A Bright Green Meteor


AN exceedingly bright green meteor was seen here on the 8th inst. at 5.30 p.m. It passed from north to south under α and β Aries, which would give it an altitude of 19°. The path was parallel to the above stars and about 5° in length. This indication may serve to determine the height of the meteor if it was seen from elsewhere.
