comet put In the tlmo'behlnil the sun
and ot enuuo taking n pi"p nt It wa
out of Iho qupxtlnii.
The torn?!, Imwuver, Is Kolns wesl
In Its rnth mil tho sun is KoInK east
Hence In a short time the comet will
bo on the west side of tho sun mill
wl I mnko l(s nearest approach to II
on the istli hi April. At mis iinie
(April 18) Iho comet can Do seen in
the east about two hours before sun
rlso. Us tall will point up from the
horizon and should therefore bo seen
before the hcnil, or brighter part, of
the comet. It will continue to rise a
llttlo va'rller each morning for about
n week, when It ought to bo n beau
tiful obleot In tho morning sky. Its
motion (mm this time will apparently
carry It back Inward tho sun nnd It
will appear lo bo going with Iho sun.
Tho reason for this srcmltig changu
In Its motion IS Hint It Is coming be
tween the enrh and sun and the much-tnlkcd-ot
collision Is about to occur.
On tho Sth of May we have n new
moon near tho point where tho path
of the moon passes through the Ian?
joining tho earth and the sun, Hence
the earth will pass through tho moon's
Mr.Hitlw and wc will have an ecllpso
of the sun. Slnco tho size of the
moon's shadow Is determined by the
dlvtunce of tho moon from tho sun
nnd by Iho diameter of tho moon. It
can be accurately foretold what parts
of the earth will pass through the
rhadow. The south polo Is the favored
spot this time, the eclipse' being vis
ible only In the Antarctic1 ocean mid
the southern part ot Australia. In
Identically the sanm way Hallcy's
riimet pafscs between the earth nnd
tho sun on tho IStli of May. '
I's tall, llko the moon's shadow
points away from the sun. Tho exact
dimensions of the tall do not depend
upon the slzo nnd distance or the
comet and, on that necouut, cannot
ho dotcrtnlucd. The pheiionenon is
therefore much uioro uncertain than
In tho case of tho solar eclipse, but
that It Is going to happen Is just at
certain ns that, tho ecllpso will oc

At the Utile of tho transit the
comet's head will bo only fifteen mil
lion miles from tho ear'h and IF lis tall
Is tluit Ioiik (It will probably bo much
longer), wc will certainly pass through
n In) go portion of It. While It Is very
fortunate for 'Iho dwellers of Iho earth
to have tho rare opportunity of passing
thrtnigh the tall of to great u comet.
It Is. very unfortunate (or the people
of i ilawall ncl .that It occurs

It Is greatly to be regretted that tha
