Redding has their own power company so the lights stayed on.  Making the best of it, we had nice dark skies and no fires up here so maybe the 4 day outage was effective.  I don't recommend it though.

This shot is super. A lot of detail in the sky and just the right amount of glow on the horizon to give perspective. I would remove the bright airplane streaks.

Making the most of your dark skies, Mike! Good to hear your area is safe from these devastating fires.

I guess that's one good thing about the blackouts - easier Milky Way shooting :)
I'd probably eliminate the airplanes from the shot.
