What a gorgeous morning Tuesday was, with a photogenic dawn and sunrise. Sylvia Schnople saw the waning crescent moon and Venus looking east from her balcony on Cotton Gin Alley.
It turns out that the moon and Venus are near their closest point right now, and will be closest on Wednesday morning, according to skywatcher Deborah Byrd at EarthSky.org.
Alas, the current forecast calls for clouds at dawn and sunrise Wednesday so we may miss it here in the Lake Norman area. All the more reason to enjoy Sylvia’s photo today!

PHOTOS OF THE DAY
We’re looking for photos that capture the people and places that make Davidson what it is. It could be a pretty picture from an event, a youth sports team photo, a pet, a quirky wildlife photo or an oddity. Send ‘em to us (email@example.com) and we’ll consider them for publication.
Requirements: Send us whatever you have – color or black-and-white JPGs preferred. If you have the ability to do so, we ask that you resize photos to not more than 600 pixels wide. That box on the front page of the site is exactly 595 pixels by 270 pixels, if you’re able to crop yourself. But you needn’t be limited to that size. Unlike our previous banners, with Photo of the Day, we can take any shape.
Wondering if you have something worthy? Call (704-896-0569) or email at the address above. And thanks for joining us!
