect
11:51:53 <ynpvisitor999®> because if you subtract an hour (0612 E instead of 0712 E) I think that would line up the E times and in-basin observations
11:52:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> sounds like Giant is the most interesting place to be ... of course we are not seeing any details from SB ... one assumes its good since its holding people here
11:57:17 <Betty> LC ie
12:04:08 <ynpvisitor999®> apparantly SB had one of those silver bullets @ 1204
12:07:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> eruption was 14h later on 6/11 when it did similar minor. of course then it was doing the short intervals
12:08:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> Jeff saw the nighttime start then ... didnt provide details for GT tho
12:11:08 <Betty> Lion
12:11:22 <Betty> uhmmm
12:11:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> guess tat was enough for Udo to give up for the day, understandable
12:12:03 <Betty> teased me :-(
12:12:16 <Betty> ah, there it is :-)
12:12:29 <ynpvisitor301> People, stop look and enjoy!
12:12:37 <ynpvisitor301> Nope, off they go...
12:13:05 <ynpvisitor55> For most folks, there's OF and there's "other".
12:13:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion surely knows how to slightly annoy me. Was away for just a short while to clear my nose and, of course, it goes
12:38:34 <ynpvisitor68> I think that if one counts a "Silver Bullet" as a routine "OMG" minor, then you begin to have another chance by about 2000 this evening. Assuming that SB is dong what it did on June 11 and August 4 - on that last date, we have a doozy of a minor at about 0600 give or take, followed by mostly middling stuff, and the eruption 8 hours later at 1410..
12:40:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> I was just going by Udo's like-like comments on the two days, assuming he means the same type of behavior
12:41:23 <ynpvisitor68> Yeah, and that could be true too.
12:41:35 <ynpvisitor64> That works if the
12:41:36 <Betty> OF
13:25:36 <Betty> have a great evening all, night
13:25:59 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
13:32:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ns
13:35:14 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
13:38:28 <ynpvisitor999®> nice Bee splash
13:42:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> a Bee now would be nice
13:45:31 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
13:46:42 <ynpvisitor68> A bee now would be really early
13:46:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> yep :)
13:47:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> i only know of one interval this short
13:48:13 <ynpvisitor68> In recent times?
13:48:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> this decade :)
13:48:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think
13:49:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> just before the false indicators every 4h
13:49:13 <ynpvisitor68> That's pretty recent. 8 hrs is a SHORT interval by any standard
13:49:25 <ynpvisitor999®> I know of two sub-10h last year, one of which was part of a quadfecta
13:49:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> it was 7h something
13:49:47 <ynpvisitor68> False indicators. Pooey! 7 hours is crazy.
13:50:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> but the indicaters werent that bad .. you could leave for 3h and then come back
13:50:39 <ynpvisitor68> Was that 7 hr interval play a full strength eruption?
13:51:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, i dont think BH had half strength eruptions, does it?
13:53:07 <ynpvisitor68> Honestly, not sure - if you only give it half the usual interval to rebuild energy, then there's either (1) more energy than usual; (2) it's running on half empty, or (3) it's all energized after 7 or 8 hours anyhow and it;s just a mean old geyser to make us wait longer ;-)
13:53:41 <ynpvisitor999®> the one in 'my' quadfecta had an interval of 9h04m and appeared to be full-strength, though it did seem to contain more steam than water, but that might've been due to it being practically near wind-still
13:54:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> other than bHI variability and intervals, I think all eruptions are the same for BH
13:54:59 <ynpvisitor68> A steamy :bee: is not something I am used to seeing that's for sure. That preponderance of water is one reason why I hold it in such high esteem.
13:55:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> then once it starts its all wind and light variability
13:55:11 <ynpvisitor62> I agree
13:55:45 <ynpvisitor68> I tend to think you're right -not much variation in the play other than wind effects.
13:59:27 <ynpvisitor999®> of the past 5000 Bees, the shortest realistic(!) interval so far is 7h34m, which occurred on August 10, 2010 @ 1740 E
14:00:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks 999. was that followed by intervals up to 80h?
14:00:25 <ynpvisitor68> Thanks, 999. FWIW, TGOY 5th ed. reports a minimum interval of 8.5 hours.
14:00:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> sounds like right tiem of year too, because i remember false indicators in Set
14:01:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe that will be fixed in the 6th edition:)
14:01:31 <ynpvisitor999®> nope, the following 20 intervals were all sub-15h bar 2. There were two sub-9h intervals in a row on the 22nd of August
14:02:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok, did it extend out later?
14:02:36 <ynpvisitor999®> first 24h+ interval was on August 28, 2010 @ 1750 E
14:02:46 <ynpvisitor62> wonder if there was a Giantess eruption
14:02:48 <ynpvisitor68> 6th Edition! How il I survive that long?!?!?!
14:03:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> only one Giantess July 2010
14:03:44 <ynpvisitor68> And you reported it! :-)
14:03:58 <ynpvisitor68> 25 Jul 2010 @ 2240 interval 176d 7h 51m
14:04:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> i logges it, VR via listserver
14:04:56 <ynpvisitor68> That's good enough for me.
14:05:44 <ynpvisitor999®> the second sub-8h interval was on March 7, 2011 @ 1325 E. You actually reported that Beehive from the webcam, Graham
14:05:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> there as a Giantess in Jan 2010 and then Jan 2011 but cant blame BH bahavior on it
14:06:06 <ynpvisitor68> Huh - we are easily now in the max interval for Giantess. Blah :p :(
14:07:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> what was that interval in 2011 DG?
14:07:15 <ynpvisitor999®> 7h21m
14:07:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok, thats probably the one i was thinking about
14:08:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> so much for fall :)
14:09:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> Grand has to go before 1632 to be 5 in 24h again
14:10:22 <ynpvisitor999®> there apparantly was a 1h40m interval on August 25, 2012 @ 1833 (1833 is supported by a wc and E time), which means the 1653 is most likely wrong (or maybe it was a massive false start?)
14:13:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> who logged it?
14:13:51 <ynpvisitor999®> 1653 is from LynnS
14:14:56 <ynpvisitor999®> 1833 is from Will, you and a logger
14:15:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
14:15:22 <ynpvisitor107> Grand
14:15:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> lynn is good with times ... maybe an error in geysername or date
14:16:18 <ynpvisitor999®> most likely - maybe a typo in the date
14:17:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> lynns entry was made in 2015
14:17:15 <ynpvisitor68> Grand make it under the wire.
14:21:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> so thats the 3rd series of 5 in 24h
14:22:29 <ynpvisitor999®> 7m
14:22:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> its got 6h15m to get within 24h
14:24:02 <ynpvisitor107> 2nd
14:25:34 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd done
14:28:56 <ynpvisitor86> I just checked the recordings. August 25, 2012 Beehive erpted at 1833 not 1653. We should remove Lynn's entry. -- It was fun to see Plume again even if it was only on an older recording.
14:29:12 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks, 86
14:29:58 <ynpvisitor86> I put a flag on the listing.
14:30:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> i would send her a message so she can see what it was
14:30:16 <ynpvisitor86> Need someone else to remove it
14:30:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> time to g ... see ya
14:30:45 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Graham
14:31:38 <ynpvisitor999®> flagged and thus removed
14:31:41 <ynpvisitor68> Bye Graham happy evening
14:44:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
14:44:34 <ynpvisitor68> :lion:
14:44:42 <ynpvisitor999®> minor
14:44:46 <ynpvisitor68> Go Lion! :-)
14:44:54 <ynpvisitor68> Awwwww....
15:19:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Short Grotto interval for an eruption lasting ~3½h max
15:19:57 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully a good sign for Giant
15:20:58 <Michael> I wonder if Giant will respond like it does to marathons -- water level drop, Bijou gets weak.
15:21:28 <Michael> And sometimes followed by a great hot period...
15:23:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
16:05:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
16:05:54 <ynpvisitor999®> and yet another minor so far
16:07:20 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it'll be a minor, though had a good attempt @ mid 1806
16:07:22 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
16:08:46 <ynpvisitor55> Lion only erupted to draw the camera for LC's benefit.
16:09:14 <ynpvisitor999®> from what's that steam plume under Little Cub?
16:11:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
16:11:59 <ynpvisitor999®> another minor
16:13:12 <ynpvisitor999®> nice Bee splashing
16:20:00 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching YNM, SC, Lion and the treeline.
16:20:32 <ynpvisitor2> Don't worry no SB till tomorrow after the false start today
16:20:53 <ynpvisitor2> I love pretending to have any way to predict Steamboat
16:21:23 <Michael> Bye DG. Good night.
16:33:38 <ynpvisitor36> Lion 1832 wc ie
17:34:34 <ynpvisitor36> Lion 1933 wc
17:51:55 <Michael> daisy ie
18:50:14 <ynpvisitor15> Time for BH
19:00:55 <Michael> OF should get out of the way first.
19:01:25 <ynpvisitor15> That is not the one I wanted.
19:16:10 <ynpvisitor25> BH is going to wait until dark.
19:21:57 <ynpvisitor15> heretic!
20:03:31 <ynpvisitor55> Maybe Grand, but can't say in this light.
20:04:01 <ynpvisitor34> Grand is ie
20:05:37 <ynpvisitor57> Average interval under 6 hours today.
20:06:08 <ynpvisitor34> Nice
20:07:49 <ynpvisitor34> I see Eric made it to Steamboat
20:07:52 <ynpvisitor57> Daisy has been running real close to 2.5 hours,so it should go in the first half of its window.
20:11:01 <ynpvisitor57> Recent comments suggest it may go tonight.
20:11:35 <ynpvisitor33> Someone posted SB as an eruption instead of a note!
20:11:55 <ynpvisitor33> Not a good mistake
20:13:57 <ynpvisitor57> Looks like it got flagged down.
20:15:15 <ynpvisitor33> Good
20:16:27 <ynpvisitor33> Kitt likes SB yet not enough to stay tonight
20:16:54 <ynpvisitor33> I wonder if anyone will stay with it looking strong?
20:22:32 <ynpvisitor57> I hope so. Easy for me to say, I'm at home with a comfortable bed...
20:22:36 <ynpvisitor57> Daisy.
20:34:33 <ynpvisitor79> Yuk, no way to tell what BH is doing.
20:40:38 <ynpvisitor57> There's the OF smoke-screen.
20:45:02 <ynpvisitor57> The "2139" OF time posted is a typo.
20:45:24 <ynpvisitor57> Fixed already.
20:45:40 <ynpvisitor79> Dave is up late!
20:46:29 <ynpvisitor57> The ghost of Dave is always lurking around creating typos.
21:14:14 <ynpvisitor79> Well BH will have to wait for me to return in the AM.
21:14:56 <ynpvisitor57> Good night. I expect it will be dark and/or out of focus tonight.
21:33:03 <ynpvisitor49> I think it is waiting for the moon to go down or for all of us to go to sleep.
21:34:45 <ynpvisitor57> I'm quitting at the next Old Faithful. Or sooner.
21:35:23 <ynpvisitor49> I am quitting as soon as my anti virus is done scanning.
