The Naval Observatory in the Foggy Bottom section of Washington, DC, completed in , came more than a century after its European counterparts. There, national observatories had become integral parts of governments’ efforts to gather and interpret astronomical data for maritime trade and colonial expansion. Yet, however belated its arrival, the U.S. Naval Observatory’s contribution to.

    The genesis of the book Maximiliana, or the Illegal Practice of Astronomy is difficult to pin down, but Ernst probably first came across asteroid number 65 in Flammarion’s Astronomie Populaire, the distribution of which was very widespread for decades after its publication. In that work, asteroid 65 was identified as Maximiliana and that. To the Editor of the Scientific American: In your issue of J , I notice an illustration of an electro-magnetic ore separator invented by Mr. Edison, and patented June 1, A device absolutely identical with this has been in use for the past ten or fifteen years at the emery works at Chester, Hampden county, Mass.

In David Gill, director of the Royal Observatory, Cape of Good Hope, requested the government of Natal to establish an astronomical observatory at Durban, in anticipation of the transit of Venus on 4 December that year.

Mr Robert T. Pett, third assistant at the Royal Observatory, visited Durban in June that year to expedite matters. A site for the observatory was chosen in the southwest Location: Durban, South Africa.

Sunspot observations are available in fairly good numbers sinceafter the invention of the telescope. This review is concerned with those sunspot observations of which longer records and drawings in particular are available.

Those records bear information beyond the classical sunspot numbers or group sunspot numbers. We begin with a brief summary on naked-eye sunspot. Astronomical and Terrestrial Telescopes (photocopy), no date.

The Grubb firm made telescopes for observatories all over the world, for example the 48inch Melbourne reflector telescope (), the inch Vienna refractor () and telescopes for Madras. These numbers aren’t universal, though. In North America, for instance, last year’s temperatures ranked only 14th in the past years, reports Jeff Masters for Scientific American.
