|Title||Manuscript, 'On the bright bands in the present spectrum of Nova Aurigae' by William Huggins and Margaret Lindsay Huggins|
|Description||The authors write: 'Some few prefatory words are called for in explanation of the partial incompleteness of the present communication. A considerable brightening, from below the 14th magnitude to above the 10th magnitude, was found to have taken place in the Nova when it was re-observed in the early part of August, 1892, and to be accompanied by a modification of its spectrum, apparently analogous to a similar change in the spectrum of Nova Cygni in 1877, since the observations we made of the star on March 24, 1892, when it had fallen to nearly the 11th magnitude.'|
