Sometimes a morning sky can be serene and surreal. This past Sunday a sublime sky appeared above a snowy slope in eastern Switzerland. Quiet clouds blanket the scene, lit from beneath by lights from the village of Trubbach. Mittlerspitz, the snow covered mountain, posing dramatically on the upper left, hovers over the small town of Balzers, Liechtenstein. The Alps can be seen across the far right, just below the rising sun. Visible on the upper right are the crescent Moon and the bright planet Venus. Venus will remain in the morning sky all month.
