Season's greetings and happy New Year!
2021-12-24 – We can imagine ourselves in the stillness of nature, gazing up at the sky to see the dazzling northern lights.

Your eyes might have been drawn to the star in the centre. It features a Raven Moon illustration by Bill Helin, created for CSA astronaut Robert Thirsk's ISS expedition mission patch. In Mr. Helin's Tsimshian culture, the Raven Moon marks the advent of the winter solstice.
