Abstract

WITH reference to Mr. T. Terada's letter in your issue of September 27 (p. 540), I noticed some similar effects while making experiments with a form of colour top last year. An old gramophone motor forms a very convenient way to observe this, and by using various discs painted in different rings and segments many curious optical effects may be seen.
