The Total Solar Eclipse of May 9, 1910


UP to the time of writing (May 28) no account has been received from Mr. F. K. McClean with regard to the erection and adjustments of the various instruments he took out with him for the solar eclipse. It will be remembered that the observing station he chose was near Port Davey, and he selected a small island, called Hixson Point, for the actual site of the camp. The accompanying illustration (Fig. 1) indicates the position of this island in relation to the neighbouring country, and is from a photograph taken towards the east from Morning Hill.
