Hello, this is my account of the 10 minute Whirligig geyser eruption on 
July 29:

Whirligig geyser started as it normally does. The play continued normal
for 5 minutes and the water level was beginning to lower. While it was
lowering it was still churning. I thought it was almost finished when
surprisingly the water level shot back up rapidly. It continued churning
for 5 more minutes until it finally quit and drained completely. I could
see where this could be 2 back-to-back eruptions but the pay of
Whirligig never stopped. I found this very intriguing. This might have
something to do with the Constant geyser temperature spike. I did not
see Constant the entire time I was in the basin although I did see
Fireball geyser.
