  • Fan and Mortar Geyser is still active about every 6(ish) days – 5 to 9 days is the recent range.
  • A small unnamed geyser next to Green Spring at Black Sand Basin (Also Known as BSB-2) is active this spring, but isn’t being reported very often right now.
  • Mugwump Geyser is active – located in Three Sister’s Spring.

If you do witness a rare eruption, I’d also like to hear from you.
