|Title||Paper, 'On Nova Aurigae' by William Huggins and Margaret Lindsay Huggins|
|Description||The authors write: 'We had the honour in February last of communicating to the Royal Society a short preliminary note on the remarkable spectrum of this temporary star [see PP/18/28]. We beg now to present a fuller account of our observations, together with two maps of the spectrum of this star, and some theoretical suggestions as to its nature. One map represents the result of our work by eye in the visible region; the other map has been drawn from a photograph of its spectrum, taken without its light having passed through glass, and which extends into the ultra-violet nearly as far as the absorption of our atmosphere permits even the solar rays to pass.'|
