Barnard's Comet


LAST night (September 22) this comet was well seen in the 3-foot telescope. It was large (at least 4′ over), brighter to the middle, but without nucleus; a position was measured from a faint star involved in the light of the head. At 8h. 20m. the position by circle reading was a 19h. 45m. 50s., and 117° 16′ 30″ N.P.D.
