Wildfires blazing near you
Mt. Wilson Observatory complete time lapse footage 8/25/09 [4:20 pm] to 9/1/09 [1:39 pm]
We compile the Mt. Wilson Observatory towercam footage from Aug 25 2009 [4:20 pm] to Sept 1st [1:39 pm]. The intro is from Aug 27 at 9am shot from Angeles Crest highway and the 210 freeway. The first fire is from the Azusa fire and the second fire is from the Station fire.
frame rate = 30 frames per second, thus 24 seconds = 1 day. We are greatly indebted to the UCLA Physics and Astronomy department for providing this time lapse feed over the internet. I simply wrote a computer program to continuously downloaded these images and have produced this time lapse movie.
