H ALLEY'S COMET SOON VISIBLE. Celestial Wanderer is Now Fast Ap proaching the Sun. Halley's comet when seen Dec. 29. by Trof. Bernard, through a five-Inch telescope showed faintly, a slender tail, pointing to the northwest. The next night Prof. Frost, director of the Yerkes observatory, with Trof. Park hurst, obtained the first spectrum, which showed that it consisted of a combination of hydrogen and carbon. As the comet's brightness Increases, the spectroscope observations become of greater Importance In testing the theory of comets' tails. The comet is approaching the sun. and early in March It may be lost In the rays of the sun, only to reappear In April as a morning object. During early March it may be possi ble to observe the comet with the na- ked eye. and it will be plainly visible with a three-Inch telescope Halley's comet Is the first that has biren visible from the earth since the perfection of the spectroscope, by means of which the chemical composi tion of luminous bodies is determined by analysis of the rays of light they give off, and the study of the new ce lestial visitor is expected to clear up many disputed points about the tails of comets. Varying theories have been advanced for the last 200 years. Kep ler in 1607 argued that the head of a comet becomes vaporized by the sun. and that particles are driven therefrom to form the tall of the comet through a force of repulsion, which was explained by the then accepted theory of light. According to this theory the sun con tinually tmlts particles of light mat ter, which travel through space at an enormous velocity. On reaching the comet a portion of the energy becomes Imparted to the cometary material and the result is the tall pointed away from the sun. OSCEOLA NEWS NOTES. D.
