The Lunar Eclipse.

Although the interest which attached to the eclipse of the moon last night was a popular rather than a scientific one, yet arrangements for observations were made at the Observatory in the hope that some data of importance might be gathered, possibly the appearance of a satellite or other phenomena. As it was, the sky was so clouded that only a few glimpses of the eclipse in its early stages were gained and from these nothing of any importance was learned.

There will be another total eclipse of the moon September 3, and an attempt to get observations will be made again then.
