It's confirmed now - Mother Earth is a blue eyed girl! You see the center pond and main vent on the Geysir itself, as its steaming watery eye silently stares towards the sky, in the dead of night at 01:03 AM. This is the oldest hot spring known in the world, residing in Haukadalur, Reykholt, southern Iceland. It's first mentioned in writing in the year 1294, when a series of earthquakes first triggered it off. The Icelandic word geysir was later established as a term used world-wide for this phenomenon. Today it is almost dormant, just one or two half-hearted blows a day to max 10m/30ft height. At it's peak it shot up to 60m/200ft in the air!
