|Title||Paper, 'Appendix Bakerian: III On the spectra of meteoric swarms in the solar system' by Joseph Norman Lockyer|
|Description||Lockyer writes: 'In the Bakerian Lecture given last Session I detailed the spectroscopic evidence which in my opinion shows that the various orders of nebulae and stars are produced by the presence and subsequent condensation of meteoric swarms in space, the most uncondensed ones giving rise to the appearances which we term nebulae, the more condensed ones to those which we term stars. Since the lecture was delivered, my assistants and myself have been employed not only in continuing the experiments, but in bringing together and co-ordinating as great a number of recorded observations as possible, along those lines which seemed likely to furnish the most severe tests as to the validity of the conclusions stated in my former communications.'|
