SOMETHING THE MATTER WITH THE SUN! The following letter has been sent for publication by the Rev. Frederick Howlett, of East Tisted Rectory, Alton, Hants :— The interest of the public having seemingly been consider- ably awakened in regard to the present unusually disturbed condition of the solar surface, I venture to again trouble you with some few further observations. Another enormous spot of very irregular ferm, but, up to this date, of one continuous surface, 54,000 miles in mean length and 30,000 miles in mean breadth, is traversing the sun's northern hemisphere, and possesses a superficial area of about 1,620,000,000 square miles. In addition to this great single spot there is agroup of two fair-sized spets in the northern hemisphere, besides six other groups in the southern hemisphere, mostly of a very scattered and irregular description. The total area of the whole of these spots cannot be esti- mated at less than 3,000,000,000 square miles. I have never, during a period of twenty years, seen so great a disturbance. The great northern spot will pass off the disk about the 14th inst., and previously to that date may very probably re- solve itself into a group of spots, as it shows symptoms of breaking up.
