Title: 08/20/02 Blackout comparison images
Submitted On: 12/28/2003
Photographer: Todd Carlson
Equipment Used: Pentax 28mm

These two images drastically show the difference of what can be seen when there isn't any light pollution.

On the the night of August 20, 2003 when the power blackout affected millions across the North American east coast, plunging them into darkness.

From my house (where I used to live) I took an image of the southern Milky Way overtop of my neighbour's house. This direction faces directly into the glow of Toronto, Ontario and normally there is hardly any stars visible.

The following night, after the power was restored and the sky was back to it's normal, light-polltued self, I took another image to use as a comparison.

The difference is quite stunning!

Blackout image: 90 seconds, unguided, 28mm, f2.8, ISO 800.

Following night: 30 seconds, 28mm, f2.8, ISO 800.

Taken in Goodwood, Ontario.
