Meteoric Shower, from near β Aurigæ


ON September 27 at 9h. 54m. I saw a very swift meteor of about 1½ mag. shooting through Cygnus, and leaving a streak of about 10° near a and y Cygni. The sky was clouding over at the time, and a portion of the luminous course of the meteor must have been hidden, but the observed path was from 306¼° + 45° to 299° + 32½°.
