Total Solar Eclipse of Aug. 31.—Unfortunately, clouds obscured the eclipse for many of the observers. A telegram to the Times from Dr. J. Jackson at Parent reports that the clouds were less thick early in totality, and some useful coronal photographs may result from exposures with the long-focus instrument; but it is feared that the photographs with the slitspectrographs are failures. Prof. F. J. M. Stratton at Magog has cabled to NATURE: “Cloudy, no success” and Prof. H. Dingle at Montreal says: “No observations possible at McGill University, Montreal. Sky covered with clouds throughout eclipse.”
