Comments:Details & height later

Approximately 2000-2100 typical minor behavior as seen all day. Decent minors but not much to make you think an eruption was coming. Started to pack up to head in as activity dramatically decreased around 2045-2100. Very little to no minors during this period. Approximately 2100 there was a concerted minor where south vent put out an unusual large amount of water for a long duration, but not particularly high. 2100-2105 minor activity resumed and SB erupted with almost no warning. Ben approximated height around 310-350’ from what I recall. Little to no wind during eruption. From Larissa and Clara’s observation from just south of Emerald, height seemed to be on the shorter side compared to other low/no wind eruptions.
