Our primary focus is the advancement and preservation of the Arts, Culture and the Environment through the use of digital technologies. We strongly believe that Idyllwild is much more than a collection of pleasant shops . . . but in fact a collection of creative talent located in a dramatic environment that rivals any other area on earth.

IDYLLWILD FIRE
ANALYSIS FROM CHP LOGS


In reviewing the CHP logs for the initial report of fire, we can form some picture of the Cranston Fire origins. At 11:40 AM on Wednesday 7/25/18, CHP issued a "Report of Fire" notice to the media. The location was reported near where Sr74 East and the Old Control Rd intersect (closest landmark is 1.83 Miles East of Bee Canyon Truck Trail near mile marker 51). This places the start of the fire at 5.31 miles WSW of Idyllwild, as the crow flies, and 12.53 miles by road along Highway 243 and State Highway 74 (drive time estimated at 21 minutes from Idyllwild). In review of the Cal Fire site, coordinates are essentialy the same. For the mathematically curious, I used 33.725905 for latitude and -116.80601 for longitude.

From the latitude and longitude provided from the CHP report and employing Google APIs, we can map the approximate location of the start of the fire. Using street views feature, we get the following:

NOTE: The above information is an estimate only, based on reported information. Accuracy is not assumed in any sense.

PLANET RISE / SET TIMES
IN IDYLLWILD
Idyllwild is a wonderful place to 'gaze' at the stars, planets, and moon. Below are the rise & set times (24 hour format) of all the planets in our solar system (including Pluto). The celestial bodies are arranged in chronological rise time order and can be experienced in the Idyllwild area by looking in the lower southeast sky (towards Garner Valley).

If the name of the planet is in purple, then it is currently visible under suitable conditions. To view the setting planet, look in the lower southwest sky, towards Hemet.
