Thursday’s full moon over the Lake Norman area was big and bright. But on the other side of the world, earthlings saw a brief (27-minute) partial eclipse, and a pink moon.
How short was it? Twenty-seven minutes. It wasn’t visible here. (See more at “Earthsky.org”)

Rape in bloom off Davidson-Concord and June Washam roads. (PK Donson photo)
We featured this beautiful field of yellow rape in bloom a couple of weeks ago as our photo of the day. Since then, so many readers have sent notes or photos and suggesting we feature it (we already did!) that we’re bringing it back. Today we’re happy to offer another view from Davidson photographer P.K. Donson.
By the way, Donson’s photos will be featured during May in an exhibit in the atrium gallery of Davidson Town Hall, 216 S. Main St. A reception is planned Friday, May 17, from 7-9pm. Hope you can stop by.

PHOTOS OF THE DAY
We’re looking for photos that capture the people and places that make Cornelius 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!

Davidson College students, staff and professors gathered around the flagpole next to the Chambers Building at 11am Tuesday in a moment of silence to remember those who died or were injured in Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line
. A few people gathered and the crowd quietly grew as students emerged from classes or their dorms.
In a note to fellow students earlier Tuesday, Student Government Association Chris Ragsdale announced the observance. “Our campus community and our country as a whole have been deeply disturbed by the events that occurred in Boston earlier today. It is indeed a sad time, and a time for reflection and remembrance.”

CORNELIUS – A crowd came out to the Lake Norman YMCA on Lake Cornelius Saturday for the annual Family Fun Day. Activities included canoeing, archery, sports, bounce houses, face painting, and arts and crafts. The event also was a chance for the Y to promote its summer events, from day camps to the annual triathlon to adaptive water skiing, which allows people with disabilities to learn how to ski.
