(Reuters) - The world's largest geyser has exploded to life at Yellowstone National Park for the first time in eight years, sending a high-pressure burst of steamy water 300 feet into the air, a park official said on Thursday.


The stream of 160 degree water released on Wednesday night by the so-called Steamboat Geyser lasted for roughly 10 minutes, delighting a small number of "geyser gazers" who have waited years for such a show, Yellowstone spokesman Dan Hottle said.

"There are a lot of people who wait hour after hour, day after day, for things to erupt," he said. Yellowstone visitors could potentially wait a lifetime for Steamboat Geyser, which has gone as long as 50 years between major eruptions. Steamboat Geyser last sent a superheated torrent of water hundreds of feet into the air in May 2005.

Just thought I'd share this with those that find this interesting.
I know many try to keep track on the happenings at Yellowstone.

I have never been there but would love to see this.
That is of course, if I didn't have to wait hours, days, much less years.


Beautiful country.

How long before all the doom-and-gloomers arrive and start wailing that Yellowstone's gonna blow?

Hmm, let's see....
The Dec. 21, 2012 has come and gone- *whew*
So when is the next doomsday date?

Not sure, guess I better stock up on hot pockets and beer.

Unless some way is found to siphon off all that energy, Yellowstone IS going to blow, it's just a matter of when, and how many of the planet's population are going to be affected. Unless you have the technical skills that can be directed towards solving this future problem, it's pretty pointless dwelling on the subject. Unless you're a disaster porn fan, that is.

This isn't meant to be a doom thread.

More of a 'Mother Nature showing off' thread.
Being as it is a tourist spot, I figured some would be happy to know she woke up to say Hello after being asleep for 8 years.

Who was being gloomy? I was trying to offer a positive outlook by saying don't dwell on the darker implications of this event unless you have a practical interest in doing so. Or they can just do what you suggest, which is, enjoy the display for what is. It's all good. Unless you're thinking about the bad.
