Abstract

LAST evening, September 3, at 10.40, a lunar rainbow was visible at Llanfairfechan, in a north-west direction. The are was continuous, and of a brilliant white light. It appeared to stretch across Anglesey from Beaumaris to Puffin Island. The bow did not last more than 2′ from the time it was first observed by us.
