Poomacha Fire Anniversary

One year ago today the Poomacha Fire broke out at the base of Palomar Mountain. The fire consumed over 49,000 acres and many homes in the area. While one of the observatory's employees did lose his home in the fire, the observatory and all of the homes on the top of Palomar Mountain were saved due to the tremendous efforts of the many firefighting crews that worked on the blaze.

Thank you firefighters.
