Russian Observations of the Corona of August 9, 1896

Article metrics


I HAVE for many years been a reader of your honour able and interesting journal of science, NATURE. I beg you to accept for it the accompanying picture of the solar corona, as I had the opportunity to see it on August 9, 1896, in Sii-Kavuopio (on the Upper Muanio, in Lappania), where I went last summer as a member of the Lappanian Solar Eclipse Expedition of the Russian Astronomical Society.
