“A METEOR SHOWER AT NORTHWICH.—At Northwich on Monday night, February 3, about ten o'clock, a very brilliant meteor was observed in the sky passing from east to west. The meteor displayed an intense white light in its course, and emitted sparks which appeared of various hues. It was visible about six or eight seconds, and from one to two minutes after the passage of the meteor a loud rumbling report like distant thunder was heard. The night was very clear, and starlight at the time.”
