January 2018 in photos: Parades, satellites and dusk skies


We hope your 2018 is off to a great start, Panthers! Hopefully, your resolutions lasted longer than one of our  Miami “cold” spells. Our photographers have been busy capturing the South Florida winter and the great events the kicked off the semester. Let’s take a look  at some of our favorite moments and images from the past month captured by them.
