Abstract

DURING last week I examined on three evenings the spectrum of this star apparently in the nebula. It appears to be continuous, extending from about D, as far as, or perhaps a little past F. Both Mr. Percy Smith and I are able to confirm Lord Rosse's conviction of the existence of a bright line or band. We compared its position with spark spectra, and feel satisfied that its position is not far from the bright line of the spark in air near to, and on the more refrangible side of D. The slit was of course necessarily wide, and the spectrum faint, so that this must only be considered as approximate.
