That's been goin' around. It's a fake.
And a bad one at that. The person who made it
just made a black blotch and didn't even bother to match it to the
dark blue areas of the photo where there actually is no light.

Before I read that it's a fake, I could tell already that it wasn't real. :p
First, that doesn't show it going into Canada or into Michigan.
Second, I'm positive the blackout from space wasn't that perfect of a triange, and other areas weren't perfect circles. :p
