|Title||Paper, 'Notes on the spectrum of the aurora' by Joseph Norman Lockyer|
|Description||Lockyer writes: 'I exhibited to the Society on November 17, 1887, a tabular statements owing the bright lines seen in the spectra of various celestial bodies, and I also gave those recorded in the spectrum of the Aurora showing many remarkable coincidences [see PP/11/5]. I now find that the connexion is closest between the auroral spectrum and that of stars 3a,and in anticipation of a subsequent communication of details I send on the accompanying table, showing the origin of Dunér’s bands, so far as I have at present made them out, and their connexion with the spectrum in question.'|
