“Yellowstone’s Steamboat Geyser, the largest in the world, has now erupted eight times in less than three months, in a geological puzzle that has fascinated scientists working at the site. The last eruption on Monday lasted an amazing 30 minutes with strong water gushing, the occasional baseball-sized rock ejected up to 200 feet into the air and the loud rumbling sound similar to a volcanic eruption.”
“The world’s largest active geyser has erupted three times in the past six weeks at Yellowstone National Park, including once this week, in a pattern that is unusual but not at all indicative of a more destructive volcanic eruption brewing beneath Wyoming, geologists said on Saturday.”
Nothing to see here … move along…
We’ve been a little lazy about posting newer activity at Yellowstone.
The Express – Fears of Yellowstone volcano erupting are on the rise after authorities have culled more than 1,000 bison living in the volatile park. The bison slaughter news comes after services have been told to prepare for life and death situations.

“New images prove that the Yellowstone hotspot is powered by superheated magma rising up from Earth’s core. The last Yellowstone supereruption occurred roughly 640,000 years ago, creating the massive, 40-mile wide Yellowstone caldera and producing an umbrella-shaped ash cloud that blanketed areas as far away as modern-day New York with several millimeters of ash. The prospect of another cataclysmic supereruption has sent scientists on a decades-long search for the source of Yellowstone’s devastating power.” (more)

The last massive earthquake in Yellowstone National Park claimed the lives of 28 people and created a whole new lake. An eruption of a supervolcano like the one at Yellowstone could render significant part of the US uninhabitable for years and threaten life on the whole planet.
Over 200 tremors have struck the Yellowstone supervolcano

The Daily Mail [UK] – Yellowstone supervolcano is showing signs of STRAIN: Experts measure subtle changes caused by magma deep beneath the surface
- Scientists based in Colorado can measure the strain put on volcanoes in the US
- They detected molten rock beneath the surface of Yellowstone National Park
- Their discovery is not dangerous, and technologies allow them to track it closely
- The researchers analyze the effects of slight environmental shifts on volcanoes
