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!

After camping out in temporary quarters for the early part of the school year, the startup Davidson Green School has moved into its new home in a renovated house on South Main Street. With about two dozen students in grades K-4, the school offers a curriculum that emphasizes leadership and environmental stewardship.
Information sessions for parents of prospective students are planned in the new year. The sessions will be Jan. 16, 5pm; Feb. 3 and 26 at 5:30pm; and March 6 at 6pm. Register at DavidsonGreenSchool.org
