Satellite photo hoax

So, someone is spreading around this photo:

and telling everyone its a satellite photo taken during the recent power outages on the east coast.

*sigh*  I can’t blame the lady on my Facebook friends list who shared, she’s a perfectly nice older lady who’s really that clueless, so I sent her a private message instead of posting in the comments, though I almost changed my mind after I saw the originial version had 346 shares……

Look, this is the EXACT SAME PHOTO as was spread by email forwarders after the major east coast power outage in 2003.  It was confirmed a photo-shopped hoax then, and it hasn’t changed any.

Really people, don’t believe everything you see online, or are sent via email forward, it just goes to show how stupid you are (and don’t even get me started on the “Proctor & Gamble are owned by devil worshipers” forward…..)
