Second new moon of this month. Black Moon. Supermoon. January 30, 2014

According to the definition of supermoon coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle, over 30 years ago and popularized only in the past few years the next supermoon comes today, January 30, 2014. It’s the second supermoon of this month, and it’s a new moon, not a full moon. The first new supermoon (super new moon?) of this month was January 1. According to Nolle’s definition, the year 2014 has a total of five supermoons. They are the two new moons of January, and the full moons of July, August and September. We’ve heard people call this second new moon a Black Moon, but that name doesn’t come from astronomy either. Like any supermoon, the January 30 supermoon will have an effect on Earth’s oceans. Expect large tides. We won’t have a single calendar month with two supermoons again until January 2018. Follow the links below to learn about the supermoons of 2014.

Winter Jam 2014


Greensboro, NC
Greensboro Coliseum
Saturday, February 15, 2014
6:00pm – Doors open at 5:00pm
For More Information:


Since its formation by NewSong in 1995, The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular has featured many of the top names in Christian music, including TobyMac, Third Day, Newsboys, Steven Curtis Chapman, Skillet, and more! The tour has outpaced any other tour’s attendance for the past three years (according to Pollstar, 1st Qtr.).

When NewSong began the Winter Jam, it was based on the idea of removing cost barriers, so more people could attend, be encouraged by the music, and hear the gospel. Years later, those are still the foundations of Winter Jam.

When you attend a Winter Jam event, you can count on ministry being the main focus. From a single concert in Greenville to the largest annual tour in the world, God has continued to bless Winter Jam, so we are excited to continue to be a part of what He is doing and look forward to what He is going to do in the future!

Forno Moto Food Truck Is Now Mission Pizza in the Arts District!

Forno Moto Food Truck Is Now Mission Pizza in the Arts District!

Just opened in the Arts District is a  pizza parlor familiar to many around town. Mission Pizza opened recently, but many people know it from its early incarnation, the popular food truck calledForno Moto.

We are located at Trade and 7th. No sign on the street yet, but look for the covered patio and you will find us. Right next to Lucky Strike Boutique. No reservations, no call ahead.

The owner is Peyton Smith, who  opened the eatery last week at the former Rescue Mission at 707 North Trade Street. What makes Smith’s style unique is the wood-fired brick oven he uses in his food truck and now restaurant.

His pizza style is different too. It’s Napoletana, which features Italians’ favorites: fresh ingredients and seasonings. Another thing that is unique about Mission Pizza is its seed money.

Smith used the popular Kickstarter funding mechanism to help get the restaurant started. The restaurant will be open Monday-Saturday from 5-10 p.m. For more information call 336-893-8217 or visit

You can also find them on Facebook at and also
