A Remarkable Meteor seen from York


A remarkable Meteor seen from York

J. Edmund Clark at York described a meteor he saw on March 1st 1896 at 8h and 31 mins, it travelled from beta to alpha Canis Minoris. The meteor lasted for 6.5 seconds. Other observations from observers suggest that the meteor came from a radiant point of 18 degrees and with a declination of +5, this is in the constellation of Pisces. This is a position where no meteor shower is known to exist.

Today I suspect this meteor would be classified as a sporadic.
