Several months later, we presented a show about what we saw down in Australia, and a good part of the the images and discussion was about our adventures at Mt. Stromlo.
THe next morning, we found out that while we were talking, a bushfire had completely destroyed that venerable institution.
It was truly sad. I am glad we don't have another such catastrophe.

During the fires of last weekend, everybody was evacuated from Siding Spring and temperatures in the cooled domes rose to 20° Celsius!
Hope everybody is safe!
