TuE EXPECTED SHowFi-INm:RL
EsTING SCIENTIFIC M':CiLArTw0s.
Professor Ferguson of the Nation
al Observatory in Washington, i.
making arrangements to take
scientitie observations on the ex
pected meteoric di:splay which will
come off during the present month.
The subject of meteors and
shooting stars has engag,ed the at
tention of eminent astronotm. rs
within the last century to a great
er extent than ever before among
them Professors Olmstead. Twi
ning and N ewton have written
valuable papers in connection with
The appearance of shooting
stars is quite common, but in the
months of August and November
of each year they are seen in great
er nunbers, generalli about the
10th of August and the 12th ot
November. The great meteoric
shower of 1799 seems to have
drawn the attention of astrono
mers more particularly to this sub
ject, aru d from that time to the re
currence of the meteoric showers
of 1833, and up to the present day,
they have been endeavoring to re
fer the different phases and charc
teristic of the phenomenon to
known laws, and to establish t.e
exact aniversary of its appearance.
Thus far the more brilliant of its
these meteoric showers have oe
curred at intervals of thirty-three
years ; that of 1833 was especially
distinguished by the immense
number of moving meteors to be
.seen at once, and for the remarka
ble size and splendor of many of
them. Among the myriad of
blazing meteors visible on that oc
casion, one was seen at several
*places on this continent. It was
recognized by several observers by
its extraordinary size and brillian
cy, as well as by the length of time
-its train remained visible. n~ hich
was about ten minutes. The iu
minous train seemedl to follow the
meteor in a serpentine course. andi
finaly disappeared in a nebulous
cloud, many times larger than the
-moon, and which continued to
move onward with a velocity
greater than the clouds.
The meteoric displays of 1799
1833 were characterized by the
fall of meteorites, which, rushing
towards the surface of the earth
-with a loud noise, penetrated be
neath it several feet. The periodi
city of these starry showers is not
so definitely ascertained with re
gard to the day as to the year.
They have occurred to a _greater
e-r less dogree in the months of
August and November, from 1333
to 1839; but the most remarkable
-of them have appeared on the 12th
of November, or bet ween that (late
and the 14th.
The next appearance of the
motorie phenomenon, therefore, is
expected on or about the 12th of
*next month. The observations of
astronomers have dlemlonstraited
that the shoot.ing stars are more
numerous between miidniTht and
sunrise, and the majority of themi
agree in tixing the radianlt point
that point in which~ the lines deC
scribed hy the meteors inl their
flight centre-in the conistellation
-Leo, limit ing the area ofra'iiation
to the immediate vicinity of Regu
hus in the neck of the lion. Othi
ers assign the radiant point to the
* The theory most generally ac
counlting( for the regular meteoric
showers, is that an unusual agg&re
gation of these asteroids exists in
-the plane which is reachedl by the
earth at that point of its orbit. andi
through which the earth is several
hours ini passing, alt hlough obser'
vations have not been suilentiv
numerous to establish the exact
per'iod of the earth's arrival at this
part of the orbit. During the
flight of the meteors in November,
1833. much apprehension was
manifested from the fear t hat on e
or more of these asteroids woul
come into r-ollision with the earth:
but hitherto no disast rous conseC
quences have ensued from this
grand celestial display, and al
though there is some reason to be
-her e that an event of this kind is
possible, scientifie men unite in the
opirion that such a calamity is not
within the bounds of probability.
