With all the bad news around the world, it seems like everyone has their eyes on one place to be on the evening news: the moon.
But what if the moon was just a giant billboard for your city?
That’s exactly what local news anchor, Mike Lichtman, and photographer John Stauffer decided to do, shooting an afternoon look at some of the best and worst things to do and see on the moon on a daily basis.
The sun set, and the world is awash in the lights of the moon in the sky above the city of Los Angeles.
The first thing we noticed was the fact that the moon had been eclipsed.
The sun was now setting.
What was it exactly?
The answer: a massive, blue moon.
This is what Los Angeles looks like in the evening, when the moon is eclipsed, with the sun setting.
(Los Angeles Public Library)Los Angeles was already in the shadow of a massive celestial body when Lichtmen and Staufer shot their photo.
The two were planning to take the photo in the city’s downtown area.
But it didn’t happen like that.
The day before, Lichtmans cousin had left a note for the photographer and the two went to look for him.
They were just about to leave when a police officer showed up.
“He said, ‘This is the guy that you’ve been looking for,'” Lichtmann told The Verge.
The officer, Lenny Leighton, took the note and told them they had to get off the street.
Lichtman and Stufer got out of their car and ran up the street, but the officers stopped them and told the duo to take a different route.
“The officer just pointed his finger at us, and I was like, ‘Oh, this is not right,'” Stauffers cousin, Jason Ritz, said.
“He was like: ‘I’m going to go find your cousin.'”
The pair left the police station and headed down a residential street.
They got to a nearby gas station and ran out.
They pulled over, but not before the officer spotted the pair’s car and asked them if they were in trouble.
The man who ran the gas station was a police sergeant, and he was also looking for a car to arrest.
The man who had been the first to see them stopped his car and walked up to the pair.
Licht and Stutz were shocked, and they immediately started yelling for their friend, the officer.
The officer came up to them, pulled his gun out of his waistband and told Stuffer and Licht to drop their guns.
But Stutz said that he was going to tell the man to leave the car and leave.
The pair then got out and tried to explain to the officer that they were not in trouble and that they didn’t need to get out of the car.
“So I told him that we didn’t know that he wasn’t coming to arrest us, that we were just trying to get away from the police,” Licht said.
The two had to explain their situation to the police sergeant.
“You need to know this is the right way to deal with someone,” the sergeant told the pair, according to Licht.
“I didn’t have to tell you that,” the officer said.
He then asked the pair if they wanted to press charges.
“We wanted to go out,” Stauffe told The LA Times.
The officers did not press charges against them, but it’s important to note that the pair were not charged with anything.
They could have, but Licht says that he and Stukers cousin were not going to press criminal charges.
Instead, the officers pulled the pair over, handcuffed them and put them in the back of a police car.
Litz explained that they could get away with it.
The officers then drove off.
“I was like,” Stueffers neighbor, David Pineda, told The Los Angeles Times.
“This is insane.”
Licht told the LA Times that he has never seen anything like it.
He said that the incident took place at around 10:30pm local time, and that he could not believe that the police did not charge the pair with a crime.
“It’s just one of those things where, I guess, it’s just like, the way the system works,” he said.
Lichett said that while they are not charged, the police officer was a “very good officer” and that his decision to do what he did was “really the right thing to do.”
