Nature volume 141, pages 10941095 (18 June 1938) | Download Citation



A REMARKABLE shower of fireballs is reported to have been seen in southern Sweden on May 27 between 18h 20m and 20h 12m U.T. About 18h 40m, two specially bright fireballs, visible in full sunshine, appeared over Bornholm Island. The general direction was from west to east. Further details of these and other fireballs are requested by A. Corlin, Lund Observatory. It is hoped that sufficient data will be available later to enable the paths to be computed.
