The 2020 wildfire season saw an unprecedented series of lightning strikes sparking fires across the Bay Area. Located on Mount Hamilton, outside of San Jose, Lick Observatory was directly threatened by these fires and, for the first time in its history, was forced to evacuate.
In this talk I'll discuss the events leading up to the SCU Lightning Complex fire reaching Lick Observatory, the damage it caused to our site, and the resulting cleanup efforts before our return to operations.
Speaker: Joh Rees, Lick Observatory
