astropixie has running update on the Siding Spring Observatory Fire in Warrumbungle National Park in Australia.
PS: Day After the Fire update from astropixie – telescopes mostly ok, astronomy facilities not so much
Oh no! I’m crossing my fingers for a minimal damage to the facilities! Kudos to the fire service for their efforts and hopefully everyone is safe.
(That Skymapper telescope has had more than enough of bad luck!)
Hoping for the safety of all the wonderful people and facilities at SSO.
