Siding Spring Observatory: How close the fire got

Leave a comment

Truly scary imaging from a NASA satellite showing just how close the fires got to the Siding Spring Observatory.


I don’t know whether to be scared at how close the flames got, or impressed that the fire prevention measures worked so well even with the vast swathe of destruction all around.

The protection measures certainly worked, so huge kudos to those responsible for them!
