THE meteor described in your issue of August 23 (p. 389) was well seen here (lat. 1° west, long. 54° 15′ north) and formed a splendid object. It bore a little east of south, and its apparent path was nearly horizontal from west to east, towards and at about the same declination as the full moon. It would be interesting if its height above the earth were approximately ascertained and stated from the various observations made.
