Leonid Meteors

Naturevolume 79page99 (1908) | Download Citation



THE nights of November 13–15 appear to have been generally overcast, and to have furnished no opportunities for watching the display of meteors. But November 16 was clear at some places, and Mr. Ellison Hawks, of Leeds, counted eighty-seven meteors between 10h. and 14h., of which twenty-six appeared to be certainly Leonids, while many others pursued nearly same paths, and probably belonged to same stream. Large meteors were recorded at 12h. 26m. and 13h. 12m. shooting from Taurus and Aries towards the planet Saturn.
