(page 271)

One meteor was observed in the north, under remarkable circumstances. Its first appearance was a burst of diverging stars radiating from a common centre; they afterwards re-approached and conglomerated themselves into a nucleus, which slowly moved horizontally, extending itself into a bending bar of light remained stationary for several minutes, and gradually resumed the form of a single star, and vanished.
