    Default Fire in the area of Lowell Observatory



    Sounds like there is some risk for Lowell Observatory with current fires in
    the area. Hope nothing bad happens.

    It was close. Here's an account by Brian Skiff, who has worked on Mars

    Luckily, the local news down in Phoenix had a handle on it. Our local
    NBC feed elected to do a sort of picture-in-picture approach, with less
    than one-third of the screen occupied by the Stanley Cup Final game in
    which the puck was invisible, while they rehashed the same information
    repeatedly for nearly two periods of play.
