Mt. Wilson Tower Cam is back!

Mt. Wilson's tower cam is back!

That's the view tonight of the 100-inch Hooker Telescope from under bright moonlight with fires in the background. I missed it until just now, but there was a wonderful update posted yesterday and all looks good for Mt. Wilson Observatory.

How is the air quality on Mount Palomar? I want to escape the Station Fire fallout as you can tell by this webcam. I am trying to find a webcam in the general vicinity.

It is certainly better than it was in the LA area when I was there on Wednesday. It hasn't smelled of smoke here in over 24 hours.

Unfortunately it hasn't been good enough for us to observe in just over a week.
