In a metropolis like London, England, light pollution makes the night sky invisible. Only a few of the brightest stars and asterisms force their celestial light through the man made glow of the city. The night sky, one of the most beautiful of natural wonders is extinguished from view. That is where this time lapse comes into play.

'Blackout City', by UK-based photographer Nicholas Buer, is an experimental time lapse film that makes the invisible, visible. It attempts to show what the night sky would look like If there were ever to be a total blackout in the South East of England on a clear, moonless, summers night.

Tons of people in big cities have wondered what the sky would look like without light pollution in the night at one point in time or another. This project gives everyone a glimpse into a light-less sky.
