Latest Notes

Note IDStart Time (US/Mountain)End Time (US/Mountain)EntrantNote
21990 16 Jun 2022 @ 0630 --- RMichaels Castle is lightly billowing steam. It probably had a major sometime overnight.
21912 11 Jun 2022 @ 0800 --- Colin_W splashing on cone.
21150 02 May 2022 @ 0915 --- aferrara Heavy, tall splashing.
21134 30 Apr 2022 @ 1300 30 Apr 2022 @ 1630 User34 Splashing heavily
21077 25 Apr 2022 @ 0605 --- RMichaels Quiet. Castle appears to have had a major overnight.
20943 05 Apr 2022 @ 1326 --- Kevin L Castle was not erupting when I switched to Lion ie at 1238. I did a quick check before I switched to OF and Castle looked ie.
20764 29 Jan 2022 @ 0830 --- aferrara Castle is quietly steaming with rare, short splashes. No eruptions on the logger since 1447 yesterday.
20762 28 Jan 2022 @ 0000 --- aferrara Logger shows no eruption overnight.
20646 07 Jan 2022 @ 0900 --- aferrara Billowing steam with frequent splashing (5-15' or so over the top of the cone). Logger is having trouble reading majors vs minors right now, but I believe Art-P's major observation via the webcam. Castle looks remarkably like it did post-major in late June 2021, when its intervals became long and irregular.
20282 03 Nov 2021 @ 0822 --- DaveM Looking at the webcam capture, this was a minor.
20182 29 Oct 2021 @ 0835 --- aferrara Castle erupted 2258E last night. Graph looks like a long minor but in the basin it looks like it majored overnight (billowing steam, no splashing or spritzing). Probably a major, but unclear.
19552 14 Sep 2021 @ 0025 --- Suzanne heard in steam phase from the boardwalk near Tardy
19549 13 Sep 2021 @ 1900 13 Sep 2021 @ 2115 William good splashing but no eruption during this time.
19503 12 Sep 2021 @ 0635 --- William in steam. had a major overnight.
19313 05 Sep 2021 @ 0805 --- Kitt B Appears to haveminored. Heavy splashing seen.
18428 15 Jul 2021 @ 0550 --- SteveO Had a major overnight, billowing steam and boardwalk is wet.
18412 14 Jul 2021 @ 0540 --- RMichaels Billowing steam as if it had a major eruption very early this morning.
18252 03 Jul 2021 @ 0543 --- JimS Quiet. Boardwalk soaked. Had a major eruption overnight.
18235 02 Jul 2021 @ 0530 --- JimS Quiet. Had a major eruption overnight.
18195 30 Jun 2021 @ 0532 --- JimS Quiet. Boardwalk soaked. Had major eruption overnight.
17967 21 Jun 2021 @ 1648 --- Graham VEC is now officially not predicting Castle. Recent intervals suggest 19 to 22h intervals without minors. Longer intervals started ~16th.
17842 16 Jun 2021 @ 0542 --- JimS May have also had a minor a few hours earlier since 17 hour interval is so large to this eruption.
17760 14 Jun 2021 @ 0541 --- JimS Sloshing. Overnight eruption was another minor.
17648 11 Jun 2021 @ 0557 --- JimS Quiet. Had a major eruption overnight.
17465 04 Jun 2021 @ 1130 --- steve Just an odd note, I looked at the temperature monitor for Castle and there was no other eruption on the temp monitor recorded between the 0759 eruption on the 3rd and the 1011 eruption today on the 4th. I’m not sure what to make of it.
17420 04 Jun 2021 @ 0612 --- JimS Still displaying post minor behavior.
17125 18 May 2021 @ 0630 --- JimS Quiet. Had a major eruption overnight. The 0230 eruption must have been a major.
17109 17 May 2021 @ 0716 --- JimS Quiet. Had a major eruption overnight.
16990 06 May 2021 @ 0757 --- JimS Castle is sloshing. Overnight eruption was apparently a minor.
16815 19 Jan 2021 @ 1431 --- mhvogel The graph barely picked up the eruption, if the small spike on the graph was an eruption. I think the graph is somehow wrong because I don't recall Castle having 12.5 hour intervals. I'll erase the entry when more data is available.
16810 16 Jan 2021 @ 1652 --- Graham Castle is a Major.
16441 19 Oct 2020 @ 1057 --- am Lightly steaming. Last eruption was a major
16148 17 Sep 2020 @ 0645 --- William On a bike-by observation it looks to me like Castle had a major eruption overnight
15726 25 Aug 2020 @ 0813 --- am Castle spitting up water and showing signs it’s previous eruption was a minor.
14159 26 Mar 2020 @ 0704 --- CraigC Looks post-Major at 07:04
14110 02 Feb 2020 @ 1434 --- mhvogel The Bluetooth readout confirms it was a major.
13983 28 Oct 2019 @ 1537 --- mhvogel After reviewing the castle logger graph several times, castle had a minor. The duration of the eruption was 12 minutes. I lined up the start of the spike on the graph to the end of it. The spike on the graph is small compared to the rest of the previous eruptions.
13953 17 Oct 2019 @ 0930 17 Oct 2019 @ 0949 AngelaT Castle is erupting short bursts up to 1 meter, sporadically, indicative of a previous minor eruption.
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?
10759 02 Dec 2018 @ 0341 --- JSJ GOSA playback shows a Castle eruption at 0341 with a more slender steam column than the 2204 eruption. Steam column present to about 0430 at least, when visibility was lost.
10696 01 Nov 2018 @ 1115 --- mhvogel According to the electronic download castle had a minor @ 0326. I didn't see any other eruptions from castle on the download after that time.
10322 21 Sep 2018 @ 1317 --- Minafuku Castle doing lots of high splashes for being only halfway through its cycle. Apparently has been for awhile already.
10264 16 Sep 2018 @ 1804 --- STS New NPS prediction of 0515 on September 17
9866 25 Aug 2018 @ 0758 --- Minafuku Quiet. Major overnight.
9268 22 Jul 2018 @ 0553 --- JimS Sloshing. Overnight eruption was a minor.
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.
8235 19 May 2018 @ 0934 --- JimS Sloshing vigorously. Had a minor overnight.
8044 29 Apr 2018 @ 2134 --- Micah Kipple beginning to transition into steam
7963 31 Mar 2018 @ 2218 --- Pat Snyder Might have minored. IE at 2211, off by 2217. I didn't see the start, though.
7878 27 Jan 2018 @ 1400 --- Graham Not in steam phase. must have had a minor. No eruption seen during my wait for Grand.
7701 10 Oct 2017 @ 1516 --- JSJ Castle off-camera, but patches of billowing steam consistent with an eruption first visible on web camera at 1516.
7532 29 Sep 2017 @ 0741 --- JimS Sloshing. Probably Had a minor eruption overnight.
