Cover Page

This month’s cover features a photograph of the aurora borealis (northern lights) over the University of Saskatchewan in November 1958. The Institute of Space and Atmospheric Studies had been established at the university two years earlier to study the northern lights, related “disturbances” in the upper atmosphere and ionosphere, and the effects of solar activity on climate. The photograph is one of more than 13,000 images documenting students, faculty, buildings, and campus events and activities since the establishment of the University of Saskatchewan in 1907.
