Backlit, but who cares when you are standing this close next to an active runway at ORD. 28-R departure.

Fantastic, and agreed, who cares if it's backlit when it works. Backlighting shouldn't be avoided, just needs to be managed.

Marylou Anderson, We were standing on the edge of the adjoing taxi-way, so perhaps something like 250 feet.
