It's hard for me to see it as a coincidence. Wouldn't it make more sense that with advances in technology more data is available and stored? Less just seems like suppression of data, and makes it much easier for someone to use an old image or alter the image to misguide the public to either cause or avert unrest. Or, if an eruption was to be caused by an object entering the atmosphere and either impacting or blowing up nearby, it could be attributed to seismic activity (with falsified images)...OSIT.
Thank you for posting this!

Coincidence or something happens?

I just looked at the link and it appears to be updated, so I will include it here for reference in case it gets updated again without changing link name. I copied all the images, but only one is showing, so I have now left just the link for all the other images:

The seismographs monitoring earthquakes around the Yellowstone super-volcano have been deliberately taken OFFLINE from public view. This is a confirmed deliberate act and will stay this way so the public is not able to see seismic activity there. (This story has been UPDATED as of 10:14 AM EDT on April 6, 2016)

Being able to see what is taking place in and around Yellowstone is of great interest to many people because if there is a sudden flurry of earthquake activity, it COULD -- but not necessarily -- signal a pending eruption.

Since Yellowstone is the only "super volcano" on the North American continent, and is VERY geologically active, if an eruption were to actually take place, the western two-thirds of the United States would POTENTIALLY be hit with volcanic ash and a severe disruption of life.

So why were the public taken OFFLINE for the public? No one is providing any answers. Even more peculiar, the privately-funded seismographs from the University of Utah . . . are also OFFLINE to the public. WE NOW HAVE AN ANSWER:

The images of seismograms that appeared on SuperStation95 have always come from from the University of Utah, a.k.a. the UUSS. Sometime on the evening of April 4th, 2016, they suddenly got rid of those images. No one is able to archive them anymore or present them to you in the efficient fashion you've come to know and love.

From what we can tell so far about their changes, seismographic images have now become just "seismographic image." Every seismogram now shows only and exactly the past 24 hours of its life, as if they don't want anyone having the ability to look at its history even two days later.

The filenames don't even have anything in them anymore but the station's ID. The only way for anyone to compensate for this is to manually download each station's image once a day and then stick it in the archives. That means they'd never be live again. You'd have to go use their site to get live images. They couldn't have invented a better way to break third-party sites if they tried.

After poking around to various folks involved in the University of Utah Seismic Center, one person at that facility "quietly" e-mailed us a single graphic image which gave us pause:

In the image below, the Green Colored line represents the border of Yellowstone National Park. The (barely visible) gold line represents the mouth of the super-volcano, known as the Caldera. The red dots in the image below show all the earthquakes that have recently taken place at the Yellowstone super-volcano. This is why the public seismographs are suddenly OFFLINE to the general public:

We are not seismologists, but it looks (to us) as though something is happening at Yellowstone. We're seeking out professionals to interpret what we're seeing and will update this story when that info becomes available.

In the meantime, as untrained laymen, the red dots in the image above tell us something "not good" seems to be taking place at Yellowstone.


THE BASIC FACTS OF YELLOWSTONE

Established on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America's first national park. The park was dedicated by President Ulysses S. Grant.

https://cdn.superstation95.com/images/yell_location-map.gif?1459911295
Yellowstone National Park was established 20 years before Montana, Idaho and Wyoming were granted statehood.

Yellowstone National Park is 63 miles long and 54 miles wide.
https://cdn.superstation95.com/images/YellowstoneAreaMap.gif?1459911141
Yellowstone National Park is larger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware combined.


The Super-Volcano

Far beneath the ground in Yellowstone National Park, is something called a "Hot Spot." It is a place where the molten core of the earth is closer to the surface than at other places.
https://cdn.superstation95.com/images/yellowstonecalderaUnderground.gif?1459910281
As the vast North American Continental Plate shifts over the years, different parts of the surface end-up being above the "hot spot."

The image below shows the location of the "hot spot" over millions-of-years:
https://cdn.superstation95.com/images/YellowstoneHotSpots-MillionsOfYears.jpg?1459910058
Location of Hot Spot expressed in MILLIONS-OF-YEARS



Geologists were able to pinpoint these locations by analyzing soil, where they found volcanic-related materials and melted rock buried under various layers of dirt.


ERUPTIONS

From time to time, the "hot-spot" bursts through the surface with an eruption. These are extremely RARE occurrences, which take place - on average - every 600,000 years or so. As of today, Geologists claim it has been about 640,000 years since the last big eruption, so by some standards, we may be a bit overdue.

Volcanoes erupting is nothing new, but Yellowstone is not a typical volcano; it is a super-volcano. There are only thirty (30) super-volcanoes on earth and Yellowstone is the ONLY one on land. All the rest are beneath the oceans of the world.

The image below explains the utterly terrifying difference between a "typical" volcano and Yellowstone.

At the top left of the USA map, the gold-colored area over Oregon, Washington and Idaho shows the famous "Mount St. Helens eruption" of 1980 and how far ash was ejected from that (typical) volcano.

Lower and to the right, shows the horrifying power of Yellowstone eruptions dating back as far as two+ million years (or so) ago. The ash covered two-thirds of the USA!
Yellowstone.eruptions.jpg

The ash is only a small part of the story. When Yellowstone erupts, there will be an enormous "kill zone." Inside this "kill zone" nothing . . . . absolutely NOTHING . . . . will survive. The ash in this area is known as a pyroclastic flow. It will be so hot that anything it touches will be incinerated on contact. Humans, animals, trees, grass, cars, trucks, buildings. All destroyed immediately.

The next, even larger area, is called the "hot ash" zone. Most things in this area will be ignited by the hot ash and will burn. People, animals, cars, buildings. There will be so much fire and so much horror, that very little will survive.
https://cdn.superstation95.com/images/killzone-hotash.jpg?1459912953
Beyond the Kill Zone and the Hot Ash Zone is the "raining ash zone." In this area, volcanic ash with rain down for weeks! But what is commonly called "ash" is not really "ash" at all; it is pulverized ROCK. If a human inhales it, the rock turns into a mud-like substance in the lungs, suffocating the person to death.

The ash also clogs vehicle air filters, stalling vehicles because they cannot get air into the fuel injection systems. When stranded motorists exit their vehicles to see what's wrong, they breath the ash, and that's usually the end of them, too.

Anyone in the raining ash zone without a NIOSH filter mask rated at N-95 or N-100 will be dead in minutes; for lack of an $8 mask!

The image below shows how deep the ash is expected to be in various locations. Bear in mind that one inch equals 25.4 millimeters, click image to enlarge.

"Scare" in June, 2015

Yellowstone National Park was hastily evacuated in June, 2015 due to concerns that the super volcano could erupt sooner than expected. Researchers on-site claimed that the 640,000 year-old Yellowstone Caldera had exhibited a sudden spike in activity which indicated the volcano could erupt in as little as two weeks. They pointed out that an eruption of the volcano could very well throw all of United States into a 200-year-long volcanic winter, with ash blotting out the sun, and pyroclastic flow irreparably damaging the surrounding ecosystem.
https://cdn.superstation95.com/images/yellowstone-melted-road.jpg?1459916429
Also in 2015, several roads through Yellowstone were closed after the pavement began to melt and bubble due to extreme temperatures rising beneath the earth’s surface. No one has yet been able to pinpoint what triggered this sudden surge of volcanic action. Officials monitoring the volcano were primarily concerned with keeping curious thrill-seekers out of the park, as well as safely vacating surrounding areas to prevent potential casualties.

At the time Senior Volcanologist, Richard Dunn, gave the following report in regards to the volcano’s alarming activity. “This is something which could have never been accurately predicted ahead of time. This unforeseen flux of activity is quite concerning, and flies in the face of all our previous studies regarding this particular volcano. Our chief concern at this point are getting people to safety.”


DO NOT PANIC; Just Be Aware

IT IS VITAL THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THERE IS NO OFFICIAL WARNING WHATSOEVER ABOUT ANY ERUPTION OR EVEN ANY PROBLEM AT YELLOWSTONE AND YOU SHOULD NOT TREAT THIS ARTICLE AS ANY TYPE OF WARNING.

Please don't go off, half-cocked, and start calling authorities about this report because there is absolutely no need to do that; if they feel there is anything the public needs to know, they will tell us.

We are simply reporting the OFFLINE status of the public seismographs and now (april 6) confirming the change was DELIBERATE.

Of course, there is that very first graphic image above with all the red dots showing the HUGE amount of earthquakes taking place at Yellowstone, but even though it was quietly sent to us, we do not know how to properly INTERPRET that graphic; it might be nothing out of the ordinary at all.

The purpose of this article and the intent of the authors is merely to report news of an unusual outage of important public information. It seems wise to us to explain what's at stake if, Heaven forbid, something were to go wrong at Yellowstone. We cannot emphasize enough, we have no word whatsoever of anything wrong right now and you should NOT panic or change your life in any way at all on account of this report. Just be aware. Someone decided they didn't want the public to be able to see the seismic activity anymore; at least in the manner we had all become accustomed.

We have a feeling this is not good.

The fact that they are taking the site off-line is not a very confidence inspiring move.
 
Thank you for pointing this out; it looks like there are some movements!

I do not have much knowledge regarding volcanoes; by reading the above posts, I understand that the Yellowstone volcano is one "closer to the surface":

Far beneath the ground in Yellowstone National Park, is something called a "Hot Spot." It is a place where the molten core of the earth is closer to the surface than at other places.

It's very interesting!

Here is a map, from the German Wikipedia, showing "Hot Spots" around the globe :

Interestingly this event happened just two months days after a team of scientists re-evaluated the risk posed by supervolcanoes, including Yellowstone:

Yellowstone about to blow? Scientists warning over SUPER-VOLCANO that could kill MILLIONS
SCIENTISTS have warned the world is in "volcano season" and there is up to a 10% chance of an eruption soon killing millions of people and devastating the planet.

and one month after a scientific paper established that the power source of Yellowstone was actually the Juan de Fuca Ridge.

The Juan de Fuca ridge has been particularly active lately: according to a controverted buoy record the Juan de Fuca plate suddenly dropped 4 feet on January 17th, an unusual 'slow' earthquake struck the West coast in December and January, a 7.1 quake hit Alaska on January 24th and a series of daily tremors was recorded from January to March in Washington state and Oregon

Thanks Pierre for the updates, well it definitely looks like something is brewing beneath Yellowstone - and I think the fact that the seismographs are now offline, is probably a big indicator that the intensity may be increasing rapidly...

Casper, check this out and see what you think:

__http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/yellowstone_monitoring_47.html

Now click on any of the rectangles which represent seismic stations in Yellowstone. You can then click on the 24 hour report and get a second by second report of seismic activity. This site has operated like this for years. You can get some good info by clicking on 'seismicity' on the left column.

I would like to point out a few things about the article.

First of all, Yellowstone was never evacuated in June of 2015. A short stretch of road for was closed for 2 days because the not so bright (I am trying to be nice here) decision was made to try to fill in rough surfaces with a wet tar that never hardened. It stayed liquid and was getting thoroughly messed up as people drove through it; it was also getting on their cars. Look at the picture of the road in the article. It is a perfectly straight road for about 300 feet. Notice only the center of the road looks "melted'. The edges of the road are perfectly intact. Do you honestly believe there is a hotspot in a straight line aligned perfectly with the center of this road? If the road were melting from below, there would be liquid asphalt running everywhere from underneath.

Now to that myth that Yellowstone erupts every 600,000 years. The map of the calderas correctly states it erupted 640,000, 1.3 million, and 2.1 million years ago. So closed intervals are between .64 and 1.3 million, and 1.3 million and 2.1 million. This gives closed intervals of 660,000 years and 800,000 years. Where is there a pattern of eruptions every 600,000 years?

The map of eruptions shows what appears to be a M6 quake in north center Yellowstone. A quake of this magnitude would have been felt for many miles, and would definitely have made the mainstream news. I live near Yellowstone and have not felt or heard of such a quake.

I could not help but notice that the author of the article is anonymous. There is no name or picture at the end of it, so there is nobody to contact to verify this story. I find this interesting.

I was watching a video sometime ago that claimed the ground rises i think 1 inch a year,
and remember this :
_https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_csBXWlUA4


all these science reports saying , "oh our studies show the volcano will never explode and we have nothing to worry about since it hasn't exploded." It's like , seriously?

we now know cosmic activity can trigger it, literally anything at this point.


for them to make it off-line intells some huge potential risk of seismic activity, sinkholes, or explosion, not to mention, sudden fires, animal deaths in the ocean floor, and release of gasses all over the place.

Something is going on for sure! A guy on youtube, Tom Lupshu, who keeps an eye on 'earth change' related matters, had been in contact with someone at the University of Utah for the past year, on a regular basis. When questioned as to why the Yellowstone seismographs were taken off-line, the guy at UoU said "I can't talk about this at this time Tom" and hung up on him. :huh:

Yellowstone Alert! Seismographs Taken Offline Over Large Earthquake Swarm

Published on Apr 6, 2016

I only have limited information at this time but from what I am hearing is there has been a large earthquake swarm near the site of Yellowstone Supervolcano. I am not trying to be alarmist at all. We are just trying to gather as much information as possible about what is going on with this situation. An Individual I have been working with for over a year was very distressed over the phone and hung up. Share this around and see if we can get some more opinions as to what is going on. Thanks in advance for your help!
STAY AT THE READY...

There seems to have been increased seismic, volcanic and meteor fireball activity very recently too, but in particular 'electrical discharge' type events. See the recent eruptions at Sakurajima Volcano in South Japan (http://www.sott.net/article/315941-Amazing-eruption-at-Sakurajima-Volcano-South-Japan-multiple-static-lightning-discharges) and on the same day at Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano (http://www.sott.net/article/315832-Mexicos-Popocatepetl-volcano-lights-up-night-sky-with-spectacular-eruption). Around the same time, there was a possible electrical discharge event in northern Ireland (http://www.sott.net/article/315748-Electrical-discharge-event-Multiple-flashes-temporary-power-outage-and-loud-bang-in-Belfast-Ireland). Not to mention so many more lightning strikes/fatalities; and transformers, houses, boats, cars, e-cigarettes etc blowing up!

Hi Felipe, this video has been totally discredited, even in this forum. These bison are actually running into the park not out of it. They are merely enjoying a spring day and their running has nothing to do with earthquakes. These are only 20 out of 4700 bison in Yellowstone, and none of them are rushing to leave the area. In fact, there is a big controversy over culling the number of bison in the park because the ecosystem will not support these numbers.

Hi Anam Cara,

I have pointed out in the forum several times before that Tom Lupshu is a totally discredited nonexpert on Yellowstone Park. Previously he jumped on the bison "rushing from the park" video which has been proven to be the exact opposite of what he said it portrayed.

He also stated that there was a huge sinkhole opening up in Yellowstone. This was at a time when the park was closed, so how did he know it was there? Also he claimed the nearby towns of Bozeman, MT and Cody Wy were being evacuated because of this sinkhole. This never happened. His ignorance of the area shows in that there were several towns even closer to the park which he never mentions being evacuated. Once the park opened, there was no sign of a sinkhole. Research Tom Lupshu and you will see that nothing he ever said about Yellowstone has ever been true.

Hi Palinarus.

What closure? As I pointed out, the seismic activity can be found on the government's Yellowstone website here:

http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/yellowstone_monitoring_47.html

Yellowstone park closed for the winter season on March 15. It opens for the summer season on April 15. Swarms of earthquakes are nothing new for Yellowstone. There has not been any sign of not opening Yellowstone Park on April 15. When that happens, then I will be concerned.
