There is a new photo on 1-18-08.com. It looks like this might be what happened before picture #8, since it is still at night.
Of course this would mean that they knew about the monster BEFORE it made it to NY.
UPDATE: the link above is to our mirror of the original 1-18-08 site. DO NOT go to the original 1-18-08 website anymore. The domain expired and is no longer controlled by Paramount, and someone else snatched it up to run ads with malware.
