14188 15 May 2020 @ 1513 --- JarnoO (wc) Had a dense plume of steam late this minute, which appeared to be originating from eastern vent. Steam decreased after ±15s. Also steam observed in area close to said vent (doesn't appear to be drift from Beehive). I'm not all that familiar with Scissors, but overall it seems Scissors is hotter than I previously observed.
