Abstract

THIS evening, between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., looking north, twenty-two meteors were observed at Sidmouth, South Devon. The most brilliant one appeared about 8.15 p.m. G.M.T., and was travelling in a south-easterly direction at a moderate speed. The meteor was of a reddish colour, and was followed by a long trail of white light. It was frosty and beautifully clear, excepting a slight haze for a short interval.
