LUNAR RAINBOW IN GEORGIA.
Unusual Phenomenon Reported to the

in the form of a rainbow for which the
moon instead of the sun furnished the
'light, was observed here on the night
of June 19.
A heavy rainstorm, accompanied by
considerable thunder, occurred just
tired to the west the luminary
and the bow was first observed, only
the extremities for about 25 degrees
being visible, the moon at that time
being concealed behind a small cloud
For about twenty minutes the bow in
creased in brightness, and at the end
of that time could be clearly traced
throughout its entire length. At each
end the red and blue colors could be
plainly distinguished, but the
mainder of the arc showed only as a
light streak across the clouds.
The conditions for the phenomenon
were almost ideal, the moon being but
a few days past full, the cloud screen
occupying the proper position, and, as
it occurred just at moonrise, the bow
was seen well up in the heavens.
After the clouds had almost entirely
melted away, leaving only a slight
haze through which the stars shone,
portions of the bow could still be
clearly discerned.—Poulan correspon
