Photographs of the Sky, Captured Across New York City at the Same Moment

When people living in the same city look up into the sky, they likely see the same clouds and colors, albeit from slightly different perspectives. Exactly how different are these perspectives? In a recent project called Same Sky NY, photographers living in New York City came together to find out.

The project was born back in early March 2013 after Gothamist used a photograph by photographer Emily Raw to illustrate a weather article:

Another New Yorker named Christine Jordan then noticed how similar the photo was to one of her own shots, captured just moments earlier from a different location in Brooklyn:

After exchanging emails, the two decided to launch a project that would experiment with “photo serendipity citywide”. They set up a Tumblr page for the project, came up with the hashtag #sameskyny to identify submissions, and then asked photographers based in New York City to snap a photograph of the sky at exactly 7:30PM on Wednesday, May 1st.

Here are some of the photographs that resulted:

Notice how many of the photographs show the airplane contrails in the sky.
