|Title||Letter from George Gabriel Stokes, Lensfield Cottage, Cambridge, to Charles Vernon Boys |
|Date||23 March 1900|
|Description||He has reconsidered the utility of the 13 June lunar eclipse for Boys's researches into the radiant heat of the Moon and now considers a fuller eclipse would be better, providing his reasoning. He assumes that Boys will work with a reflecting telescope as the glass lens of a refractor would stop almost all heat. Lord Rosse discovered that only 8 or 10 percent of total heat from the Moon would get through even a thin piece of plate glass. |
