  Following is word from the Mt. Wilson Observatory
  Wednesday, 9 Sep 09, 11:30 am PDT - A briefing is now underway
for the Mount Wilson strike teams in the CHARA conference room.
Because things are still not complete in the next division to our
east, there will be no back fire lighting today.  The anticipation
is that the "Victor" division will finish their work by mid-
afternoon, but that is too late to start the fire on this end.
  So, tomorrow morning now seems likely since all preparation
work should be in place.  There is a high pressure system moving
into the area with increasing temperatures and likely changes in
wind direction.  It may be that weather now becomes the
determining factor rather than preparation of fire lines, but
that is just my speculation.
  I will be leaving the mountain late this afternoon but Dave,
Larry and Jake will remain on station.  My updates will continue
as I get information from the mountain from them, and I will post
a final update from Mount Wilson today before Susan and I leave.
We will also post one or two more videos on Youtube including
one of our first drive up the Angeles Crest Highway.
  Bob Gonsett will be away from e-mail this afternoon.  If
anything of significance develops on Wilson, please notify
him at (760) 723-2700 so another newsletter can be published
