THE aurora seen in Ireland on July 27, and described in NATURE, August 5, p. 312, was visible in this vicinity. It was the finest observed thus far this year, with the exception of that of May 8. Other dates on which the aurora has been seen in this locality recently are as follows: June 29, June 4, and April 14. It has been noted that these appearances of the aurora have been coincident with the return of the disturbed area on one side of the sun (see NATURE, July 22, p. 278), and likewise with widespread and violent storms.
