warragul power cut jan 2014 10 for the warragul citizen by william pj kulich

LAST night’s power cut may have been inconvenient, but the lack of light provided stargazers with a chance to see the night sky better than usual while casting a surreal shadow over Warragul’s CBD.

Above: the Warragul cenotaph with a more starry backdrop than usual.
