A Few Minutes Ago at Yellowstone

After several minutes of teasing its audience with a series of spurts and gurgles, Old Faithful finally went off with a photogenic display while I was watching on the live webcam.

The live action was even better looking than this; the static webcam's shutter speed isn't as good as the video webcam's frame rate, and the former's captures aren't uploaded quickly enough even during the prediction's time window.

I wish park personnel would update the eruption forecasts more frequently. The geyser erupts several times a day but the prediction on the livecam web page only seems to be updated a couple of times each day.
