AN interesting observation of a waterspout is reported in the Marine Observer of April. The observation was made by Capt. G. Park, of s.s. Risaldar. To quote his words: “…The waterspout appeared to be semi-transparent, containing dark irregular masses or shapes. By selecting one or any mass I counted two seconds for this to revolve and which gradually eased until, when close to the cloud, the same mass revolved once in ten seconds”.
