The Station Fire

It looks like the Mt. Wilson transmitter sites and observatory have dodged a bullet. The best source for updates about the fate of the structures on Mt. Wilson has been from the folks who operate the observatories. The Mount Wilson Observatory web site that was hosted on a server on the mountain has temporarily been moved to a Georgia State University server here: http://www.chara.gsu.edu/CHARA/fire.php. Their last posting about half an hour ago was extremely optimistic.

Here is a live feed of the fire from CBS. If the video is black or there are color bars, the helicopter is likely refueling. Check back in a bit.
