09:08:46 <Betty> guess that was Lion
09:09:03 <GO PLUME> sleds coming in at West, they ook cold
09:09:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> In this weather Anenome would make a big steam plume.
09:09:16 <Betty> hi Kevin
09:09:28 <Betty> hi Graham
09:09:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Betty
09:13:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Oh oh. 3.4 eq at Area 51.
09:13:52 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, :-/
09:14:33 <GO PLUME> of
09:14:39 <GO PLUME> afternoon betty
09:15:00 <GO PLUME> would be nice to see Plume on the cam ...
09:15:15 <KorbenC> Hopefully the weather clears out later today.
09:57:34 <linda> think someone is beaming down on geyser hill
09:57:44 <linda> gone
09:58:57 <linda> lake is nice
10:00:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Steamer leaving Strasburg
10:01:03 <linda> yay a train to watch
10:02:46 <linda> nice whistle
10:03:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Love that whistle!
10:03:31 <linda> are they going to paradise?
10:04:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. Should be a good steam show there in about 15-20m
10:04:21 <linda> :thumbsup:
10:05:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I like it when the electrics meet the steamer at Paradise.
10:05:32 <linda> :)
10:06:14 <linda> that one day was cool when 3 electrics plus steamer were there
10:06:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave enjoyed his train ride. I don't think he expected a ride and was totally surprised it was in the cab.
10:07:35 <linda> that will be a great menory
10:07:38 <Betty> sounds you had a great time :-)
10:11:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was fun. He got a first class tour on a lot of things. He got to see Dan's car up close along with the remnants of the one he patterned it after.
10:12:31 <Betty> cool
10:14:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think they were enjoying the warm weather more than anything.
10:14:44 <Betty> that sure was a plus
10:15:11 <Betty> are they still in Vegas?
10:15:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No, they went to Laughlin yesterday and to Lake Havasu today.
10:16:03 <linda> :I hear a train a comin
10:16:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I hear a whistle.
10:16:24 <Betty> ah, a fun place too. London Bridge waits :-)
10:16:32 <linda> yup
10:18:14 <linda> :)
10:19:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That was really cool!
10:20:16 <linda> :D It was!
10:20:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I liked the steam coming off the pantograph.
10:40:40 <Betty> OF
12:42:25 <5> peculiar change of behavior at Whirligig. Now you get the regular alteration of minors and non-minors, but it appears the intervals are about equally long whatever the eruption's duration
12:42:43 <5> so no more series-like behavior
12:43:17 <5> Steamboat has water
12:45:50 <5> having said that about Whirligig - there is a tendency of a shorter interval post-minor, but the difference is only about 20-30 minutes at most, which I'd consider to be within natural variation. Strong non-minors still result in a longer resulting interval, which is as expected I guess
12:46:31 <5> perhaps kinda like Pink Cone about half-way into the interval in that regard, if I may compare the two
12:49:53 <5> so over the past six weeks we've seen all kinds of faces of Whirligig - solely non-minors transitioning to series dominated by non-minors to solely non-minors to regular alteration of minor/non-minor at expected intervals (I minor < I non-minor) to slight series-like behavior to alternating minors/non-minors at roughly the same interval
12:58:53 <GO PLUME> yeah for SB water
12:59:40 <GO PLUME> water back 4 days quicker than last time which is god
13:00:41 <5> curve is also steeper that with the previous interval. That looks like a good sign to me
13:00:47 <5> than*
13:01:10 <Betty> evening JarnoO
13:01:23 <JarnoO> afternoon all, evening Betty
13:02:03 <GO PLUME> almost 5 days earlier
13:02:33 <GO PLUME> so eruption in the next 5 days?
13:02:40 <JarnoO> fingers crossed
13:03:38 <KorbenC> Afternoon Jarno, and Betty.
13:03:48 <KorbenC> I knew I saw that uplift yesterday being water back :)
13:05:19 <KorbenC> So, weather looks OK right now, anybody heard updates about the cam?
13:05:25 <JarnoO> by the way, Etna had its 8th paroxysm this morning UTC. Short one this time
13:05:50 <Betty> hi Korben
13:06:01 <JarnoO> 7th*
13:06:26 <KorbenC> Short as in duration or height JO.
13:07:19 <JarnoO> duration, not sure about height. That channel we've been posting here for each paroxysm only streamed just over half an hour before it apparantly quit
13:07:33 <JarnoO>
13:08:08 <JarnoO> Notice that 10^2 mV spike at the end of the trace. Much narrower than the previous ones
13:09:04 <JarnoO> I was able to partially view that secondary spike via Etna webcams, but didn't see much other than the occasional puff of ash from either Bocca Nuova or Voragine
13:15:46 <Betty> Lion ie
13:43:06 <Ben VL> Yay SB temps are back!
13:43:19 <KorbenC> yup
13:43:45 <Ben VL> I saw that video about plume
13:44:22 <Ben VL> I never saw anything like that last year, even during GTS
13:44:48 <Betty> hi Ben, do you have a link?
13:45:03 <KorbenC> Betty, you on FB?
13:45:08 <Betty> no
13:45:28 <KorbenC> Its on the FB, it had splashing a foot above the rim.
13:45:28 <Betty> for that I need a link
13:45:29 <Ben VL> It's on FB. I'm not on FB but my mom is and she showed me
13:46:21 <Ben VL> Voluminous, too
13:46:44 <Ben VL> Not just spray reaching the surface, there was a lot of water
13:47:27 <Ben VL> At least compared to recent times
13:48:05 <JarnoO> fingers crossed the Plume bench will get some intended usage in the upcoming season
13:48:10 <JarnoO> OF
13:48:24 <Ben VL> Oh I hope so
13:48:36 <Betty> that would be great
13:48:52 <JarnoO> would also be the first time, if it goes, I'll see it live :)
13:48:53 <KorbenC> I would book a hotel in West in May if it restarted :)
13:48:55 <Ben VL> Last time I saw plume I was little enough where it scared me
13:49:05 <JarnoO> well, live as in from webcam
13:49:13 <KorbenC> JarnoO, NOPE, you need a cam to see it live, and who knows when that will happen :P
13:49:56 <Ben VL> It'll happen eventually, korben. Don't worry
13:50:20 <KorbenC> I know :D
13:50:53 <JarnoO> anyone interested in provoking the sun to launch a solar storm of 1859 magnitude?
13:51:06 <Ben VL> Not really
13:51:47 <JarnoO> for context - that year's solar storm was so strong some telegraphs could be sent despite their power supply being disconnected
13:52:00 <JarnoO> and alledgedly a newspaper could read without any light at night
13:52:19 <JarnoO> could be read*
13:52:35 <Ben VL> Electronics were a little less sensitive back then
13:55:04 <KorbenC> Instead of a solar storm, how about Betelgeuse supernova?
14:10:59 <JarnoO> that wouldn't create sustained energy, so not useful for the cam
14:37:03 <Betty> Lion
15:49:25 <Betty> Lion
16:04:55 <JarnoO> should Plume reactivate, it would, with a bit of luck, appear below the Aurum branch on the static
16:06:38 <BenVL> Cool
16:08:28 <BenVL> Keep an eye out for steam puffs I guess
16:18:42 <Betty> time to head out, night all
16:19:00 <JarnoO> cya Betty
16:19:10 <BenVL> Cya
18:07:15 <kcmule> OF ie
