This is a reference to lens flare.  We've all seen this in still pics and
in the movies, and it generally takes the form of a series of ghost images
in the shape of the lens diaphragm.  It is caused by internal reflections
of bright light inside the lens.

But this photo was supposed to have been taken during the blackout, or at
least that is what the text implies.  What would be the bright light source
that caused this lens flare????

Has anyone here seen the photo referred to?
