The Aurora Borealis.
The Polar lighl is a light which
i Iroojiienlly seitn near the horizon,
bearing some resrinblnnce tu the
morning twilight, whetiie it has re
ceived tho naino of Aurora. In the I
northern hemisphere it is usually 1
termed " Aurora Borcalis, because
it is chiefly seen in the north. A
aimilur phenomenon is u'.so seen in 1
the southern hemisphere, where it
is called '' Aurora Australia, hach
of tht-m may, with greater proprie-1
ty, bo cnlloJ "Aurora 1'olaris,"
1'ular Light. They exhibit an end
leva variety of appearance.. In the
United States nn aurora is uniform-
ly precede J by a hazy or slaty up-
pearanco of the sky, particularly m
tho neighborhood of tho northern
horir.oti. When tho auroral display
commerces, this hazy porticn of tho
sky assumes tho torm of a dark
bank or segment of a circlo in the
north, rising ordinarily to the height
of from five to' ten degreos. This
dark segment is not a cloud, for the
stars aro seen through it as thro' a
smoky nimorpcro, w ith Iiltlo dimi-
nution of brillinncy. This -dark
bank is simply a dense haze, and it I
appears darker from the contrast
with tho luminous aro which rosts
upon It. In high northern latitudes
when tho aurora covers the entire
heavens, tho whole sky seems filled
with a donso baxo; and still highor
latitudes, where tho aurora is soma-
limos seen in tho south, this dark
segment is obscrvoil resting on tho
southern hortson and bordorod by
the auroral light.
Auroras aro sometimes obsorwd
Nimnltancoiisly over large portions
of tho globo, - Tho aurora of August
23, 1859, was soon throughout moro
than 140 degroes of longitude, from
Kastcrn Europo to California; and
from Jamaica on tho south to an
unknown distance in British Amer-
ica on the north. The aurora of
Septombcr 2, 1359, was secn nt tho
Sandwich Islands; il was soon thro'-
ought the whole of North America
and Europe; nnd tho disturbnnco
ol Ihe magnetic needle indicated Us
presence throughout all northern
Asia, iUuuuB mo .., -o -'
cast so that at many places it could
not bo seen. An aurora was soon
at the same timo in South Atnorica
and New Holland. Tho auroras of
Scptombor SB, 1841, and Noverabor,
i7,l43, were a.most cqnany ex-
Tho height of a largo number of
auroras has been computed, and tho
average, result for tho qppnr limit
of the streamers is 450 miles. From
multitudo of observ.tions It is
concluded that the aurora seldom
appears al an elovation less man
about fortv-flvo miles abovo the
carth'a surface, nnd that It frequent
ly extends upward to an elevation
it 500 milos. Auroral archoa hav
ing a well-defined border ar gen
erally less than ono hundred miles
Auroras aro very unoqually dis
tributed over the earth's surface.-
They occur roost frequently tn tho
highf r latitudes, and are almost tin
known within the tropics. At Ua
vans, in latitude 23 degrees, but six
auroras have been recorded within
a hundred years, and souihoflla.

quency nnd brilliancy j they rlso

orage only ton auroras annually.
Noar tho pavallol of 4Z degrees the
avcrago numoer is iwomy atimu

is 40; aud near tbo varallel of
docrces it nmonnts to oiglity annu

parallel of 62 degrees auroras, du

eryiug1t. Thojr ppofcr high in the
heavens, ana a ouen m ma noum

north they ar aeldo.u seen except
m the south, nnd from this point
diminish in frequency and
brilliancy as we ndranva toward the
pole- Beyond latitsJe C2 tlcree
lha average numlier o: anroraa is
reduced to forty annually. Beyond
latiludo C7 degrees it is rod need lu

Aaroral exliiliiioua take place in
