World's tallest geyser active again

Park geologists compared the report with seismic activity and the discharge of water and concluded the eruption probably started at 6:30 a.m.
The geyser also erupted on March 15 and April 19.
All three eruptions were smaller than the last major eruption that occurred on Sept. 3, 2014.
