Abstract

MAY I bring it briefly to the notice of readers of NATURE that there is apparently a reference in the history of Akbar, the Emperor of India, to a brilliant display of Perseid meteors in the Panjab about the end of July 1592. The passage occurs in the account of the 37th year of the reign, and just before the description of Akbar's expedition to Cashmere.
