      Fly Geyser in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada (USA). Located on a gated parcel of private property within the million-acre Black Rock Desert, Fly Geyser is not a natural phenomenon. It was created accidentally in 1964 from a geothermal test well inadequately capped.

      Earth, Fly Geyser, Nevada is not an entirely natural phenomenon; it was accidentally created by well drilling in 1964 exploring for sources of geothermal energy. The well may not have been capped incorrectly, or left unplugged, Dissolved minerals started rising and accumulating, creating the travertine mound on which the geyser sits and continues growing. Water is constantly released, reaching 5 feet in the air.

      Fly Geyser in Nevada- a very little known tourist attraction located right near the edge of Fly Reservoir. The Geyser is not an entirely natural phenomenon. It was accidentally created in 1916 during the drilling of a well. The well functioned normally for several decades, but then in the 1960s geothermally heated water found a weak spot in the wall and began escaping. Dissolved minerals started rising and piling up, creating the mount on which the geyser sits. It is still growing to date.
