Clepsydra Geyser is a geyser in the Lower Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park in the United States.

Clepsydra plays nearly continuously to heights of 45 feet (14 m).[3] Named by T. B. Comstock during the 1878 Captain Jones expedition.[4] The name Clepsydra is derived from the Greek word for water clock. Prior to the 1959 Yellowstone earthquake, it erupted regularly every three minutes.[5]
