On the Cover: THE VIEW through a window of the U.S. space shuttle Columbia, photographed on August 9, 1989, with a Linhof camera and 70 mm lens. The photograph, taken from an altitude of approximately 300 km about two hours after local noon, shows complex patterns of sunlight reflecting from the ocean surface near Georges Bank and the southwestern Gulf of Maine, off the U.S. east coast. The sun-glitter patterns reveal several interesting ocean processes (see the article beginning on page 43). Photographs taken from low orbit often show mesoscale and sub-mesoscale ocean phenomena with remarkable clarity, providing information difficult to obtain by other methods. (From NASA photograph number STS 28-151-216.)
