The so-called Station Fire, which now covers more than 120,000 southern California acres and is burning largely uncontained, continues to threaten the century-old Mount Wilson Observatory, home to astronomer Edwin Hubble at the time he made his landmark observations of the universe's expansion.
The observatory is currently unmanned due to the fire threat and the attending smoke, but a webcam atop Mount Wilson's 150-foot solar tower has provided observatory managers and concerned observers with a view from the scene. At 12:55 P.M. (Eastern Daylight Time) the camera showed a great deal of smoke but no flames.
At one point, the Station Fire also threatened NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, which now appears to be out of harm's way. The lab resumed normal operations today after a partial closure yesterday due to smoky conditions.
