Satellite photos from the blackout

I know, I know, you've all seen the infamous picture of the satellite footage from the night of the blackout. The only problem? It was faked.

Here are links to before and after images from the actual satellite photos, as well as the page on the NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) website that shows them.

Before: http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/nightlights/blackout081403-20hrsbefore-text.jpg
After: http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/nightlights/blackout081503-7hrsafter-text.jpg

(Found out it was a fake on Snopes. Here: http://www.snopes.com/photos/blackout.asp)
