CALM AFTER THE STORM — Scott Snell ventured onto Main Street in Beacon a few minutes after midnight on Sunday morning (Jan. 20) to capture this snapshot of the city’s thoroughfare cleared of snow, cars and people. (Photo by Scott Snell)

LUNAR LIGHTS — A super wolf blood moon lit up the sky from about 10 p.m. to 1:45 a.m. on Jan. 19 and 20, seen here in a series of photos taken in Garrison by Gary Ditlow. A blood moon (lunar eclipse) coincided with a super moon (the moon makes a close approach); it’s also known as a wolf moon because it was the first of the year. (Photos and collage by Gary Ditlow)
