Geologists at Yellowstone National Park reported the third outbreak of the world's largest active geyser over the past six weeks.
A park visitor reported a rare eruption of the Steamboat Geyser on Friday, the National Park Service reported  Park geologists compared the report to seismic activity and the runoff of water and likely closed the outbreak at 6:30 in the morning
The geyser also broke out on March 15th and April 19th.
All three eruptions were smaller than the last eruption that occurred on September 3, 2014.
Steamboat Geyser recently erupted three times in 2003, Reuters reported, citing information from the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory of the US Geological Survey
This year's pattern is unusual, but not necessarily "A destructive volcanic eruption is near," said one geologist to Reuters.
"There is nothing to suggest that any kind of volcanic eruption is imminent," Michael Poland, the scientist responsible for the Yellowstone Observatory, told Reuters in an e-mail.
