Hello, Santa Clarita Valley! Welcome to's Daybreak, your point of entry for the day, and a quick journey through the past, present and future. Let the adventure begin:

Today is Sunday, Sept. 13, the 256th day of 2009. There are 109 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On Sept. 13, 1959, the Soviet space probe Luna 2 became the first manmade object to reach the moon as it crashed onto the lunar surface. (Because of the time difference, it was already Sept. 14 in Moscow when lunar impact took place.)

Ten years ago:
A bomb blamed by authorities on Chechen rebels devastated an eight-story apartment building in Moscow, killing at least 124 people.
