The Plaza sky, usually drowned out by annoyingly bright street lamps, was full of stars during the blackout. | Photos of Star-cata by Dave Wilson.

Ahh, electricity. A day after the big PG&E shutdown, Humboldt is mostly back to normal.

But it wasn’t all bad. The same weather that caused the blackout also gave us some extra clear skies, allowing our costal cities to get a good look at the stars.

Local photographers David Wilson and Dave Feral shared these photos of last night’s skies with the Outpost as seen from Arcata and Blue Lake.
