Note IDStart Time (US/Mountain)End Time (US/Mountain)EntrantNote
13673 13 Sep 2019 @ 0530 --- B**2 From Beehive, sounded like steam phase of eruption. Perhaps major after minor? Anxiously waiting for electronic. With last moonlight looks like eruption.
12788 24 Jul 2019 @ 1449 --- cwonder Sporadic heavy splashing with occasional 5-20' bursts
11612 07 Jun 2019 @ 0848 --- B**2 Very quiet. Probably an overnight major. Was quiet when I passed by about 07:00 too.
11438 31 May 2019 @ 0713 --- B**2 Castle quiet - probable overnight major.
11283 21 May 2019 @ 1130 --- AngelaT Observed erratic, ongoing eruptions up to 2 m high past 1 hour.
11373 21 May 2019 @ 1045 --- Ben VL Sloppy. Minored overnight.
11127 29 Apr 2019 @ 1023 --- Polly Appears to have had a major this morning.
11093 27 Apr 2019 @ 0751 --- Micah Kipple Splashy play. May have minored overnight
11045 22 Apr 2019 @ 1057 --- mhvogel A volunteer observed castle having a major. He saw it transition from water to heavy steam phase.
10953 03 Mar 2019 @ 0845 03 Mar 2019 @ 1045 AngelaT A lot of splashing activity observed. Did it have a minor this morning?

8413 02 Jun 2018 @ 1237 --- DaveM Duration was 4 minutes. Geysertimes chose a less complete entry submitted 7 minutes after the eruption over a webcam entry. I find the bias of the software disturbing. A more complete entry should be listed as primary whether is is submitted immediately or much later or if it is seen in person or on the webcam.

3904 29 Dec 2016 @ 1051 --- Kevin L Very foggy but it looked like Castle may have been ie. Fog downbasin may have been the result of a Castle eruption since it appeared that there was a steam phase plume at 1118 and the fog cleared shortly after that.
