Brilliant Meteor of Feb. 3

Article metrics


To supplement Prof. Osborne Reynolds' interesting paper on the meteor of February 3, which he saw in Manchester, and which he thinks must have passed over Chester and Liverpool (NATURE, February 20, p. 315), I enclose you a cutting from a local Cheshire paper showing that this meteor was seen about the same time in Northwich, which is some twenty-five or thirty miles S. W. from Manchester, and almost in a direct line drawn from Manchester to Chester.
