|Title||Paper, 'An account of a remarkable seeming alteration in the size and shape of a distance from the exhalation from the Earth' by Peter Collinson|
|Description||Concerning the deception of sight from the refraction of air in the appearance of objects on the earth at a great distance - witnessed when travelling over Ottmoor Plain not far from Oxford on 15 June 1731.|
A later manuscript edition indicates that the paper was read 23 March 1731, but this is clearly erroneous as the event recounted took place on 15 June 1731.
