Astronomical Observations at Greenwich and the Cape


    THE first impression on seeing the annual volume for 1921 of “Greenwich Observations”1 is its thinness in comparison with the volumes of two or three decades ago. It appears to be the least bulky in the last hundred years. This is due to a reduction accomplished during Sir Frank Dyson's tenure of office by the suppression of much of the detail of the observations, but enough is still given to show the data on which the tabulated observations depend.
