Abstract

The recent
eclipse, although not total, was so nearly so that it was
looked forward to with particular interest, and I determined
to make the best of the opportunity, with special reference
to the moon's appearance in shadow. I opportunately, the circumstances
were most favourable, the moon being free from
clouds throughout.
