Abstract

SEVERAL circumstances delayed my observation of the planet Neptune this autumn until November 24. On that and the two following nights the light of Neptune was compared with the light of the star B.A.C. 1072; and, assuming that the light of the star was steady, that of Neptune was found to undergo apparently regular variations, but much smaller than they were last year.
