TitlePaper, 'Preliminary note on Nova Aurigae' by William Huggins and Margaret Lindsay Huggins
DescriptionThe authors write: 'We have delayed up to the present time presenting any account of our observations of Nova Aurigae, in the constant hope that fine weather would enable us to make our observations more complete. We think now, however, that it may be of interest without further delay to send a short preliminary notice of this remarkable, and, in some respects, unprecedented, celestial phenomenon.'
