Abstract

THE return of the Lyrids this year was well observed here. Watching was begun on April 15, and continued until April 24, the series being broken only once, namely on April 20, when the sky was overcast. The weather was very favourable, the heavens on most nights being beautifully clear. Eighty-four meteors were registered, of which twenty were Lyrids.
