    THE FRENCH ECLIPSE EXPEDITION.—From a message published in No. 5 (1907) of the Comptes rendus we learn that the French eclipse expedition under the direction M. Milan Štefánik was unsuccessful owing to the fact that the Sky was covered with clouds during the whole eclipse. It would thus appear that none of the official expeditions dispatched from Europe for this eclipse obtained any photographs, for, as we noted previously, the German and Russian observers were equally unsuccessful.
