Let there be light



There will be more in a slideshow at nhregister.com later tonight, but here's a sneak peek with one of the four light towers up at the Bowl. The light towers each have 15 6,000 watt bulbs.

If you click on photos they will appear full size on your screen.


Catherine Avalone-New Haven Register 

Lighting technicians from Musco Lighting from Oskaloosa, Iowa, adjust one of four portable lighting trucks, Thursday, November 19, 2015, each containing fifteen individual lights producing six thousands watts to illuminate the Yale Bowl for Saturday's game against Harvard. The lighting is a first in the history of the Bulldog's football program.










This is with two banks of lights illuminated.




Photographer stated each of the lights was adjusted hundreds of times as the engineers walked around the field with light meters. Walkie talkies were used to communicate with those adjusting each of the bulbs.

Love the pics, thanks for posting Sean.

I hope the shots of the field mean that Yale has finally stopped painting Harvard's crimson H on the field for The Game. I'm all for being reasonably hospitable but that has bugged me for years.

I think Yale should install lights for a 6:00 start to next year's Yale-Dartmouth game.

Do we know yet definitively whether or not this is the final game on natural grass in the Bowl?

We stopped painting the large crimson "H" or large orange "P" at midfield of our final home game when we hired Tom Williams. In my opinion, since then, things have gotten worse.

Painting the "H" or "P" for HYP was a truly unique thing in college football. Nobody else puts their rivals' initials on the field. Maybe we benefitted from some cosmic karma by doing so.

Since Williams arrived, perhaps we've suffered from ending our good manners. Is it The Curse of Emily Post?
