The Aurora of November 23, 1894



PERMIT me to call attention to a significant fact disclosed by a scrutiny of the observations of the aurora of November 23, 1894, and having an important bearing in discussing the auroral dimensions, and which appears to have escaped notice (see NATURE, January 10). I refer to the invisibility of the objects at Dingwall, to the ohservers at Tynron, Dumfriesshire. Extracts from the synchronous accounts in NATURE, November 29, p. 107, and January 10, p. 246, will prove this statement.
