The Perseids

Article metrics


WITH reference to the note, August 18th, that no news of the Perseids had then come to hand, I fancy the shower must have been fairly bright this year. One of our scholars, C. E. Elcock, while crossing from Belfast on the 9th, saw some bright meteors in ten minutes between 9 and 9.30, one lasting some time. Afterwards only occasional ones occurred.
