Abstract

THE iridescent colours in clouds, observed in England and Scotland in December last, were also visible here December 8, 9, 10, and 12. On the first day, about 3 p.m., the coloured clouds were arranged in a horizontal layer about 20° high, between 20° and 80° azimuth west. In the half altitude a fine stripe broke forth from the background of the ordinary (but not dense) cumulostratus.
