Warm Harbor

Warm water in the Dunkirk Harbor creates a refuge for gulls and waterfowl in the frigid weather.  The warm water is created by thermal pollution from a coal generated steam station.

Luna and Venus

The nearly new Moon and Venus put on a lovely show in the sky before sunrise this morning.

January's Full Wolf Moon

It's not completely full until tomorrow but if the weather forecast is correct, I don't think we'll see it then.  Below is a photo of the close pairing of Jupiter and the Moon after dark this evening.
