A M4.5 earthquake and 5 aftershocks larger than M2.5 hit Yellowstone on June 16, 2017, while NASA is flying the world’s largest airborne observatory over the supervocano.

Currently NASA put’s their SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy), the world’s largest and most sensitive airborne observatory, every day in the air. And if NASA puts its SOFIA in the air it’s important. This Bird of Prey doesn’t go ‘hunting’ unless there is something TO hunt, they watching something, bet on it!

SOFIA’s 2.5-meter (8.2-foot)-diameter infrared telescope makes it possible to make scientific observations that are impossible for even the largest and highest of Earth-based telescopes.

Already four days during sunrise/sunset NASA is monitoring the sun but yesterday, flightradar24 shows that they were also monitoring Yellowstone National Park.

Remember the Massive Lake of Molten Carbon the size of Mexico recently found under Yellowstone? The molten carbonate sits beneath Yellowstone National Park, which in and of itself is a supervolcano with the power of a massive eruption.

Here a video reportig about the earthquake swarm at Yellowstone Park:

In Parallel, a series of 6 earthquakes with magnitude larger than 2.5 (M4.5, M2.7, M2.6, M3.1, M2.9, M2.8) hit inside the Yellowstone National Park.

This is really something too pay attention to considering NASA is monitoring this area and we now have a decent M4.5 quake. The last major eruption was 640,000 years ago at Yellowstone, however if the super volcano did erupt it could cause the US to go into a volcanic winter.

It is called a 22-degree halo because the ring has a radius of approximately 22 degrees around the sun or moon. According to the site Atmospheric Optics, the halo remains the same diameter no matter what position the sun is found in the sky.
