03:00:13 <ynpvisitor34> This nighttime view of Old Faithful is not the most attractive with the lodge lights in the background. The lights take away from that “nature” view.
03:34:52 <Joe> Hi CC/ do you have the cam
03:35:22 <ynpvisitorCC> Yes
03:35:41 <ynpvisitorCC> Did you want to see something
03:35:47 <Joe> OK I was wondering if that was you
03:36:06 <Joe> No, just checking
03:36:13 <ynpvisitorCC> okay
03:38:18 <Joe> Last night with the dark and snow, it seemed to be an exercise in futility to try to see anything.
03:38:40 <ynpvisitorCC> sent you a PM
03:40:13 <ynpvisitor103> Hi CC
03:40:18 <ynpvisitor103> Hi joe
03:40:19 <ynpvisitorCC> morning
03:42:15 <Joe> Hi linda
03:43:15 <ynpvisitorCC> Joe another PM
03:47:35 <Joe> I don't think we would have seen Grand this am at all from what I saw eariler
03:50:46 <Joe> It is good that there are bluetooth loggers on many geysers, we will have to wait forever for the information to be downloaded
03:51:27 <Joe> but we will eventualy get the information
03:55:48 <LindaG> Joe, hi
03:58:30 <Joe> CraigC told me about a comment made on TamiB's facebook post, I remember talking to that person he was headed to Yellowstone, and we discussed various tips on seeing geysers, he had asked about the come walker ;)
04:02:45 <LindaG> Joe, I knew it was you when he said thermopolis
04:03:19 <Joe> I meet many people at the Hot pools that are headed to and coming from YNP, we spend hours soaking and steaming discussing what was seen and what to see. It is surprising that most of them watch the camera
04:04:15 <ynpvisitorCC> I believe the Old Faithful webcam is the most watched site in the National Park System
04:04:35 <ynpvisitorCC> It's number one!!!
04:06:01 <LindaG> Yay
04:07:11 <ynpvisitorCC> Looks like Grand might be IE
04:08:07 <LindaG> It does
04:08:13 <Joe> Yes I think so
04:08:41 <LindaG> It's a whole new world 😊
04:09:28 <GO GIANT> morning
04:09:40 <LindaG> GO GIANT, morning
04:09:41 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Graham
04:10:37 <GO GIANT> where is the birthday boy, Dave?
04:11:06 <GO GIANT> very white out there
04:12:53 <ynpvisitorCC> I think Spasmodic might also have been going
04:18:27 <GO GIANT> looking forward t my turn on the cam this afternoon ... will be interesting to zoom around
04:19:03 <ynpvisitorCC> Especially down basin
04:21:04 <Joe> static shows Dame may be steaming
04:22:52 <ynpvisitor66> No Morning Grand?
04:23:57 <Joe> Aurum >>
04:23:58 <Joe> .
04:23:59 <Joe> .
04:24:17 <LindaG> Nice
04:24:28 <GO GIANT> of
04:24:29 <LindaG> So easy now
04:27:11 <ynpvisitorCC> Got Aurum but miss the start of OF
04:27:57 <Joe> .We have the static for OF :)
04:27:59 <GO GIANT> Kevin would be proud of you
04:33:57 <ynpvisitor26> Bubbler
04:34:02 <GO GIANT> will we see bee today?
04:34:24 <GO GIANT> bubblers
04:34:41 <GO GIANT> need the close-up focus fixed
04:34:48 <Joe> Yes Bee today!!!
04:35:10 <ynpvisitorCC> Definitely near the zoom fixed!
04:35:17 <ynpvisitorCC> need
04:35:53 <GO GIANT> i think it will go before i get on
04:36:15 <GO GIANT> interesting how hard it is to see the cone from here, blends into the background
04:36:31 <ynpvisitorCC> Tom is going to get late.You can take it at 9MT
04:36:43 <ynpvisitorCC> be late
04:37:10 <GO GIANT> i will be out then
04:37:19 <ynpvisitorCC> oh...okay
04:37:20 <GO GIANT> he is covering the start of my shift
04:38:02 <GO GIANT> taking my mom, niece, and and 5month old great nephew to lunch
04:41:54 <Joe> I think when they get the zoom focus fixed the overall focous will improve, I have been trying to figure why the view is just not quite right, answer: the cam is slightly out of focus.
04:42:37 <Joe> And that is amplified when zooming
04:43:57 <Joe> I hope it does not take popening the cam and manualy adjusting the lense
04:44:30 <Joe> opening*
04:46:07 <GO GIANT> i think Dave tred to fix it. really needs a minimum focus to prevent focusing on the dome and everything else focuses itself
04:52:49 <CraigC> mornin folks
04:55:02 <Joe> When the cam was swung to the right yesterday with a view of the roof, you could see where the Ubiquiti Unifi radio was mounted to communicate with the other part of ihe radio link for the camera
04:55:13 <Joe> Hi Craig
04:56:40 <CraigC> hey Joe, how ya doin
04:57:04 <Joe> Great Craig, and you?
04:57:29 <CraigC> pretty well.... slept in way late until 6:30 :)
04:58:00 <Joe> I was wondering what happened :)
05:01:19 <CraigC> hey Kitty
05:01:40 <KittyM*> hey, good morning Craig
05:02:31 <KittyM*> and Joe :)
05:02:39 <KittyM*> and anyone else
05:03:44 <GO GIANT> cam doesnt have a no-fog mode?
05:04:13 <CraigC> GO GIANT, maybe some more coffee will bring you out of it :)
05:04:52 <GO GIANT> true, i need another cup
05:04:55 <ynpvisitorCC> In a case like this I am just leaving it On OF
05:05:27 <CraigC> hey CC, how's it going?
05:05:39 <GO GIANT> or GH for BHI watch?
05:06:08 <GO GIANT> clearing fast now
05:06:20 <ynpvisitorCC> good but having difficult time adjusting to the new views after 15 years of having the cam in the tree
05:06:51 <CraigC> ynpvisitorCC, more coffee, the answer for everything
05:07:16 <GO GIANT> has it been that long? wow
05:07:20 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
05:07:30 <CraigC> hey 999, how ya doing
05:07:35 <Joe> Hi Jarno
05:07:37 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm doing good, you?
05:07:43 <GO GIANT> waiting for Lee to publich the history of the webcam
05:07:51 <CraigC> LOL
05:08:05 <CraigC> "Deaths on Webcam"
05:08:36 <CraigC> I have some good screenshots of tourists encroaching on bison
05:08:49 <GO GIANT> could be the crimes on the webcam ... conewalkers, boardwalk parkers
05:08:51 <Joe> Craig, what did you use to make and lable your map that you posted yesterday?
05:09:09 <CraigC> Joe, Google Earth, pics and the ruler feature
05:09:17 <CraigC> pins, not pics
05:09:32 <Joe> thanks
05:09:50 <CraigC> I need to re-do it, though, and position the Cam pin on the other end of the platform
05:10:13 <CraigC> and I want to see if there is any way to change colors on the lines
05:11:26 <GO GIANT> thats what we need, different steam colors for different geysers
05:13:19 <Joe> I am trying to use GIMP to make an image of what we see with the new cam views, down basin is the hardest as this new view has the geysers in positions I am not used to.
05:13:57 <ynpvisitor999®> almost looks as if the bees decided to swarm overnight
05:14:50 <Joe> Aurum steam
05:16:12 <CraigC> Joe, were you able to move the cam last night?
05:16:33 <Joe> Yes Craig I was
05:16:55 <CraigC> cool, I see your Grand and Rside entries
05:17:08 <CraigC> how's the night seeing?
05:17:17 <Joe> It was tough viewing, I did get Grand and Riverside
05:17:39 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
05:18:15 <Joe> I saw Lion trying many times but never saw it erupt
05:18:48 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, how odd
05:19:09 <GO GIANT> looks like bubbler is erupting
05:19:35 <ynpvisitor999®> wasn't it stuck in such a mode when NG decided to take over during the Geyser Hill disturbance?
05:20:31 <ynpvisitor71> UGB cams could use some "reasoned thought and engineering." We are going to lose a lot of data.
05:21:22 <ynpvisitor71> Satellite Internet for a Lodge rapidly refreshing static?
05:21:53 <Joe> There will be no more question at night "was that Lion or Bee?" :)
05:22:32 <ynpvisitor71> Activity at Bee
05:23:07 <ynpvisitor999®> those are its West Bubblers, 71, plus some splashing from its cone
05:23:48 <CraigC> ynpvisitor71, maybe someday GOSA will end up with a grant for another cam positioned for more efficiency
05:24:16 <ynpvisitor71> Bubblers seem to have become more active as of late. I miss CTC
05:25:51 <ynpvisitor71> Something reasonable should be put together and presented to the park / Forever / Canon. More bandwidth is million$ away.
05:26:19 <Joe> To me pump raises my excitment level every time it does what it is doing now :)
05:26:50 <CraigC> that's a better OF view than the default
05:27:13 <ynpvisitor71> USGS has an spare cell / solar cam in the closet.
05:27:33 <GO GIANT> gets dome in it
05:27:54 <GO GIANT> does it go any wider?
05:27:59 <GO GIANT> yes
05:28:22 <GO GIANT> might get Plume, hard to see the curve in the boardwalk
05:28:48 <ynpvisitor999®> I recall Amazon wanting to deploy satellite broadband internet - maybe an option in the future when the satellites actually are allowed to go into space?
05:30:19 <GO GIANT> nice lighting on the edge of the hill
05:30:30 <Joe> imjur
05:30:47 <GO GIANT> bubbler erupting
05:30:52 <Joe> wrong computer sorry
05:33:17 <Joe1> Graham we had this view from the cam yesterday https://imgur.com/a/wRoHTdr
05:34:09 <GO GIANT> nice, i saw some of it. need to check the overnight for the NG
05:34:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep ie
05:34:23 <GO GIANT> now you need to tag the ~100 fetures on geyser hill :)
05:34:47 <CraigC> LOL
05:34:54 <Joe> I'm trying, Large task :)
05:36:31 <Kent> I am wasting too much of what life I have left on this dingus!
05:37:25 <Joe> It is GOOD waste :)
05:37:54 <Joe> Hi Kent
05:38:02 <Kent> Down basin has become far too complicated. I am happy I have announce Sunday evenings have become Aurum only shifts
05:38:07 <Kent> Morning Joe
05:38:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Lc ie
05:38:25 <Kent> Forgot. Sorry. Good day sir
05:39:27 <GO GIANT> LIndas shifts will be LC all the time
05:39:34 <Joe> I was overwhelmed by yesterdays views, my pea brain has not caught up yet ;)
05:39:37 <Kent> :)
05:39:58 <GO GIANT> studying the views myself, figuring where things line up
05:40:18 <Kent> Bulger, Grotto, Beju, ...... I use to just ignore
05:40:28 <GO GIANT> always takes me a couple of days in-basin too, remembering where the down basin clouds are
05:40:42 <GO GIANT> bubbler quit erupting
05:41:17 <Kent> Daisy, Grand and perhaps Riverside. Those were mine before
05:42:23 <Joe> I will not be able to get down basin until August (if that) I need to sync the cam view with boots on ground.
05:42:41 <Kent> Craig did good with hs map. It helps
05:43:03 <Joe> Yes he did!!
05:43:09 <CraigC> thanks
05:43:18 <ynpvisitor999®> can we have a look at Castle? It's been 13h11m since its last major
05:43:27 <Kent> But the way, I love Sasquatch taking a dump. :)
05:43:32 <Kent> By
05:43:35 <CraigC> LOL
05:43:39 <GO GIANT> no GT prediction for it?
05:43:48 <CraigC> no, Squatch is stirring the fire with a stick
05:44:01 <ynpvisitor999®> no, probably because it doesn't know whether or not a minor or major preceded the major
05:44:24 <ynpvisitor999®> some jetting - not quite eruptive (yet)
05:44:43 <ynpvisitor999®> quite the solar streaks
05:45:14 <GO GIANT> so its ie now?
05:45:48 <Joe> Sasquatch taking a dump a new plus for the meriad group geysers view
05:46:05 <Kent> OK, if you want to be family friendly, but we all know what is really going on :)
05:46:07 <GO GIANT> morning sunglare isnt as bad as i expected it to be
05:46:24 <CraigC> maybe Squatch is multi tasking, doing both
05:46:34 <Kent> :)
05:46:38 <GO GIANT> bubbler ie?
05:46:41 <Joe> Myriad*
05:46:47 <CraigC> just be careful where you walk
05:46:50 <ynpvisitor79> Neither activity is allowed in the myriad group
05:47:09 <ynpvisitor78> Going to be hard to see Indy
05:47:30 <ynpvisitorCC> Bubblers very strong
05:47:46 <GO GIANT> it will put up a lot of steam anyway, and when bubbler stops eruption the view will be better
05:48:28 <Kent> Are bubblers predictive or not so much?
05:49:10 <GO GIANT> i think they indicate you are within a day of BH erupting
05:49:28 <Kent> :)
05:49:50 <GO GIANT> bubbler wuit
05:49:58 <GO GIANT> quit erupting
05:50:13 <Joe> Linda can't breathe when bubblers start, bad for her health
05:50:20 <ynpvisitorCC> small splash from cone
05:50:27 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like Porkchop has formed strong diurnal activity - measured 30°C during the day, near-ambient at night
05:50:43 <ynpvisitor999®> 30°C+, actually
05:51:05 <GO GIANT> thats interesting jarno .... critters must be pulling the sensor up and putting it back down in the morning
05:51:06 <GO GIANT> hehe
05:51:14 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
05:52:02 <GO GIANT> are we seeing the steam huffs from Aurum now?
05:52:28 <GO GIANT> looks like they are behind the boardwalk
05:53:05 <Kent> Doublet getting in the way also. I never thought I would dislike Doublet
05:53:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy
05:53:30 <ynpvisitor999®> .
05:53:31 <ynpvisitor999®> .
05:53:32 <ynpvisitor999®> .
05:53:33 <ynpvisitor999®> .
05:53:34 <ynpvisitor999®> .
05:54:48 <ynpvisitor999®> personally I'd say keep the cam on Beehive and use static for OF
05:55:07 <ynpvisitorCC> I can not do that
05:55:15 <ynpvisitorCC> NPS wants it on OF
05:57:50 <Joe> Indys first 'jet' was at 0753:15
05:57:52 <CraigC> hurry BH
05:59:05 <ynpvisitor3> CC, you and V have park plans anytime soon? (Kent)
05:59:05 <Joe> Almost heard JimS say "water in indicator" :)
05:59:41 <ynpvisitor999®> oh hi OF
05:59:53 <ynpvisitor999®> please be a short, this'd help massively
06:00:07 <Kent> Just won't stretch :(
06:00:34 <ynpvisitor78> It is a nice of though
06:01:04 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, I see how it is OF. You really dislike Beehive, don't you?
06:01:17 <ynpvisitor999®> anyway, OF long
06:01:39 <Kent> Different morning light from the previous position.
06:02:00 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed - makes some very pretty sights
06:02:24 <ynpvisitor999®> even some nice, non-intrusive solar glare
06:02:56 <Joe> Static is nice also
06:03:16 <ynpvisitor999®> especially that lighting on the cloud
06:03:42 <ynpvisitor CC> Who just moved the cam?
06:03:45 <Joe> A heavenly/alien Glow
06:03:52 <ynpvisitor CC> My internet went down.
06:04:12 <Joe> Not I
06:04:42 <Kent> Not I 2
06:05:22 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't even have access to the cam's dashboard or whatever that may be, so not me either
06:05:29 <ynpvisitor78> Not me. I am still in bed.
06:05:32 <Kent> :)
06:05:54 <ynpvisitor CC> BH
06:05:56 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
06:06:04 <CraigC> wahooooooo
06:06:40 <CraigC> this is the 1st BH on this cam, right?
06:07:02 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
06:07:03 <Joe> yes
06:07:05 <ynpvisitor78> Yes
06:07:33 <ynpvisitor CC> I am still here...I didn't quit
06:08:11 <Joe> You above all are not a quitter CC :)
06:09:24 <CraigC> BH even shows on static
06:09:44 <Kent> Blue sky in our future
06:10:48 <ynpvisitor999®> that was fun
06:11:16 <CraigC> ynpvisitor CC, did you see YNP FB page post about the cam and volunteers?
06:11:39 <Joe> Congrats CC first Bee new cam.
06:12:01 <Kent> Bee love CC :)
06:12:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle looks rather quiet if you'd ask me
06:13:09 <ynpvisitor999®> so I guess we did catch it ie then
06:13:10 <Kent> Ping for Giant please
06:16:36 <ynpvisitor CC> That is true Kent....BH Loves me!!
06:18:00 <ynpvisitor...> I'm happy you got the first one. Appropriate!
06:18:19 <ynpvisitor CC> thanks
06:19:32 <Joe1> CC post it on GT I'll delete mine
06:20:29 <GO GIANT> so BHI started as soon as i left for a shower. oh well, shower was nice too
06:21:03 <GO GIANT> headed out for groceries, enjoy Giant
06:21:08 <ynpvisitor CC> No Problem....your post is fine
06:21:13 <CraigC> cya GG
06:21:21 <ynpvisitor CC> Bye Craig
06:21:33 <CraigC> I'm not leaving, GG is
06:21:54 <ynpvisitor CC> oh sorry
06:21:59 <CraigC> :)
06:23:48 <CraigC> that's a cool opening
06:30:00 <CraigC> Sasquatch
06:30:49 <CraigC> cliff geyser to the right of Mugwump
06:31:41 <CraigC> Punchbowl steam?
06:32:20 <CraigC> hey Kevin
06:32:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
06:36:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll be away for a while. Have fun waiting for Lion to wake up.
06:37:44 <CraigC> Dave from B's birthday today
06:46:37 <CraigC> spasmodic
06:47:06 <CraigC> is it penta steaming to the left?
06:47:12 <ynpvisitor CC> focus is terrible zoomed in
06:48:10 <ynpvisitor CC> Lion
06:48:11 <ynpvisitor...> Lion
06:48:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice
06:48:33 <ynpvisitor CC> This Lion is an initial
06:49:07 <CraigC> :lion:
06:52:28 <CraigC> hey Chris
06:52:35 <ChrisO> hey :)
06:56:36 <ynpvisitor109> Did Cam ops ever zoom all the way in on old camera?
06:56:39 <ynpvisitor CC> Any other Cam operators in the Chat room?
06:57:03 <ynpvisitor CC> Yes I had the tree in view a few minutes ago.
06:57:23 <ynpvisitor78> Good Morning Y'all. Amazing views, Thank you Cam Op.
06:57:40 <Kevin L™🌵> I am here
06:57:40 <ynpvisitor10> Yes CC Joe here
06:58:15 <ynpvisitor CC> I have to leave. Do you want to take cam until Tom gets on?
06:58:22 <ynpvisitor109> No. When using old camera did you zoom all the way in and it was clear in focus?
06:59:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Go for it Joe. I am going to have to leave myself.
06:59:02 <ynpvisitor10> I can If Kevin does not
06:59:11 <ynpvisitor10> OK
06:59:15 <ynpvisitor109> Zooms tend to lose clarity compared to wide angle
07:00:09 <ynpvisitor CC> bye all
07:00:16 <ynpvisitor10> got it CC
07:00:17 <CraigC> cya CC
07:02:19 <ynpvisitor10> 109 does that answer your question
07:04:02 <ynpvisitor65> Thought it was my time (0900) to take the cam, but someone took it back. ?? Tom Kearney
07:04:40 <ynpvisitor10> 109 you asked about old camera, sorry yes the focus was very good zoomed in allthe way on old cam
07:05:35 <ynpvisitor10> Sorry tom CC thought you would be late and passed it to me, take it now
07:05:52 <Kevin L™🌵> It does show you as 0900 on the schedule Tom.
07:06:14 <ynpvisitor65> Don't know why you thought I would be late. ??
07:07:28 <ynpvisitor...> Giantess liking the early morning cold
07:07:40 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it was Graham that said he would be late today.
07:07:40 <ynpvisitor10> I read CC's message above wrong when she asked me to take the cam, sorry
07:07:43 <ynpvisitor65> Graham will be late at 1300, so I'm keeoing the cam until he shows up. logging.
07:08:46 <ynpvisitor65> PS, got to check all the new settings, so cam will be all over the place for the next 15 minutes or so.
07:09:46 <Kevin L™🌵> They are general. We had to do quickies without the geysers erupting so they will be a bit off.
07:10:04 <CraigC> don't miss the view of Sasquatch at Three Sisters
07:13:01 <ynpvisitor...> Focus a bit sad. I hope it can be tweaked
07:16:16 <ynpvisitor65> Darn, I missed Sasquatch. He must have gone into the lower store.
07:18:57 <CraigC> I bet he is still there... you have to squint a little to spot him
07:19:16 <ynpvisitor...> He went for marshmellows. It is well known that Yetis love marshmellows (and Smores)
07:19:39 <ynpvisitor65> :)
07:20:28 <CraigC> Once you see him there, you will never unsee him
07:25:15 <ynpvisitor65> Can't keep an eye on Daisy and Lion at the same time?
07:28:01 <ynpvisitor...> Fluf 0927 ie
07:28:58 <CraigC> nice on static
07:33:21 <ChrisO> anyone see any bison at all this morning :)
07:34:09 <CraigC> not yet
07:34:25 <GO GIANT> how was Giant?
07:38:16 <ynpvisitor65> switching to my laptop for this site.
07:39:51 <ynpvisitor108> How long has this site been around, and why didn't anybody tell me about it? TomK
07:41:39 <GO GIANT> chat page has been around for years
07:41:59 <GO GIANT> has changed formats several times and improved over the years. theres a mobile chat page too
07:42:53 <GO GIANT> theres a facebook page (mostly dormant), its linked from the geysertimes app and web site
07:43:20 <GO GIANT> not heavily advertised tho. how did you find us?
07:43:59 <GO GIANT> the cam moved the Inn this week so the view is different
07:44:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I have been using it for over 8 years. Eric really spiced it up with information. We didn't realize you didn't know about it Tom.
07:44:58 <GO GIANT> ah Tom, now I know how you found us :)
07:45:06 <ynpvisitor10> TomK you are talking to Graham a camop as GOGIANT
07:45:07 <ynpvisitor108> Graham e-mailed me last night
07:45:17 <GO GIANT> Graham here, abot to go out tho
07:45:31 <ynpvisitor10> Sorry Graham I'm slow
07:45:32 <GO GIANT> most cam ops hang out here on shift ... other eyes help us catch more eruptions
07:45:39 <ynpvisitor108> TY
07:45:53 <GO GIANT> thts ok .. you will figure me out ... I am GO something
07:46:17 <ynpvisitor10> Tom I' Joe camop hiding as a number
07:46:30 <ynpvisitor10> I'm
07:46:36 <Kevin L™🌵> There are some great eyes here to spot things.
07:47:19 <GO GIANT> helpful hints when the cam is down basin .. like "is that OF I see on static"....oops
07:48:18 <Kevin L™🌵> The prediction board is great.
07:48:27 <GO GIANT> new cam iews are nice
07:48:27 <ynpvisitor108> Yes, oops this morning
07:48:52 <GO GIANT> i meant that just in general ..... happens to everyone
07:49:09 <CraigC> LOL @ oooops
07:49:20 <ynpvisitor10> Who can type faster than I tell Tom how to change his nane
07:49:23 <GO GIANT> sometimes peeps in the park will come in here and report on things too
07:49:32 <GO GIANT> like hot periods
07:50:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Click on the visitor # next to the line you enter text on to change your name.
07:51:15 <GO GIANT> congrats to you Kevin, Knights recovered
07:52:06 <Kevin L™🌵> That was a strange game. Up 3-0 only to be tied 3-3 within 2m
07:52:08 <GO GIANT> its Daves birthdy too, i am sure he enjoyed the Isles victory
07:52:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes he did. He popped up here.
07:52:37 <GO GIANT> ah, ok, missed him
07:52:57 <Kevin L™🌵> He was just a number.
07:53:11 <GO GIANT> birthday and his wife left him home alone? what could possibly go wrong
07:53:43 <ynpvisitor10> Daisy
07:53:52 <GO GIANT> yeah Daisy
07:54:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like we missed that preset bad!
07:55:25 <GO GIANT> its a lot further left from this spot
07:56:08 <Kevin L™🌵> We were trying to get them in before Dave's vacation.
07:58:27 <ynpvisitor10> Is that old tardy
07:58:57 <Kevin L™🌵> It may be
08:01:03 <Joe> Haven't got my head wraped around this view yet
08:01:11 <GO GIANT> bulger
08:01:12 <ynpvisitor108> I missed Daisy too?
08:01:27 <Kevin L™🌵> It was in there.
08:01:54 <ynpvisitor108> don't know where to be looking yet.
08:02:17 <GO GIANT> can see oblong, Grotto, and Giant in this view
08:02:44 <GO GIANT> you can see the boardwalk from Grand to Oblong
08:03:05 <GO GIANT> Oblong is the steam drifting low level
08:03:33 <GO GIANT> Grotto was the more distant stem and the thicker steam slightly to the right was from Giant/Mastiff/Bijou area
08:03:33 <Joe> Lion
08:03:35 <ynpvisitor108> Lion should be soon, switched to geyser hill. Tomk. Trying to think of a cute name for this site.
08:03:51 <GO GIANT> Lion
08:04:16 <GO GIANT> far left
08:04:23 <ynpvisitor108> Darned geysers, know when you're not looking
08:05:19 <GO GIANT> and for reference, you can see the boardwalk line on the right off Lion. NG erupts at the end of that line, slightly to the left
08:05:51 <GO GIANT> and grove is further on that line in the hole in the trees
08:06:14 <Joe> Lion in this view is much smaller, I believe I saw Lion last night a few timed after seeing Grand, did not realise what I was looking at
08:06:52 <GO GIANT> and Little CUb is slightly to the left of Lion
08:06:55 <Joe> Can probably find it on the replay
08:07:35 <GO GIANT> shold get a good view of the Big Cub and Lioness eruptions :)
08:08:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Time for some training. bbl
08:09:11 <GO GIANT> time for lunch .. bbl
08:09:26 <Joe> Grand is almost 11 hours now, I see turban is active
08:09:28 <ynpvisitor...> Grand?
08:10:06 <Joe> Hi Tom Kent I think turban
08:10:20 <ynpvisitor...> Thanks
08:10:55 <Joe> Grand was just left last night
08:11:21 <ynpvisitor53> Big steam downbasin?
08:11:36 <Joe> Jets show just left of tall skinny tree
08:11:51 <ynpvisitor...> Ya, not seeing any spikes
08:12:12 <ynpvisitor...> I am glad I used a ? :)
08:12:14 <Joe> that might be Grotto back there
08:12:48 <TomK> Tom Kearney... There's another Tom K in the group?
08:12:52 <Joe> I think grand within the hour
08:14:02 <Joe> Tom I was speaking to you and Kent, I created confusion
08:14:16 <ynpvisitor53> I think that was Grotto start.
08:14:42 <TomK> I don't need any help to be confused... :)
08:15:25 <Joe> I"m old and confused all the time :)
08:18:07 <ynpvisitor103> Curious to know it’s possible to see a Rocket Major now
08:18:14 <Joe> Spasmodic in front of that skinny tree
08:18:44 <Joe> Yes Rocket should show well
08:18:59 <ynpvisitor103> Cool
08:20:09 <Joe> Even sprinkler shows well on the river bank
08:21:12 <Kat> Great Sprinkler view :)
08:22:44 <Joe> Grotto (i think) is fantastic in this view
08:24:20 <Joe> Polly posted it on GT so now I know exactly where Grotto is :)
08:25:25 <ynpvisitor103> Trying to use TSB’s book for reference
08:28:37 <ynpvisitor103> Great views down Basin!
08:28:45 <Joe> those two trees are nice markers for grotto
08:32:14 <Joe> when oblong erupts it will be no question
08:35:08 <ynpvisitor103> So Riverside would be visible now somewhere behind Grotto?
08:35:29 <Michael> Riverside is farther to the right.
08:36:09 <ynpvisitor103> Ok
08:36:09 <Joe> In the trees to the right you will see it in about 30-45 min
08:36:09 <Michael> I don't have a good landmark behind it, but those foreground dead trees at the right of the frame are in front of it.
08:37:08 <CraigC> a rough map with lines; https://imgur.com/L8zzFNm
08:37:45 <Joe> I'm using your map now Craig
08:39:13 <Joe> Rocket geyser map
08:39:31 <Joe> wrong computer again
08:40:39 <CraigC> how many computers do you use?
08:40:55 <Joe> Three
08:41:01 <CraigC> nice
08:41:20 <CraigC> I have one behind me I haven't powered up in almost a year
08:42:12 <Joe> I have therr linux boxes I play with
08:42:20 <Joe> three
08:42:53 <Joe> now if only i couls learn what i an doing
08:43:01 <Joe> could
08:43:51 <ynpvisitor66> How come no BH text ? Was it nice from this cam?
08:44:56 <Joe> i haven't been able to log in to rained out to text, sorry
08:45:14 <Joe> And yes very nice
08:45:17 <CraigC> I might be the lone wolf that thinks the previous cam had a nicer angle for BH, but I like this view on pretty much everything else
08:45:19 <ynpvisitor66> Oh bummer
08:45:42 <ynpvisitor66> Did it seem shorter?
08:46:18 <CraigC> you mean height? yeah
08:46:29 <ynpvisitor66> Yes, thanks
08:46:30 <Joe> no it was very tall
08:46:40 <ynpvisitor66> Ha
08:46:57 <CraigC> it seemed like the angle from the old one made it stand more prominent, IMO
08:48:22 <Joe> If this cam was fitted with a 105 degree or wider lens, It would be the love of our life
08:48:31 <CraigC> yeah
08:48:45 <CraigC> what is it now?
08:49:00 <Joe> 60 degrees
08:49:32 <ynpvisitor66> Odd they didn’t think of that
08:50:02 <ynpvisitor66> I guess they count on cam ops moving it about
08:50:42 <Joe> 60 degrees from the tree gave us everything considering the distance
08:54:51 <TomK> OF in the window, but Lion could go soon. A wider angle lens could catch both.
08:55:49 <CraigC> wonder why they didn't mount at VEC
08:59:26 <Joe> Too many buildings in theway, and heaven forbid, put a tower on or near their beautiful (ugly) buildtng
08:59:38 <CraigC> :)
09:00:32 <Michael> OF
09:00:36 <CraigC> OF
09:01:44 <ynpvisitor26> Too many trees in the way, like what we get on the static cam.
09:02:03 <Joe> yes
09:02:29 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
09:03:15 <ynpvisitor26> Your welcome to look at lens options, I do not believe there is a different lens for this camera.
09:03:55 <ynpvisitor26> The model number was posted some time ago and I looked.
09:04:12 <Joe> probably not, wider would have been nice though
09:05:08 <ynpvisitor26> It snewed.
09:05:19 <Joe> VBH41 if I remember correctly
09:05:19 <CraigC> :lion:
09:05:33 <CraigC> ie
09:05:50 <TomK> end of lion eruption
09:06:00 <CraigC> way to catch it, though
09:06:32 <CraigC> you guys have a tough job now juggling the OF priority and appeasing us gazers
09:06:49 <ynpvisitor26> Going to be a lot of fishing, and catching.
09:07:00 <Joe> It drives me even nuttier.
09:07:04 <CraigC> grotto
09:08:04 <Michael> Might hve seen Vent going there. But I'm a peessimist by nature.
09:09:31 <TomK> I'm going to try to monitor Castle and Grand as close as possiblein the down basin view.
09:10:32 <ynpvisitor26> Riverside' soon also.
09:10:50 <Michael> Never mind, what I thought was Vent was actually Bijou.
09:11:09 <Michael> slightly angled geysers all look alike.
09:11:13 <TomK> Where would Riverside be in this view
09:11:14 <ynpvisitor26> All trees to me
09:11:15 <ynpvisitor103> You can just barely see the steam from Giant/Bijou now if you look closely
09:11:41 <Michael> Riverside is off-screen to the right by a bit.
09:11:45 <CraigC> Riverside will be out of the view to the right, slightly
09:12:07 <CraigC> about where the lone white tree top is
09:12:41 <TomK> TY
09:12:51 <Joe> Yes 103 looks good
09:13:23 <CraigC> Joe, have you taken a screen shot of Riverside?
09:14:03 <TomK> No report on Castle, but we could see the steam just off the left
09:14:28 <Joe> No I havent Craig
09:15:08 <CraigC> Riverside threw me off more than any other feature on this new angle
09:15:12 <Joe> It should be on the overnight though
09:15:35 <CraigC> hey Casey
09:15:41 <Casey> Morning
09:15:41 <Joe> Surprised me when I saw it
09:16:09 <ynpvisitor26> sprinkler
09:16:28 <Casey> Looks like I've missed a lot. How have the new angles looked?
09:16:31 <Joe> yes
09:17:00 <Joe> takes getting used to Casey
09:17:09 <ynpvisitor22> So, what is steaming in the middle right now?
09:17:24 <ynpvisitor103> Unfortunately Castle does obscure Daisy a bit now, but at least we don’t have to worry about Fluffy anymore
09:17:26 <Joe> grotto
09:17:34 <CraigC> we give up a lot in the single view, but features look really cool on this one, but I like BH better on the old one
09:17:51 <ynpvisitor22> Thanks, that's what I thought, but I'm still trying to get my bearings (like everyone else.)
09:18:25 <CraigC> ynpvisitor22, Oblong is left of grotto, in front of thos trees
09:18:47 <Joe> Grand will pop up at that tall skinny tree
09:19:12 <ynpvisitor26> Grand got me, I thoght it would be closer to the dead trees.
09:19:39 <Casey> North Goggle yesterday was one of the coolest things I've seen on webcam in a long time.
09:19:40 <ynpvisitor...> Norris seismo yesterday. Plowing parking lot?
09:19:42 <ynpvisitor22> Thanks CraigC and Joe
09:19:59 <CraigC> Casey, same, and Marmot Cave, saw water spurting up
09:20:13 <Joe> yeah I was looking the wrong place first time I saw it on this cam
09:20:53 <Casey> I agree though, we are going to be much more dependent on camops. Thankfully there will be in-basin observations soon, so the predictions will be more current if nothing else.
09:21:52 <Joe> spasmodic is now behind those trees in front of the skinny tree
09:22:18 <CraigC> is Bulger steaming?
09:22:27 <ynpvisitor103> Too bad the NPS couldn’t move the static cam back to the old location
09:22:44 <ynpvisitor103> In the tree
09:22:49 <CraigC> can you zoom on bulger for a sec?
09:23:49 <Joe> the whole point of the move was they thought the tree was going to fall down
09:24:21 <TomK> Senior moment... Bulger location?
09:24:34 <CraigC> what is right of grotto?
09:24:42 <ynpvisitor103> Got it
09:24:45 <CraigC> bulger is middle just above sprinkler
09:25:08 <Betty> hi all
09:25:15 <CraigC> hey Betty!!
09:25:21 <Michael> Bulger will be obvious once it erupts for us.
09:25:22 <Joe> now if the static was moved to the OFL we would have a fantastic down basin view including OF
09:25:51 <Betty> hi CraigC, Michael and Joe
09:26:09 <CraigC> I haven't figured out specifically where Bulger is yet, that is why I wanted to see closer
09:26:16 <Joe> Hi betty welcome to the new Camera
09:26:30 <Betty> thx, Joe
09:26:44 <ynpvisitor26> Hang up your skis for hte year?
09:26:51 <Joe> Oops Betty*
09:26:53 <Betty> yup
09:27:42 <ynpvisitor17> Hi Betty!
09:27:44 <Michael> Grand!
09:27:50 <CraigC> :grand:
09:27:53 <Betty> we had great snow, but really bad weather
09:28:14 <ynpvisitor17> Woah! What happened to my name. If you are seeing ynpvisitor17 it is Casey
09:28:28 <Joe> there is the skinny tree
09:28:30 <Betty> hi Casey
09:28:32 <ynpvisitor17> Nice
09:28:47 <ynpvisitor26> I still think the best option is to put the old streaming cam where the static is and use it in static mode. We would get night view. Then update the image every 10 seconds or so.
09:29:21 <LindaG> Oh grand
09:29:35 <Joe> :)
09:29:39 <LindaG> Hi betty
09:29:40 <CraigC> ynpvisitor26, the static location doesnt lion, barely the edge of BH
09:29:50 <ynpvisitor26> The little skinny tree, I thought you meant the grand' skinny tree next to it.
09:29:51 <Betty> hi Linda
09:30:01 <CraigC> hey Linda
09:30:13 <ynpvisitor26> They could bump it a bit.
09:30:21 <CraigC> true
09:30:41 <LindaG> There's a little tree that points right a bee, very convenient
09:31:11 <ynpvisitor26> But they won't do that. They have this one to show us one geyser at night.
09:31:29 <Joe> 26 yester day the wind was blowing more hence my tall skinny tree :) now short skinny tree
09:31:38 <CraigC> ynpvisitor26, Joe caught some geysers last night
09:32:02 <ynpvisitor26> It still is a good land mark
09:32:10 <Betty> did you move the cam at night?
09:32:18 <Joe> yes
09:32:23 <CraigC> Rogue Joe
09:33:13 <Joe> we are permitted now, they will have a Grand to BH preset soon for nights
09:33:25 <Betty> the steam in the background is Grotto?
09:33:26 <CraigC> nice
09:33:27 <ynpvisitor103> Excellent
09:33:37 <Joe> yes
09:33:47 <CraigC> Joe, when is window for Lion again?
09:33:51 <ynpvisitor66> For the whole night ? No OF?
09:34:06 <ynpvisitor26> Now we just need a few insomniacs.
09:34:09 <Joe> 1206+
09:34:16 <CraigC> thanks
09:34:24 <Joe> 66 yes
09:34:26 <ynpvisitor103> Still hoping to see Rocket!
09:34:38 <CraigC> what happened to that Jake that temped some night?
09:34:55 <Joe> that may be it behind grotto
09:35:18 <TomK> Lion noonish +++
09:36:03 <LindaG> How did lion look?
09:36:29 <CraigC> proud
09:36:31 <Joe> smaller than usual on this cam
09:36:57 <Joe> Rside soon or missed allready
09:36:59 <ynpvisitor26> Everything is shorter.
09:37:13 <LindaG> Yeah it is difficult. Bee is real hard to see.
09:37:54 <Joe> I may have missed som lions last night not realizing what I saw
09:38:06 <ynpvisitor103> Caught Aurum last night. It’s much better now.
09:38:11 <ynpvisitor26> riverside' in half an hour or so base don the double interval and a guess.
09:38:18 <Joe> that is how much different
09:39:00 <LindaG> I saw aurum last night when jarno called it, it was real nice!
09:39:16 <Joe> When Indy and Bee erupt will notice:)
09:39:33 <ynpvisitor26> There you go, sign Kevin up for night time Aurum' watch.
09:39:36 <ynpvisitor17> Long Grand Eruption
09:39:37 <Joe> you will*
09:39:44 <Betty> are there any "new" geysers visible compared to the other view?
09:39:47 <ynpvisitor17> I thought I just saw another spike
09:39:59 <Joe> many
09:40:11 <ynpvisitor26> Daisy is much better
09:40:16 <LindaG> Hopefully. I couldnt see bu blers, dont know if they were there or not. Should be interesting
09:40:18 <Michael> Bulger for sure.
09:40:28 <Joe> micah and graham were naming many yesterday
09:40:33 <LindaG> *bubblers
09:40:35 <Betty> Sprinkler
09:40:54 <ynpvisitor17> I've even been excited by the Pump eruptions. This vantage point lets you see water on a lot of smaller geysers.
09:40:56 <ynpvisitor26> And a river showed up.
09:41:26 <Joe> pump gets me out of my chair :)
09:42:23 <ynpvisitor103> There’s no question about Little Squirt now
09:42:25 <ynpvisitor26> Give Betty a quick tour.
09:42:34 <Betty> can we see water in Solitary? ;-)
09:42:35 <Joe> grand looked a long 1b
09:42:51 <Betty> oh, nice
09:42:55 <CraigC> Betty, there is a new creature lurking at Myriad
09:43:00 <ynpvisitor17> We still having focus issues when zoomed in?
09:43:15 <TomK> OF view
09:43:31 <TomK> GH
09:43:35 <CraigC> doublet pool looked amazing the first night
09:43:51 <TomK> indicator view
09:44:05 <TomK> BH
09:44:25 <TomK> Lion group
09:44:32 <Betty> great
09:44:48 <TomK> Depression
09:44:48 <Betty> NG must be fun
09:44:56 <ynpvisitor17> It was awesome
09:45:09 <TomK> Giantess view
09:45:12 <Betty> Dep is full
09:45:25 <TomK> Grand
09:45:41 <TomK> Daisy
09:45:46 <LindaG> Betty, we had a great NG yesterday, great view
09:45:58 <TomK> Castle
09:46:17 <Betty> the views are great, but we sure need 3 cams now :-p
09:46:21 <CraigC> Sasquatch
09:46:30 <Betty> ugh ohhhhhhh
09:46:38 <TomK> Myriad view, Sasquatch has left the building
09:46:40 <CraigC> see him?
09:46:43 <Betty> fun fun fun!
09:46:46 <LindaG> I know! Its true
09:47:07 <LindaG> Sasquatch h of myriad
09:47:12 <TomK> 'down basin'
09:47:22 <LindaG> CraigC, 😊
09:47:25 <ynpvisitor103> Great view of 3 Sisters
09:47:27 <CraigC> :)
09:47:36 <TomK> 'Down basin, wide'
09:47:39 <Betty> thanks, TomK :-)
09:48:02 <TomK> Aurum
09:48:04 <ynpvisitor26> Well, enjoy, the snow is making me cold.
09:48:23 <CraigC> TomK, tours are cool
09:48:38 <Betty> Pump is fun
09:48:43 <CraigC> how about showing her Dome
09:48:50 <LindaG> The only one I was really surprised with was location of riverside
09:49:09 <TomK> view change depends on my typing speed
09:49:19 <CraigC> LindaG, same, that oen threw me off
09:49:47 <LindaG> I would have never guessed it
09:50:14 <TomK> Dome
09:50:15 <Betty> will be fun to see how F&M and Giant will look like
09:50:19 <ynpvisitor...> This is fun?
09:50:43 <Betty> hi Kent
09:50:48 <LindaG> Is not?
09:50:59 <LindaG> ynpvisitor..., hi
09:51:08 <TomK> Geyser hill, waiting for Lion
09:51:13 <ynpvisitor...> Hi Betty. Glad you made it back here.
09:51:26 <Betty> thx
09:52:25 <Betty> I think we will miss a lot of stuff
09:53:27 <Betty> Big Anemone
09:53:42 <CraigC> I saw it, wasn;t sure
09:53:42 <LindaG> Well I guess geyser priorities will need to be set
09:54:09 <CraigC> I am still learning my features on the right hand side

09:59:40 <Steph> LindaG, it's weird seeing the full sized trees by Bee, remember when we both thought that little one was a bush???? ;)

10:11:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow! Another Aurum!
10:12:08 <Betty> hi Kevin
10:13:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Betty
10:13:41 <TomK> Daisy
10:13:51 <Betty> woot
10:16:40 <TomK> OF window soon, I have to move camera around 1224, but a quick 'down basin' first
10:16:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Who did That lousy preset?
10:16:52 <CraigC> Artemisia over the trees on the right?
10:17:05 <TomK> "notme!"
10:18:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that Oblong?
10:18:59 <CraigC> Oblong is just whiffs down flat
10:19:14 <CraigC> is Bulger erupting?
10:19:25 <Betty> I see bulger
10:19:40 <CraigC> Oblong is straight behind Bulger
10:20:22 <LindaG> So big one. Is grotto?
10:20:27 <CraigC> grotto
10:20:53 <CraigC> grotto is behind those trees, oblong in front
10:21:11 <TomK> Pix gets blurry on high magnification
10:21:26 <LindaG> Imguessmimwould never have guessed bulger either
10:21:55 <LindaG> Yikes. I guess I would never have guessed bulger
10:22:48 <CraigC> ducks ie
10:23:25 <LindaG> Tiny ducks lol
10:23:36 <Steph> That was seriously adorable!
10:23:38 <CraigC> not even sure they were ducks :)
10:24:03 <TomK> OF window. coffee refill time
10:24:33 <LindaG> They may be what we call peeps, sandpiper etc
10:24:34 <ChrisO> i just set my coffee pot up near the computer :)
10:24:52 <TomK> :)
10:25:18 <ChrisO> that mountain behind the OF basin, is that MCD?
10:27:14 <LindaG> This is pretty cool
10:27:35 <ynpvisitor14> mcd?
10:27:45 <ChrisO> mallard creek dome
10:29:45 <Steph> I noticed that no one entered the Solitary from 12:05, so I just did my FIRST GT entry. Aaaaaand, now I'm all sweaty and shaky. :lol::lol::lol:
10:29:53 <LindaG> TomK aurum didnt get in
10:29:55 <TomK> The flat one on the right might be MCD. 12 years with NPS at OF and I never looked from this angle
10:30:12 <CraigC> Steph, LOL
10:30:34 <ChrisO> looks closer to OF on the map lol..ty Tom :)
10:31:41 <Todd> Steph, that comment made me burst out laughing :-)
10:31:47 <LindaG> I think I saw aurum called
10:31:53 <CraigC> Steph, after 20 years of writing court reports to judges, I am more scared of entering in GT, and make sure Joe is watching over my shoulder
10:33:19 <ChrisO> Planning on making a trip out there for the first time this summer :)
10:33:51 <LindaG> I entered aurum with TomK as observer for 11:47 ie
10:34:45 <TomK> :)
10:35:01 <TomK> But I didn't even see it!
10:35:35 <Steph> TomK, I blew my first entry already, and didn't do that, even though you called Solitary. I'm fired.... :lol::lol::lol:
10:36:11 <ynpvisitor14> was it just a preset when you said Aurum?
10:36:46 <Betty> Did you see Aurum, Tom? you just made the tour to show me the locations.
10:37:07 <Betty> there was no Aurum erupting
10:37:20 <Kevin L™🌵> I commented about it since I thought it was another. Darn.
10:37:34 <TomK> Honest, I did not. It was just the tour
10:37:44 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
10:37:49 <Betty> noone entered OF
10:38:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Had me all excited
10:38:17 <Betty> it was ie when I came back
10:38:23 <TomK> I went through all the settings on the cam and now Aurum is a setting.
10:38:44 <Betty> yes
10:39:37 <Betty> Linda, you need to remove your entry
10:40:23 <TomK> Did anybody get OF start?
10:40:43 <Betty> I did not
10:40:48 <CraigC> not me
10:41:52 <TomK> Educated guess? The last time I guessed, I got a nastygram cause I was about 5 minutes off.
10:42:26 <CraigC> here is the static; https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/04132019/550.jpg
10:42:30 <Betty> It was ie 1233
10:42:57 <TomK> I can enter that... 1223 ie
10:43:08 <CraigC> static is off 3 minutes
10:43:15 <Betty> I already did
10:43:29 <TomK> TYVM
10:43:46 <Betty> yw
10:44:39 <LindaG> TomK, who saw aurum, I thought you called it
10:45:16 <Betty> Tom made a cam tour
10:45:22 <Todd> Comment from Kevin----Kevin L™🌵› I commented about it since I thought it was another. Darn.
10:45:36 <Betty> he pointed out the locations of the geysers
10:45:42 <LindaGp1> Ok ill delete
10:45:52 <Betty> thx
10:46:02 <Steph> I'm sad I missed the tour!
10:46:21 <LindaGp1> Gone
10:46:30 <CraigC> can you show myriad to Steph?
10:46:31 <ynpvisitor3> Great job on the cam today! Your jobs just got more interesting
10:47:01 <Steph> Oh yes, please!
10:47:26 <CraigC> if so, see if you can spot Sasquatch
10:47:53 <Betty> I did not spot Sasquatch
10:48:10 <CraigC> he was there, lurking over 3 sisters
10:48:12 <TomK> Myriad next. TY for the "good job" I'm going crazy learneig the new views
10:48:14 <Betty> doggie
10:48:19 <ChrisO> thought so
10:48:26 <Steph> You're doing great!
10:48:37 <ChrisO> was just about to ask if that was a doggie
10:48:40 <Betty> yes, great job
10:48:41 <CraigC> see him
10:48:52 <CraigC> dead center
10:48:55 <ynpvisitor3> Grotto’s still IE
10:49:08 <Steph> OOOO!
10:49:14 <CraigC> squatting
10:49:14 <Betty> ohh, yes, fun
10:50:13 <CraigC> so cool we can see back there
10:50:29 <TomK> Que? Doggie?
10:50:36 <ChrisO> bison
10:50:40 <Betty> Bison
10:52:22 <TomK> I guess I need a new monitor, new glasses or new eyes. I can't see the bison.
10:52:33 <ynpvisitor38> I think that Riverside is ie.
10:52:49 <CraigC> bison at previous view
10:53:45 <Steph> There's Mr. Bison
10:54:57 <ynpvisitor38> Oops, no Riverside. Steam behind the wrong trees.
10:55:11 <Betty> I don´t see Riverside
10:55:14 <TomK> I was looking for a bison in Myriad group. Don't need new eyes, need new brain.
10:55:23 <CraigC> LOL
10:55:25 <Steph> ynpvisitor38, I think that was Cliff ie.
10:55:28 <Betty> hahaha
10:55:28 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
10:57:05 <Steph> CraigC, what is being fluffy in the foreground across the river?
10:57:10 <ynpvisitor38> 😬
10:58:41 <ynpvisitor38> Maybe Bugler
10:58:49 <CraigC> I didnt see it
10:59:08 <CraigC> I was making picture of Squatch; https://imgur.com/rmx1dET
10:59:08 <Steph> ynpvisitor38, thank you!
10:59:55 <ynpvisitor3> Bijou! Neat
11:01:43 <Betty> I guess we can almost see waves on Grand :-)
11:02:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Surfs up!
11:05:42 <ynpvisitor99> Too bad we can’t see Giants cone...tracking hot periods would be fun
11:06:09 <Betty> Sprinkler
11:09:27 <TomK> switching from GH to downbasin to GH to try to catch any action
11:10:47 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
11:11:24 <LindaG> Oh didnt realize they saw bee this morning ☹
11:12:17 <CraigC> nice colors showing on this cam
11:13:04 <CraigC> anemone?
11:13:16 <ynpvisitor99> Is there talk about re-opening the boardwalk to Arum
11:13:24 <ynpvisitor99> ?
11:13:27 <CraigC> yes
11:13:31 <CraigC> soon
11:13:37 <TomK> Sponge?
11:13:38 <Steph> ynpvisitor99, I was thinking about that too! Thanks for info!
11:14:35 <ynpvisitor75> Do they need to re-route the boardwalk around the new feature, or has it calmed down?
11:14:53 <CraigC> just replace some boards and watch
11:15:21 <CraigC> (I believe)
11:15:55 <CraigC> is Kevin and Joe still here?
11:16:12 <Betty> bulger
11:16:21 <ynpvisitor56> I'm wondering about calling Grotto starts fom the web cam. Can one distinguish Grotto Ftn from Grotto on the WC?
11:16:50 <Kevin L™🌵> I am here
11:17:18 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, am I right about what Bill reported
11:18:33 <ynpvisitor99> We’ll have to see if Grotto Ftn is active this season
11:18:35 <Kevin L™🌵> I think so
11:19:47 <ynpvisitor56> It has been seen this winter. There'sno reason to assume it still isn't active is there?
11:20:59 <CraigC> something got rattled at Norris
11:22:31 <ynpvisitor99> Steamboat seems to have slowed down a little, unless the last interval was a double
11:23:29 <ynpvisitor99> Hard to believe that one was missed though
11:25:35 <Betty> Lion
11:25:35 <TomK> Lion
11:25:57 <TomK> I thought we missed it looking downbasin
11:26:24 <Betty> I think we may had a minor
11:29:38 <Betty> LC
11:30:11 <CraigC> on static I can see steam on the edge from this Lion, and one 77 mins ago, nothing in between
11:30:45 <Betty> Anemone big
11:31:11 <ynpvisitor91> TomK, is your shift longer now?
11:32:26 <ynpvisitor99> We can see Heart Spr now
11:32:39 <TomK> No, Graham had somethibg else to do, shold be on 1400 or so.
11:32:42 <ynpvisitor91> well not right now
11:32:50 <ynpvisitor91> nice to see you on chat
11:33:03 <Betty> look at the great color in Cascade
11:33:44 <ynpvisitor99> Blue!
11:33:53 <Betty> yup
11:34:16 <Betty> even on a grey day like today
11:34:17 <ynpvisitor99> Love that area by Chinese spr
11:34:30 <CraigC> where is heart?
11:34:33 <TomK> I didn't know about chat until graham mentioned it in an e-mail last night.
11:34:36 <ynpvisitor91> by Lion
11:34:38 <Betty> near Lion
11:34:47 <CraigC> thanks
11:35:00 <ynpvisitor91> I don't think we can see into it
11:35:42 <ynpvisitor91> It's right at this curve in the bw CraigC
11:35:58 <CraigC> we saw Marmot Cave erupt the first night with the new cam
11:36:09 <TomK> in the bend of the boardwalk
11:36:14 <Betty> yeah
11:36:33 <ynpvisitor91> it will be wonderful when they fix the blur
11:36:40 <CraigC> hope they get that focus fixed
11:36:41 <ynpvisitor99> Nice catch!
11:37:20 <ynpvisitor91> Craig if you walk Geyser Hill the night you get there, you will see it in person!
11:37:50 <CraigC> I've seen it, I just dont remember the names, or I did and forgot
11:38:01 <ynpvisitor91> we will have a good view of Obong now Betty
11:38:08 <TomK> That must still be grotto in this down basin view
11:38:14 <Betty> it´s one of the best views, Lion erupting with heart spring in front
11:38:19 <CraigC> the ones that get called out a lot here are sticking better
11:38:22 <ynpvisitor91> yes, with Bijou to the right
11:38:46 <ynpvisitor99> Yes that is a great photo spot for Lion
11:38:55 <Betty> now we just need Oblong to erupt again
11:39:09 <Betty> sprinkler
11:39:18 <ynpvisitor99> Or something in the Sawmill group
11:39:35 <ynpvisitor91> Poor Giant is in slumber I think
11:39:51 <CraigC> :(
11:40:12 <ynpvisitor91> would have been very fun to see it on this cam
11:40:21 <ynpvisitor99> Maybe. The fact that Grotto Ftn is going again makes me wonder...
11:40:31 <CraigC> I want to see a GHP this year, with or without eruption
11:40:39 <Betty> it just waited till we have this view
11:40:40 <ynpvisitor91> we don't know anything about current status of Grotto Fountain
11:42:12 <ynpvisitor91> and I don't think GHPs happen without Giant active
11:42:22 <ynpvisitor99> Can’t wait for opening day 91!
11:42:44 <ynpvisitor91> when is that 99?
11:42:45 <CraigC> hey Katie
11:42:49 <Katie> Quake at 11:51?
11:43:02 <Katie> Hey, Craig
11:43:13 <CraigC> is that noise on other seisoms?
11:43:32 <Katie> Yup. looked at all of them.
11:43:50 <CraigC> I have a hard time taking my eyes off of this :)
11:44:13 <ynpvisitor99> April 19. Soon :)
11:44:13 <ynpvisitor91> nothing on YNM at 1151
11:44:27 <Katie> Me too. Sitting in a hotel lobby waiting for a shuttle and watching this.
11:44:48 <CraigC> nothing of note from USGS
11:44:50 <GO GIANT> back. what did I miss?
11:45:16 <CraigC> https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/#%7B%22autoUpdate%22%3A%5B%22autoUpdate%22%5D%2C%22basemap%22%3A%22grayscale%22%2C%22feed%22%3A%221day_m25%22%2C%22listFormat%22%3A%22default%22%2C%22mapposition%22%3A%5B%5B37.87485339352928%2C-117.31201171875001%5D%2C%5B45.166547157856016%2C-99.73388671874999%5D%5D%2C%22overlays%22%3A%5B%22plates%22%5D%2C%22restrictListToMap%22%3A%5B%22restrictListToMap
11:46:40 <CraigC> YNM is 1256 noise
11:47:33 <ynpvisitor91> Betty my favorite so far was NG the other day. It was wonderful
11:47:40 <GO GIANT> i have taken the cam, thanks Tom
11:48:00 <ynpvisitor91> Glad you found chat TomK. Come back.
11:48:16 <CraigC> Tom, thanks for the tours
11:48:17 <Kevin L™🌵> It was nice having you on.
11:48:35 <ynpvisitor99> Thanks Tom!
11:48:52 <TomK> Later, folks. logging
11:49:00 <Betty> thank you so much, Tom
11:50:49 <Betty> fun to see Bijou
11:51:23 <Betty> hi Graham
11:52:25 <ynpvisitor91> hopefully we see a snowblower on the bike path this week
11:53:09 <ynpvisitor91> Graham testing the cam...
11:53:33 <Betty> :-)
11:54:19 <ynpvisitor91> Graham trying to break the cam...
11:55:30 <ynpvisitor91> your winter home...
11:56:09 <GO GIANT> will be able to see the snowcoaches and snowmobiles
11:56:47 <ynpvisitor91> what we've always wanted to see
11:57:20 <GO GIANT> have to wait a few months for them to come back
11:57:52 <Betty> we can see the old cam tree
11:57:53 <CraigC> find us a griz
11:58:15 <Betty> we´re in of window
11:58:47 <ynpvisitor91> Graham is a rebel
11:58:55 <GO GIANT> we can watch the tree fall?
11:58:59 <ynpvisitor91> CC missed OF this morning
11:59:16 <ynpvisitor91> I bet the tree hangs on for years
12:00:00 <ynpvisitor91> and from what Joe said, we will miss OF at night, cam preset will be BH to Grand
12:00:32 <ynpvisitor16> dome in view
12:01:43 <GO GIANT> doesnt quite get to Plume
12:01:57 <GO GIANT> on widest setting and OF on the far right
12:07:32 <ynpvisitor91> OF
12:07:42 <Betty> OF
12:08:32 <LindaG> Nice
12:09:26 <ynpvisitor999®> I see Lion has finally waken up
12:09:35 <Betty> evening Jarno
12:09:40 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
12:10:20 <LindaG> Hi jarno. How did bee look this morning?
12:11:07 <ynpvisitor999®> I was nice - did look smaller than on the old cam :D
12:12:15 <ynpvisitor54> You couldn't get in as close because of the focus....I liked the old view better.
12:13:53 <LindaG> Well maybe they can do something with close focus
12:14:25 <ynpvisitor54> what is going behind the trees?
12:14:55 <LindaG> So oblongi s to right of grotto?
12:15:01 <ynpvisitor> I need to clean my glasses, all fuzzy.
12:15:15 <Betty> no, left
12:15:29 <GO GIANT> oblong is to the left ... see the boardwalk from Grnd to Oblong?
12:15:31 <LindaG> Uh oh
12:15:55 <Betty> I think even left of the 2 trees
12:16:04 <ynpvisitor> The steam to the left of Grotto, and just right of behind spinkler.
12:16:10 <GO GIANT> the low light steam coming up past the boardwalk is fom blong
12:16:26 <Betty> I like Blong
12:16:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Blong? Never heard of it. Must be rare!
12:16:43 <LindaG> Ok I thi k I understand
12:16:58 <Betty> great view for spotting a Moose
12:17:17 <GO GIANT> so is that Grotto erupting, and steam slightly to the right is from Giant/Bijou?
12:17:19 <LindaG> Oh that would be great
12:17:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I did see some actual water jetting to the right of Grotto's plume
12:17:42 <ynpvisitor> Riverside is being bashful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNQokmxBUy8
12:17:52 <GO GIANT> Penta may be obscured by the trees tho
12:17:58 <Betty> I think the slightly to the right is Bijou
12:18:41 <Dave from home> Greetings everyone!
12:18:51 <LindaG> Dave from home, hi
12:18:54 <Betty> Happy birthday, Dave
12:18:54 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Dave
12:19:03 <CraigC> Dave from home, Happy Birthday
12:19:08 <GO GIANT> happy Day Dave
12:19:09 <Dave from home> Thanks Bety, CraigC
12:19:15 <Dave from home> Betty*
12:19:17 <ynpvisitor> Birthday, he is 65 now?
12:19:19 <LindaG> Oh yeah Happy Birthday!
12:19:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Happy birthday, Dave
12:19:32 <Dave from home> Thanks everyone
12:19:38 <GO GIANT> i would like the Lion group preset to be more like this, including Depression
12:19:41 <Dave from home> You have the numbers right but backwards:)
12:19:57 <CraigC> you're OLD
12:20:14 <GO GIANT> dave is 999?
12:20:22 <ynpvisitor999®> ...
12:21:05 <ynpvisitor> When he retires soon, he can take the night shift on the cam.
12:21:13 <GO GIANT> cameradoes not like focussing
12:21:33 <LindaG> So obvious hole to right of boardwalk is marmot?
12:21:34 <CraigC> he'll be too old to see
12:21:36 <ynpvisitor> LC' is easier to see
12:22:10 <GO GIANT> yes, thats the real cave. the geyser is just in front of t
12:22:43 <LindaG> Ah I thought it was further forward, was confused
12:23:15 <CraigC> LindaG, who is typing for you? I can understand you now
12:23:25 <ynpvisitor75> Need to give the camera op a telestrator pen, like in sports.
12:23:48 <LindaG> Let's wait for a marmot come out😉
12:24:12 <LindaG> CraigC, I hired a translator 😉
12:24:22 <CraigC> lol
12:25:53 <Betty> Marmot cave
12:26:10 <LindaG> Speak of the devil
12:26:16 <CraigC> nice
12:27:57 <ynpvisitor...> Marmot Cave. Our friend Janet has this covered. 2nd photo down
12:28:04 <ynpvisitor...> https://yellowstonenaturalist.com/?s=marmot+cave
12:30:11 <LindaG> Nice, thanks
12:30:18 <CraigC> love her blogs
12:30:31 <LindaG> I do too
12:31:03 <LindaG> That was one brave marmot
12:31:18 <ynpvisitor> Daisy is due?
12:32:00 <ynpvisitor91> Is Dave trying to say he is only 56?
12:32:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I think he is 39.
12:33:30 <ynpvisitor> He claimed double nickels last year. I think he is closer ot the speed limit in Montana.
12:33:56 <Dave from home> Sorry. Parker just called me. Yes, I'm only 56
12:34:17 <Kevin L™🌵> What did he call you?
12:34:22 <CraigC> How's Parker doing?
12:34:30 <LindaG> What are you doing for your birthday?
12:34:32 <Betty> Lion cough
12:34:38 <Dave from home> He didn't call me "old man". He knows better:)
12:35:20 <Dave from home> I'm doing chores, watching hockey, golf and nascar. We are celebrating my birthday when my wife returns on Monday
12:35:23 <CraigC> :daisy:
12:35:42 <LindaG> 👍
12:36:44 <LindaG> I stopped using presets on old cam, but they are helpful with the new one. Much quicker.
12:36:51 <Dave from home> I'm also getting 2 sets of taxes wrapped up
12:37:07 <LindaG> Hehe me too.
12:37:10 <ynpvisitor91> wow, waiting until the last minute
12:37:12 <Kevin L™🌵> My taxes wrapped me up. :P
12:37:33 <Dave from home> I'm a big procrastinator for that project
12:37:37 <ynpvisitor91> we got 1/2 of Daisy
12:37:38 <LindaG> I just havent put them in ink and mailed.
12:38:03 <Dave from home> How did BH look on the cam?
12:38:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
12:38:18 <LindaG> Jarno saw it
12:38:30 <Dave from home> and lc
12:38:46 <LindaG> Illmenter lc
12:38:59 <LindaG> Yikes I'll enter lc
12:39:10 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion seems to have a tough time really committing to this eruption
12:39:54 <Kevin L™🌵> BH was not bad at all Dave.
12:39:59 <Dave from home> Wind is knocking it down too
12:40:12 <Dave from home> How about Aurum?
12:40:38 <ynpvisitor999®> looks great - you can clearly see the angle and even the last splashes
12:40:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum was impressive.
12:41:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Almost looks taller on the cam than in person.
12:41:52 <LindaG> I saw aurum last night, cant miss it now
12:42:18 <Betty> depression heating up
12:42:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave already broke the new cam.
12:42:43 <Betty> bah
12:42:55 <LindaG> Back
12:42:55 <Dave from home> That's great. Time for me to leave then. Have a great day everyone!
12:43:08 <Steph> Have fun celebrating!
12:43:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight Dave.
12:43:30 <Betty> bye Dave
12:43:40 <LindaG> Camera looks like its warping, or shuttering g slightly
12:44:30 <ynpvisitor21> BH is very slightly washed out by GH as background and we are looking down at it. But,I love watching it from across the river, so yay! And, no fluffy steam. Net gain
12:46:51 <ynpvisitor...> We could use a critter or two. Haven't seen a coyote yet?
12:48:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I bet they will be harder to see up here.
12:49:49 <ynpvisitor...> Last night's Aurum on Yahoo is great
12:50:05 <ynpvisitor21> We might see motion but have to zoom to really see them.
12:50:45 <GO GIANT> and e cant zoom in close
12:51:26 <ynpvisitor21> Last night's Aurum was a thing of beauty! I have terrible luck catching it even on cam....
12:51:56 <ynpvisitor...> I certainly hope Dave can fix zoom when he returns
12:55:45 <LindaG> I think if we could zoom all the way , we'd see everything we want to see
12:55:51 <ynpvisitor21> I want the zoom fixed too, but we are still getting closer views of most geysers as is
12:56:14 <ynpvisitor...> I have now officially wasted days on this thing. See you all tomorrow night!
12:56:30 <ynpvisitor999®> cya
12:56:36 <LindaG> ynpvisitor..., bye
12:58:25 <ynpvisitor21> It's not wasted. This is citizen science. No, really. I can quit any time!
12:58:42 <LindaG> What's steaming right in front of us on hill?
12:59:16 <ynpvisitor999®> dead-center on the cam?
12:59:26 <LindaG> Yes
12:59:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Dragon I think
12:59:45 <Steph> I agree with Dragon
12:59:50 <LindaG> Ah ok
13:00:19 <LindaG> I have to conquer these one geyser at a time. 😊
13:02:06 <Steph> Ok, this view is where I need a lot of help!!
13:03:09 <LindaG> I believe big one in back is grotto
13:03:36 <Steph> Thanks!
13:03:52 <GO GIANT> yes, and lower t othe right is Bijou
13:04:10 <Steph> OOOO! Thank you!
13:04:27 <ynpvisitor999®> I wish we could zoom in very close to that area without it becoming blurry
13:04:55 <LindaG> And I think the low steaming to left of grotto is oblong - correct me if I'm wrong
13:04:56 <ynpvisitor21> Giant will be easier to see when Grotto off or wind shifts
13:04:58 <Steph> What is in front of that kind of across the way from Sprinkler?
13:05:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Turban ie?
13:05:32 <ynpvisitor91> if Giant erupts we will not even be thinking about Grotto, it will be behind it
13:05:53 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like Bijou just paused
13:06:02 <ynpvisitor999®> back on again
13:06:29 <ynpvisitor21> Haha. The complex, not the geyser.
13:06:56 <ynpvisitor91> Sawmill complex is in front toward Grand
13:07:14 <ynpvisitor21> We have a fighting chance to catch hot periods
13:07:49 <ynpvisitor91> well, we will see that Bijou is off
13:07:59 <Steph> That is cool!
13:08:36 <ynpvisitor21> I haven't figured out where riverside is yet. Anyone know.
13:09:16 <ynpvisitor91> where it has always been :)
13:09:26 <LindaG> Strangely when you are looking at grand it is to the left behind trees,
13:09:30 <Betty> hehehe
13:09:39 <LindaG> Sorry to right behind dntrees
13:09:48 <ynpvisitor91> just like you are in the basin
13:10:00 <ynpvisitor21> Where compared to Grotto?
13:10:03 <ynpvisitor91> and see Riverside from Grand
13:10:10 <ynpvisitor91> right
13:10:26 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll point you to a video, 21 - hold on
13:10:43 <ynpvisitor91> they will have a photo with all the geysers shown soon
13:11:02 <GO GIANT> Jarno - you cant be sure it was a pause from here. sometimes it slows down and almost stops but doesnt
13:11:05 <ynpvisitor21> Okay. I saw steam from around there yesterday.
13:11:26 <ynpvisitor91> I agree, about Bijou
13:11:50 <ynpvisitor30> If you see all the dead trees, and look to the right for a lone dead tree, that is what we were told this morning is the location of riverside'.
13:12:29 <ynpvisitor999®> https://youtu.be/gRljuoz1gBQ?t=10048 - this timestamp is just before Riverside appeared on the cam
13:12:32 <ynpvisitor21> Thanks!
13:12:39 <ynpvisitor30> Can only see it if the cam is pointed that far right. If we are looking at Daisy or Castle and Grand most likely no way to see that tree.
13:12:52 <Betty> bulger
13:12:58 <ynpvisitor30> That one
13:14:09 <ynpvisitor91> we would see it now
13:14:15 <Steph> ynpvisitor999®, Thanks for the video!
13:14:22 <LindaG> Yes to the right of dead trees is where riverside was
13:14:51 <ynpvisitor30> So when does everyone start asking about F&M?
13:15:03 <ynpvisitor91> when it starts erupting again?
13:15:33 <ynpvisitor91> it will be much easier to see now
13:15:33 <ynpvisitor21> Being physically closer narrows the field. I miss the old wife view while also loving the new and closer views
13:16:12 <ynpvisitor999®> MC
13:16:14 <ynpvisitor30> Old wife, you are not married are you?
13:16:23 <ynpvisitor91> 999, did you see Graham's comment about Bijou?
13:16:37 <ynpvisitor999®> I did, two seconds
13:16:47 <ynpvisitor21> *wide not wife.
13:17:14 <ynpvisitor30> If you squint, the focus is better.
13:17:26 <LindaG> 😊
13:17:49 <Steph> I just wear my old wife glasses, and I can see just fine. ;)
13:17:52 <ynpvisitor21> My autocorrect likes to write nonsense.
13:18:03 <LindaG> Mi e too!
13:18:06 <ynpvisitor30> Well off to the store, enjoy.
13:18:22 <LindaG> Or Mine too!
13:18:53 <ynpvisitor30> I like miss spelled words that make one wounder. It could have been wise view.
13:18:59 <Betty> BH splash
13:19:49 <LindaG> I had a French keyboard installed by accident and it would slip into French autocorrect. Hehe
13:21:21 <ynpvisitor21> Typos and autocorrect... Type fast and messy or careful and the conversation has moved on.
13:33:16 <ynpvisitor62> NG is being camera shy today
13:33:29 <ynpvisitor21> The cam is so afraid of lions it shudders when it sees them?
13:38:13 <ynpvisitor62> Kudos to the ops! The new cam really keeps you on your toes
13:41:12 <ynpvisitor62> It’s going to be interesting when prediction Windows overlap
13:41:51 <ynpvisitor91> we will miss things, unless ops go rogue, like Graham here
13:42:24 <ynpvisitor62> Yup
13:42:38 <ynpvisitor21> OF gets priority. Beyond that, it will be interesting.
13:43:50 <ynpvisitor91> preset button madness
13:44:07 <ynpvisitor62> Yes I missed BH waiting for Grand last summer. Should have stayed up at Castle and would have seen all 3 !
13:44:22 <ynpvisitor21> Clouds look like snow again. They make a great background for now.
13:45:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion iens
13:46:18 <ynpvisitor91> will be hard to tell if minor or not in situations like this
13:46:49 <ynpvisitor999®> could do a quick pan to Lion now
13:46:59 <CraigC> steam from Lion on static?
13:47:07 <Betty> yes
13:47:19 <Michael> good catch.
13:47:41 <CraigC> only one frame show sit
13:47:45 <CraigC> shows it
13:47:49 <ynpvisitor91> so maybe a minor
13:48:05 <GO GIANT> still on static
13:48:16 <ynpvisitor91> is it every minute? Static?
13:48:24 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
13:48:34 <CraigC> you're right, newest one does
13:48:39 <ynpvisitor62> They should adjust the static a little
13:48:42 <ynpvisitor91> weird, it skipped one. It was gone and then back
13:48:43 <GO GIANT> but not now
13:49:03 <GO GIANT> could be wind, or a pause and restart
13:49:17 <ynpvisitor91> so many ifs
13:49:46 <CraigC> just a small nudge to the left on the static, get BH and Lion
13:50:02 <ynpvisitor62> I like it!
13:50:06 <ynpvisitor91> maybe with the present situation VEC will be open to that
13:52:08 <CraigC> OF
13:52:22 <ynpvisitor62> Easier than moving it to the lodge like some have suggested, although I like that idea!
13:54:12 <ynpvisitor91> would we see Lion then?
13:56:39 <Michael> Someday I hope to see Mastiff in that downbasin view...
13:58:23 <ynpvisitor21> As pointed out yesterday, the solution is to simply move the Inn back until everything is in view.
13:59:04 <ynpvisitor17> I like the way you think, 21
13:59:47 <ynpvisitor21> Wasn't me...
14:07:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Drones. We need a drone cam.
14:09:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Doggies!
14:15:46 <GO GIANT> CAPS won .. but went to OT
14:17:09 <ynpvisitor21> Lots of critters on north entrance static
14:19:20 <ynpvisitor21> I love how visible sawmill complex is now!
14:26:37 <ynpvisitor55> Coming up on Grand’s window
14:37:13 <ynpvisitor50> I see doggies
14:37:24 <LindaG> Yeah
14:38:12 <LindaG> I saw little squirt too
14:39:10 <LindaG> Lc
14:42:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Am curious about Grand
14:42:34 <ynpvisitor999®> probably a bit too early though - maybe we could have half of GH and Grand in view?
14:43:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy is approaching too
14:46:19 <Steph> I haven't seen Grand from new camera, so I'm way excited! Plus Grand is just so awesome!!
14:50:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Oh, hi Lion
14:50:55 <ynpvisitor999®> near end
14:52:15 <ynpvisitor55> Nice long series
14:53:16 <GO GIANT> probably missing NG now
14:53:20 <ynpvisitor55> Decent view of Grotto now
14:54:10 <ynpvisitor55> And maybe Bijou?
14:54:45 <GO GIANT> i dont think its a very good view of either but you can tell theres steam from them
14:55:12 <ynpvisitor55> True
14:55:41 <Betty> looks like Aurum on static
14:55:50 <ynpvisitor999®> it's quite unfortunate you can't see Castle's cone from here
14:56:16 <Betty> gone
14:58:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
15:00:11 <ynpvisitor55> Castle is the new fluffy
15:02:16 <GO GIANT> bulger
15:09:41 <ynpvisitor84> what does that mean, Castle is the new fluffy?
15:11:10 <ynpvisitor84> I was hoping for Grand before OF
15:12:38 <ynpvisitor84> have you timed how long it takes you to change presets?
15:15:11 <ynpvisitor45> Those Turban times should help after the park opens.
15:15:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle?
15:16:00 <ynpvisitor45> Is opening day next weekend?
15:16:54 <ynpvisitor84> no Castle. Was that just a WAG 999?
15:17:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Probably a jet or two from Castle, 84
15:17:43 <ynpvisitor999®> but not enough to actually trigger an eruption
15:18:38 <GO GIANT> opening day is Frniday
15:18:39 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, I saw some jetting to the left of Bulger from the downbasin view.
15:18:54 <ynpvisitor999®> to the right*
15:19:00 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't know my directions
15:19:04 <CraigC> what was it?
15:19:09 <CraigC> I was going to ask
15:19:13 <ynpvisitor84> you saw a jet from Castle in the Grand view we were in ?
15:19:20 <ynpvisitor999®> steam of it
15:19:36 <ynpvisitor84> was it across the bw?
15:19:50 <CraigC> between spas and the boardwalk to theleft
15:19:58 <ynpvisitor999®> there, yes
15:20:22 <ynpvisitor999®> hi OF
15:20:35 <ynpvisitor999®> 1720 ns
15:20:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll look in Geysers of Yellowstone what it could be
15:21:21 <GO GIANT> no more groblong calls
15:21:35 <ynpvisitor84> yes, that is good
15:22:07 <ynpvisitor84> but inside the loop, not Rift area?
15:22:22 <ynpvisitor999®> no idea, would need a closer look 84
15:22:34 <ynpvisitor84> we'll be back
15:22:41 <CraigC> could it be penta?
15:22:47 <ynpvisitor84> not active
15:22:52 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe OT
15:22:54 <ynpvisitor84> oval pool maybe
15:22:56 <CraigC> what is active there
15:22:57 <GO GIANT> maybe OT?
15:23:07 <Steph> I was thinking OT too
15:23:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Old Tardy would be the most likely one at the moment
15:23:21 <ynpvisitor84> yes, OT is there, and the little one, Nifty that can put out quite a bit of steam though tiny
15:23:27 <ynpvisitor999®> though I wouldn't say no to Penta, that's for sure
15:23:37 <Steph> Oh how I love the sound of an OT drain!
15:23:40 <ynpvisitor84> I would
15:23:45 <ynpvisitor84> say no
15:24:07 <ynpvisitor84> I think this started right as we moved back to OF
15:24:11 <CraigC> looks further away from penta now that I look at it
15:24:34 <ynpvisitor84> From what I understand Sawmill will have to come back to have Penta
15:24:34 <Betty> grand
15:25:00 <ynpvisitor84> Oops, forgot to write Grand in front of that.
15:25:11 <ynpvisitor999®> doesn't necessarily have to be that way, 84 - Sawmill complex could switch to Penta-Churn without needing to have Sawmill first
15:25:27 <ynpvisitor84> ok, I'm all for Penta. Thanks 999
15:25:35 <ynpvisitor84> I love Penta
15:25:47 <ynpvisitor999®> but to me the most likely one is Old Tardy
15:26:01 <Betty> looks like in front of bw to me
15:26:11 <ynpvisitor84> nothing from Penta area right now
15:26:35 <ynpvisitor84> you mean toward the cam?
15:26:36 <GO GIANT> all i see now is spasmo and steam from the runoff
15:26:47 <ynpvisitor84> that is Twilight pool
15:27:07 <GO GIANT> yeah steam from Twilight too
15:27:19 <ynpvisitor84> not sure what Betty was asking
15:28:14 <CraigC> looking at the GT map and where it looked inside the boardwalks, I believe it was Old Tardy
15:28:41 <Betty> the steam I see is in front of the loop bw, so I think what Graham said - Spasmodic runoff
15:28:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Here's an image of the area where I saw the jetting: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XKAByQCvbC9R8pKxwIfiSuyF_eyFiNhA
15:28:49 <ynpvisitor84> cool
15:28:59 <ynpvisitor84> 2nds are fun
15:29:13 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, yeah, same where I saw it
15:29:30 <Steph> Yep, I vote OT again.
15:29:48 <ynpvisitor84> Graham?
15:30:20 <ynpvisitor84> I don't see it
15:30:46 <Michael> The line in the picture points to the Crystal Spring/Old Tardy area. And only one of those make jets.
15:31:03 <ynpvisitor84> fun to watch the second rise like that, on a clear day that will be even better
15:31:10 <Betty> it was before OF, so it must be gone now
15:32:01 <ynpvisitor84> I thought Steph meant again, for OT.
15:32:05 <Rich> G'day Everyone
15:32:12 <CraigC> hey Rich
15:32:24 <Rich> hi craig ?
15:32:25 <Betty> hi Rich
15:32:39 <Rich> hi betty
15:32:53 <Steph> Oh sorry, I meant after I looked at ynpvisitor999® image, I again thought it was OT.
15:33:13 <ynpvisitor84> My mistake
15:34:59 <ynpvisitor12> Doggies
15:36:13 <Rich> Is anyone working on the remap of the ogb?
15:36:28 <Rich> ugb
15:37:06 <ynpvisitor84> yes, I know Kevin is part of that
15:37:27 <ynpvisitor84> there is one in the works
15:38:38 <ynpvisitor84> Was that Castle just starting?
15:38:50 <Rich> thanks, Inwas just stat thging to collect pic ax
15:39:39 <ynpvisitor84> nope, just steam again
15:39:43 <Rich> spell ckeck working against me
15:41:44 <Michael> Castle likes to make lots of steam. If it didn't have a minor eruption last time, then look for it to go around 21:00.
15:43:45 <Rich> hi Kevin L
15:43:52 <Steph> With the last camera, I literally could never tell when Castle was serious and when it wasn't. :lol::lol::lol:
15:47:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Grove steam
15:47:49 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
15:51:49 <ynpvisitor999®> roar
15:53:07 <CraigC> doggies on static
15:54:12 <CraigC> mar mot cave
15:54:12 <Michael> Marmot Cave
15:54:40 <ynpvisitor999®> big roar
15:57:19 <ynpvisitor999®> is that white area at the center of the frame Ear Spring and its September wash area?
15:58:07 <ynpvisitor84> yes 999
15:58:39 <ynpvisitor84> There is a little bench across from it
15:58:55 <Michael> It wasn't really vegetated before September, but maybe just a little less afterwards.
16:02:14 <GO GIANT> riverside
16:02:50 <Betty> yeah
16:04:09 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching Lion if it still continues
16:04:13 <Michael> Hi, Beehive
16:04:16 <CraigC> cya 999
16:04:26 <Michael> See you, 999
16:04:37 <Steph> Bye!
16:04:48 <Betty> night Jarno
16:10:25 <CraigC> :lion:
16:10:44 <CraigC> sluggish
16:11:00 <Betty> fun
16:12:27 <Michael> Nice to have Lion keep us company for so much of the day.
16:12:45 <CraigC> Marmot Cave go again?
16:13:08 <Betty> yep
16:13:19 <CraigC> too blurry to me to tell if water is coming up
16:17:41 <Michael> Now Castle is going.
16:18:56 <Michael> Probably not going to erupt at 21:00 then...
16:23:13 <CraigC> bipeds
16:26:29 <Betty> I call it a day, night all
16:26:40 <CraigC> cya Betty
16:26:50 <Rich> bye betty
16:27:12 <Michael> Bye betty
16:33:23 <CraigC> big anemone?
16:35:19 <CraigC> what is between Pump and Giantess
16:36:13 <Michael> I'd have to look again. Most of what I can think of are steaming holes (Teakettle, Topaz Spring, etc.).
16:53:13 <LindaG> Looks like bison to the right
16:55:10 <Steph> Well, I'm gonna run! Thanks for a fun and beautiful day! I truly love hanging out with you all!
16:56:08 <GO GIANT> of
16:56:26 <GO GIANT> have a good evening
16:56:29 <Michael> Bye Steph.
16:58:02 <LindaG> Bye
16:59:07 <LindaG> Kinda strange just seeing OF by itself
17:02:14 <LindaG> It's a long way to check on lc
17:03:43 <GO GIANT> peeps on geyser hill
17:04:01 <LindaG> Yeah in the snow
17:05:07 <LindaG> It all looks so different, but beautiful
17:06:36 <LindaG> Marmot ave
17:06:44 <LindaG> *cave
17:18:19 <ynpvisitor13> Well, not a good day for those that said we would not see much with the split views and all the time staring at OF'. GT is full of different geysers.
17:21:19 <Michael> Is Beehive going?
17:21:51 <Michael> suddenly seemed like a lot of steam blowing over.
17:22:44 <Michael> Just my imagination then. Sorry.
17:25:18 <GO GIANT> marmott cave
17:28:32 <LindaG> I think marmot is going to beat out LC for entries
17:28:56 <ynpvisitor48> Lion thinking about it..
17:29:06 <GO GIANT> maybe :)
17:29:12 <GO GIANT> or Solitary?
17:29:48 <LindaG> Tough competition for sure
17:30:34 <GO GIANT> lion and lc
17:30:53 <LindaG> Up
17:31:17 <GO GIANT> or just Lion?
17:31:20 <LindaG> Nice
17:31:49 <LindaG> Imthink just lio
17:32:01 <LindaG> Geez, I think just lion
17:32:48 <Michael> restart?
17:32:49 <GO GIANT> second burst
17:33:14 <LindaG> I missed
17:33:30 <LindaG> I'm on delay, yay
17:33:43 <Michael> What is the eyser code for that? R2Q?
17:34:16 <ynpvisitor48> double minor ;)
17:35:35 <Michael> Let's see what we can score on the 4 minute power-play.
17:38:12 <LindaG> Hi casey
17:38:41 <GO GIANT> you want Maple Leafs to win?
17:38:53 <GO GIANT> Art won't like that
17:39:36 <Casey> Hi
17:42:12 <LindaG> Bee is stealing good
17:42:22 <LindaG> Steaming
17:43:15 <LindaG> Very difficult to see
17:45:23 <LindaG> Lc ie
17:45:50 <Michael> I don't see it yet.
17:46:36 <LindaG> It just calmed down
17:48:07 <LindaG> Hard to see from up here
17:52:12 <LindaG> I entered but if it wasnt it will start in the next 1/2 hr.
17:54:08 <ynpvisitor53> Congrats Graham. Nice to have 2-0 lead
17:59:48 <LindaG> Marmot

18:53:00 <ynpvisitor71> I guess they have not got the suggestion for a different night view - the lights. they hurt
19:03:01 <ynpvisitor113> Kevin, you watching?
19:06:32 <ynpvisitor113> Guess not.
19:36:10 <Kevin L™🌵> 5.2 eq on big Island Hawaii
20:05:14 <ynpvisitor110> No of view?
20:07:17 <ynpvisitor68> good question. I'm not sure what the guidelines are. Probably still a work in progress.
20:10:24 <ynpvisitor85> Permission has been given to try this view at night.
21:05:38 <ynpvisitor68> Grand
