SECRET OF TEE A URO RA BOREALIS.
Recent Discoveries Explained.
The London Spectator has for some months
distinguished Itself by a series of astronomical
articles, combining full scientific information
with popular interest. The latest is tho fol?
lowing, published in that paper on October 9,
and explaining some recent discoveries of im?
portance, tending to explain the true nature
of the Northern Lights :
Men of science have long felt that a strange
secret lay hidden in the brilliant folds of the
aurora. The magic arch, with its pointed
streamers shitting silently but swiftly across
the heavens, pulsating mysteriously as though
illuminated by the fitfully changing glow of
some concealed furnace, and rendered sur?
passingly beautiful by the brilliancy of Us col
ors, had always had strange charms formen of
thoughtful mind. And gradually a series of la?
borious researches had revealed i he laws which
associate this beautiful apparition with dis?
turbances affecting th? economy of our whole
earth, and not indistinctly connected willi the
habitudes of the solar system itself. Rut re?
cently a discovery has been made which is
even* more remarkable than any which had
ever before rewarded thc labor of physicists
a\liscovery at once Instructive and'perplex?
ing, revealing a bond of union between the
aurora and a phenomenon hitherto thought to
bc quite different in character, but leaving us
still to learn what the exact nature of ?nat
boml of union may be. Let us consider what
had been learned respecting auroral displays
and their relation to the earth's economy.
We had occasion lately to point out a sudden
.disturbance in the sun in 1859 which had been
presently followed hy intense magnetic uction,
the whoie electric sjstotn of the earth quiver?
ing, so to speak, under the influence ol' thc
solar forces educed by the disturbance. And
we mentioned that "among the signs of this
magnetic action brilliant displays of Hie auro?
ral streamers had been witnessed in both hem?
ispheres on the night following the solar dis?
turbance. This circumstance "teaches us the
true character of the aurora as strikingly as
any which astronomers and physicists had
patiently been gatheriug together during the
past halt century. We learn at once thal a
relation subsists' between the aurora, terres?
trial magnetism, and the central luminary of
And even if Ave were to pause here, we
should have learned enough to indicate the
significance and importance of the aurora.
Our earth, we may he sure, is not the only re?
cipient of that mystic influence which rouses
into activity thc phenomena we tenn mag?
netic. Over the whole realm which il. rides,
thc central orb sends forth the strange elec?
tric impulses. When our skies ure Illuminated
hy the magic streamers, wa muy be sure that
those ol' Venus and ol' Mars, of Jupiter and of
Saturn, nay even Hie skies of those unseen
orbs which travel fur out in space beyond the
paths ol' Uranus and Neptune, are lit up with
auroral displays. When once it has been
shown that we owe our auroras to solar ac?
tion, we recognize the cosmical character ol'
the display, and that, in a scene, the terrestrial
magnetism on which it depends is a bond of
nillnitv between our earth ami its sister orbs.
But while we were thus taught the ire- sig?
nificance o/ the aurora, we were left ii doubt
as to thc way in which thc solar action aroused
the electric luminosity in the upper regions of
our air. We could not even tell at what eleva?
tion tho light was suspended above our earth.
The most "eminent physicists differed in ther
views as to the possibility of learning where
the magic streamers really wave when we see
them most distinctly. While Arago had held
that lo attempt to measure the height of thc
aurora was as futile as to attempt lo measure
the height of a rainbow, Slr John Herschel
considered that precisely the same laws of
measurement might be applied to the aurora
os to any object raised high above the earth.
One point, however, was well determined.
The auroral lights are undoubtedly to bc as?
cribed to electric action taking place at a very
considerable height, where the air is very rare
indeed. It became, therefore, a question
whether anything could be learned by analyz?
ing the auroral light, as to the condition of
that particular part of our atmosphere in
which the electric action takes place.
Spectroscopic analysis, that strange and
powerful mode of research which has revealed
so many unlooked-for facts, was accordingly
applied to the light of a brilliant aurora. The
result was rather surprising. Instead of a
rainbow-colored streak of light, flitch as would
have appeared if thc aurora were due to tho
existence of partisans excited to luminosity
by dearie action, a single line of colored liglit
appeared. ' This indicated that the light is due
to the incandescence of some gas through
which the electric discharges in upper air takes
place. Hut this was uot thc circumstance
which attracted surprise. Eather, this was to
have been looked for. It was the position of
the line which astonished our physicists. If
the tras had'been one whicli chemists are ac?
quainted with, the bright lin? would have oc
cupied the position proper .to that gas, and
would at once have indicated its nature. Dut
there is no known element that thc spectrum
has a bright line where this one appeared.
Tiie observation has been repeated over and
over again, by Angstrom, by Otto Struvc, and
recently by Mr. Plummer, always with the
same result-we canuot tell what the sub?
stance mav be to whose incandescence or lu?
minosity the aurora owes Its brilliancy.
But now a most remarkable discovery has
been effected. Angstrom' has lound that the
mysterious line of the auroral spectrum exists
in'tiie spectrum of another object, which hud
been thought to be wholly difljfrent in charac?
ter. Eyer since its discovery by Cassini, the
zodiacal light hus been au object of interest to
astronomers. Gradually a ?ieorT had been
formed respecting it, "which had been sanc?
tioned by the authority of such men as Hum?
boldt and Sir John Herschel. Ii wari held that
this appearance is due to the light reflected
(rom a multitude of minute cosmical bodies
travelling around the sun within, thu orbit of
our ea tn. '
This theory had never been tested by spec
troscopfe analysis. Indeed, the zodiacal light
shines so taint ly ti.at it was hardly hoped that
its spectrum could bc rendmd vlsib'e. But ii
was confidently antichiated that if the zodiacal
light ever were thus .tii.?yzed. i;.; spectrum
would be that which the theory required
thal is, a very &int rc^radbbvioii of tile com?
mon solar spectrum.
.Now. ?ii length, v.vlisartrbrti Angstrom that
Um spectrum of tho zodiaml light has been
observcd.?and Instead of Ming, us had been
expected, a taint rainbo^jstolored streak. ii
presents Jiu! a singie^ml That Hue bj thu

Without proton li:);: to further Interpret tli!.;:

it affords of explaining'u ninnber of phenom?
ena which have long seemed most perplexing.
When once we recognise, tiie fact that electric
ac: ion ls effective in producing any of the ce?
lestial lights, we have a resource availa?

mors were asking how comets, tor ox
ample, could exhibit the spectrum of t ic
incandescent vapor of carbon-that Is, a
spectrum indicative of tim most intense heat,
when, as in the case cf WTnneck's cornel
(whose spectrum was of-this nature.) they
were farther fromthesun than tiie earth ls.
The action of the suit In exciting electrical dis?
charges would bc quite sufficient to account
tor Ulis*and similar phenomena. Again, it
has been long recognized, that tho necnliarl
tiesof cornets' tails seem only explicable as
due to electrical action; but astronomers were
unwilling to adopt such u theory without some
positive evidence ia its favor, we now have
such evidence; and it is most probable thal
the first long-tailed comet which is Bubmitted
to spectroscopic analysis will establish the
view which Euler put forth more than haifa
century ago, that comets' tails have some?
thing in common with the auront and the
zodiacal light. It would indeed be strange if
three of the most mysterious phenomena with
which men of science are acquainted should
find their explanation simultaneously.
