2018 is now officially a record year for Yellowstone National Park’s Steamboat Geyser. It has just erupted for the 30th time this year on December 8, 2018, beating the record for most eruptions in one year from 1964.

According to Geyser Times, eruptions have occurred just about every 7 or 8 days after beginning on March 15, 2018. Yesterday’s eruption was a bit delayed… after 9 days of being dormant.

As you might expect, Steamboat’s record eruption has gotten the attention of folks that keep a close eye on developments near the Yellowstone supervolcano.

There’s a good chance that Steamboat won’t stop at 30 eruptions. Let’s wait 7, 8 or 9 more days to see!
