    DANIEL'S COMET, 1907d.—A continuation of Herr H. H. Kritzinger's ephemeris for Daniel's comet appears in No. 4245 of the Astronomische Nachrichten (p. 345, April 29). From this ephemeris we see that the comet is now apparently travelling very slowly through the constellation Virgo, nearly parallel to, and some 15′ south of, rhe equator. Its positions on June i and 13 will be α=13h. 52.im., δ=—0° 14′,3 and α=13h..48.im., δ=—0° 20′.2, respectively. The comet is now a little brighter than the twelfth magnitude, and crosses the meridian about 9.30 p.m.
