Stars and Light Pollution During a Power Outage

Back in October, while in the middle of a multi-day power outage due to the unexpected snowfall at the end of the month, I decided to enjoy the somewhat-darker skies to enjoy a bit of star gazing.  Our complex was completely in the dark, so instead of street lamps and light-filled windows, everything was just black (except for the occasional flickering candle, other small light, or a car’s headlight).  However, surrounding areas had power, so there was still a good amount of light pollution making it difficult to see all of the sky, as you can see in the photo above showing the a silhouette of the apartments.  Still, I was able to see more stars that night at the apartment than I ever had before.
