RECENT METEORS.7mdash;Mr. W. F. Denning writes that two large meteors were seen at Bristol on October 17 at 7.I5 and 10.46. The first of these descended just under the “Pointers“ in Ursa Major from 1640 + 52° to 164′ +450, and moved very slowly. The other meteor traversed an unusually long path of 113 degrees, the flight being from 1630 +74° to 330°–60°. The duration was about six seconds, and the meteor threw off a bright streak all along its extended course. The radiant point was near the horizon in 152° +39°, but no further accounts of the object have yet been received.
