One of Yellowstone National Park‘s largest geysers erupted this August after more than six years of silence.
“On Tuesday, August 25, 2020, Giantess Geyser roared back to life after a period of more than 6-1/2 years without erupting,” the iconic national park announced on social media Saturday, along with a video of the remarkable event.
Giantess Geyser is a fountain-type geyser that usually sends several bursts of water and steam 100 to 200 feet into the air, according to Yellowstone National Park. It is known for “infrequent but violent eruptions.” However, historically, its eruptions have not been so infrequent, occurring two to six times a year.
