A Meteor

Article metrics


ON Wednesday, September 14, at 7h. 9m. p.m. a large meteor was seen by about twenty people, including myself, who were driving from Penmaenmawr to Conway. It was first observed in the south-east just above the Conway mountain. It was visible for about 30°, fell very slowly in a wavy line inclined at a small angle to the horizon, disappearing behind the mountain. It seemed to be very near the ground as it passed over the mountain.
