Abstract

AT 8.45 a.m. to-day the sun seen from here through a light mist was of a slightly metallic and very pale sea-green colour. The mist was not dense enough to render objects at a distance of twelve yards indistinct, but beyond that distance they rapidly became invisible. There was no wind, and the mist seemed free from smoke. I could form no opinion as to its height. Half an hour later, in Manchester, the sun glowed with the ordinary coppery-red hue it assumes when seen through a thin fog.
