11683 09 Jun 2019 @ 1024 --- LynnS Start of overflow
11653 08 Jun 2019 @ 0855 --- LynnS In early overflow; overflow coming out the east face but not trickling off first platform yet.
11639 07 Jun 2019 @ 2112 --- User34 Barely below overflow
11693 03 Jun 2019 @ 1726 --- Barbara Lasseter 74 minute overflow
11468 31 May 2019 @ 1956 31 May 2019 @ 2020 imapayne We arrived at great fountain around 1945 to a completely empty steaming crater. Standing on the benches, no water could be seen. At 1956, still no water. At 1957 the pool began to rise and by 2000 it was full and had a tiny trickle out the back, the pool held until 2011, but never really overflowed when it began to drop again. As it was late and the water was almost gone again, we decided to leave.
10278 18 Sep 2018 @ 1006 --- udo 724 victor announced prediction: 1240

9776 19 Aug 2018 @ 0650 19 Aug 2018 @ 0930 Glocho Maureen arrived this morning c. 06:50 and observed the end of Great Fountain. Gloria downloaded logger data at 9am with electronic eruption start time of 07:12. Since this directly contradicts Maureen's observation, I have removed this data point. The other data downloaded at the same time with the same device (08/18/18 1000E, 2021E) also did not match yesterday's observed eruptions, though I did download electronic times for yesterday and 8/17 PM through another device that appear to match.

7776 26 Oct 2017 @ 0925 --- udo Overflowing with boils appear to be continuing. Very doubtful that any eruptions have happened since the end of wild phase. It's still trying to recover.

7769 25 Oct 2017 @ 1116 25 Oct 2017 @ 1722 billwarnock As Udo has noted, overflows today were accompanied by very strong boils, mainly around the rim. Overflow/heavy boils ranged from 22 to 29 minutes in duration, but the last two seen beginning at 1516 and 1645 lasted 32 and 37 minutes respectively. Durations of drops below overflow ranged between 12 and 15 minutes throughout this period. The last two drops the water wasn't visible. I still believe it had a large eruption overnight.

7768 25 Oct 2017 @ 1035 --- udo Nice boiling action. Upper terrace is overflowing into lower terrace and runoff channel. Runoff channels are flowing thru 2nd culvert and toward White Dome. Looks pre-eruptive. We'll see.
7750 24 Oct 2017 @ 1800 24 Oct 2017 @ 1940 DanS Still quietly in overflow. No edge boils yet. Departed at last light 1940, under quarter moon and big dipper. Coyote ambled by and crossed road at 1824.
7748 24 Oct 2017 @ 1613 24 Oct 2017 @ 1750 billwarnock Was in light overflow when I arrived. Also saw Fountain plume ie at 1613. Went to Flats to confirm & met Maureen. When we returned to GF after 1630 still in light overflow which increased until 1649 when pool dropped. Rises to overflow then slight drop continued until I left at 1750. Dan S still there.
7747 24 Oct 2017 @ 1700 --- Maureen Going in and out of overflow. Quick up and downs. No boils seen yet. Beautiful day in the LGB. So nice.
