35097 10 Jun 2024 @ 1308 --- SantaFe108 Not active, sitting at a medium water level and blooping. The Cousins behind are very full.
31725 29 Nov 2023 @ 1618 --- JR Eruption cycle seemed less defined. Watched for a bit and there was sputtering in between a "normal" eruption.
25962 02 Jun 2023 @ 1010 02 Jun 2023 @ 1020 Tara Cycling about every 2 minutes, duration about 15 seconds, height 3'. Basin stained light orange, no runoff.
23503 31 Aug 2022 @ 1137 --- cb activity has not chsnged
17275 30 May 2021 @ 1618 --- cb still very active
16892 20 Apr 2021 @ 1544 20 Apr 2021 @ 1603 MAB Orby 1544-1600 Water level is low - the first sign of an eruption is the rumbling noise coming from the crater! Some pauses restart and after 30 sec duration the crater is flooded, otherwise it's low in volume and height. There were some quick turnarounds that others might have combined into the 1st eruption. It takes concentration! I will enter what I have, some may be combined into 1 entry if GT thinks they are too close together. Interesting.
16399 10 Oct 2020 @ 1032 --- cb Orby is still going gang busters. erupting every minute or so. The Cousin or Wineticicly is steaming and gurgling deep inside the crater but no water visible
14896 06 Jul 2020 @ 0955 06 Jul 2020 @ 1130 cb Orby starts from a empty crater. It spashes up to 2' with a thick, wide, puffball appearance and fills as the eruption progresses. All the eruptions I saw, the pool stayed within its crater and did not overflow. It erupts for a few minutes and then abruptly stops and the pool drains completely. The water is a muddy light brown color. (think chocolate milk) * * *The Cousins feature that is to the west of Orby> The main, center vent that in June had a pool that was high and perpetually erupting is now erupting deep down in the vent. The only water I could see today was the tips of the splashes that barely reached the height of the platform. The platform is dry. This was observed from the boardwalk above Orby and just beyond Yellow Funnel Spring
14691 20 Jun 2020 @ 1114 20 Jun 2020 @ 1244 cb tried to start at the 1116 mark but pool dropped. it continued to bubble but no actual eruption. Pool stayed at low level (4" from overflow) while it just bubbled barely breaking the surface. 1125 pool started to fill again. 1127 dropped with very weak bubbles. 1128 no bubbles in the pool, pool quiet. 1134 pool filling. 1136 dropped. 1141 filling. 1144 dropped. from 1144 - 1245 the pool would do a filling/drop cycle with a bubbling that occationally would bloop but not erupt.
14003 03 Nov 2019 @ 1114 --- MAB clear calm - overflow connects w feature to west or it connects to Orby- not sure which. All cousins and other nearby holes are quiet
13929 12 Oct 2019 @ 1245 --- cb Orby is calm, not even putting out pulsing waves. The main vent of The Cousins is erupting to 8" but the side vent (or other cousin) is quiet. The spouter between the Cousins and Orby was not erupting.
13573 05 Sep 2019 @ 0939 --- cb everthing on the platform is quiet except for the feature between Orby and the Cousins. It is erupting 6 - 8" high perpetually.
13489 01 Sep 2019 @ 0857 --- cb all vents within this platform are quiet. no activity.
13423 27 Aug 2019 @ 1016 --- MAB flat water in the grayish crater
13315 18 Aug 2019 @ 1514 --- cb nothing in this area is active today. no bubbles, no convection, nada
13251 14 Aug 2019 @ 1602 --- cb some pulsing action that is sending good sized convection waves out. water is clearThe Cousins activity has diminished exponentially. Only brief blips from both pools that are just barely breaking the surface
13161 11 Aug 2019 @ 0842 --- RMichaels Orby is full and calm. Features in large pool immediately Northwest of Orby are erupting clear water up to six inches.
13127 09 Aug 2019 @ 0857 --- cb Orby calm and still. Cousins active.
12998 03 Aug 2019 @ 0849 --- cb calm and flat. The Cousins are perpetual spouters and the feature between Orby and The Cousins is erupting from 2 vents continuously.
12972 02 Aug 2019 @ 0949 --- MAB flat w tiny bubbles. the cousin behind was Ie all day with clear water
12924 01 Aug 2019 @ 1113 --- cb i havent been sure where to post this info.Orby is not erupting but the Cousins, or Xiuhtecuhtli, (whee-uh-tek-oo-t'lee) has been in constant play since the 30th. Both vents.
12107 04 Jul 2019 @ 1100 --- ldgordon Small splashing about a couple inches high for prolonged time
11614 07 Jun 2019 @ 0904 --- CrisG clear and calm pool.
11121 01 May 2019 @ 1126 --- cb no activity seen from Orby or its cousin in the few days/times we've been in the park.
11059 23 Apr 2019 @ 1104 --- MAB Orby is a flat pool with a little convection. Two small spots east of Orby spitting above ground level. - - Cousin next door active with cloudy water -much cleaner. Smaller little cousin within the pool also spouting.
11025 20 Apr 2019 @ 1335 20 Apr 2019 @ 1435 MAB Dark muddy eruptions. Hard to time them with 'Disturby' next door stealing the show. It appears that Orby would alternate short (30 sec) then long (60 sec) eruptions. The eruptions from the vent to the NW appear to grow in size when Orby is erupting. At times it has an overflowing pool, other times it shows the edges of the crater. In size it looks like a Whirligig eruption, in dark brown. Tom C thought the NW vent had enlarged since yesterday.
19297 19 Apr 2019 @ 0925 --- research-mab 19 Apr 2019 @ 0925 RMICHAELS ORBY See Note under Steamboat Boardwalk to Steamboat is open. Steamboat very quiet. Only occasional splashing from either vent. South Vent runoff channel completely dry. Cistern in light overflow with one boil in center. Suspect there may be ongoing disturbance affecting at least the back basin because two features near Orby were having muddy eruptions. Porkchop also had no water in it. I didn't do a full tour of the back basin but it appeared from a casual glance that many typically quiet features were erupting or had more water than usual. I spaced out looking at Emerald to see if it was cloudy/boiling. I believe others made more detailed observations. https://geysertimes.org/note.php?id=10995
8850 22 Jun 2018 @ 1039 --- MAB More Frequent. Fill & Preplay down in the vent start just after the identical size eruptions near the end, with little pause. Didn't see activity in that other fissure in the crater. 'The Cousins' nearby were IE
3986 21 Apr 2017 @ 1500 21 Apr 2017 @ 1547 MAB Hard to say what's going on here- eruptions were in multiples of 30 seconds. With more observations I/we may decide that the pauses and quick restarts are all part of the same eruption, which would then total about 90 second total duration.
3105 20 Jun 2016 @ 1800 20 Jun 2016 @ 1845 MAB From the overlook above Orby, growls and grumbles coming from Son of Green Dragon (possibly), another UNNG (possibly) but also from Orby after it drains and before it restarts. Great sounds
2829 09 May 2016 @ 1200 09 May 2016 @ 1831 MAB Orby seen erupting _and_ draining again, as seen from Vixen and a walkabout to Yellow Funnel. I have some times but they are sporadic due to attention. I will work on watching it more closely next visit.
2811 02 May 2016 @ 1700 --- MAB still full with 2" splashing
2735 15 Apr 2016 @ 1528 15 Apr 2016 @ 1804 MAB Orby is full. No eruptions noted from 1530 to when I left about 1800
