Pisces Co. Explanation.---To ascertain when any star or constellation will be on the upper meridian, add the numbers opposite in the coluran "for meridian passage to the

figures in the table "Sidereal noon" following this note. Note whether the figures be "Morn" or "Eve." If "Morn" and the sum ig more than 12 hours, the result will be evening of the same day; if "Eve,' and the sum is more than 12 hours, the result will be morning of the next day. Having found the time of meridian passage, for the rising subtract and for the setting add the numbers 'opposite the name of the star in the column headed "For rising and setting,' "observing the directions as to “Morn" and "Eve," as given above. Thoge stars marked in the last column are circumpolar and do not rise or set in the latitude of New-York City. Stars having an asterisk (*) in the last column are only to be seen in the far south and when near the meridian, as the vapors of the horizon will obscure them at rising or setting.

To tell how lrigh up from the nearest point of the horizon a star will be at its meridian passage, subtract the declination of the star from 90°, and if the result is less than the latitude of the place of the observer that star will neither rise nor set, but is circumpolar, and the difference between that result and the latitude shows the star's altitude above the north point of the horizon or below the southern horizon. Or, (90° dec.) -latitude = altitude or elevation of the star above the nearest point of the horizon at meridian passage for stars of a south declination. Examples: Sidereal moon, November 5..

11 52 p. m. Time of setting. Declination of Fomalhaut = 30° south; therefore 90° 30° e 60° 40° 20° = altitude of Fomalhaut in latitude 40° north at the time of the meridian passage of that star. To measure celestial distances with the eye, keep in mind that one-third of the distance from the zenith to the horizon is 30°. For smaller measurements use the "Pointers' in the "Big Dipper," which are nearly 5° apart--a convenient celestial unit because always in sight. The “Yardstick" or "Ell and Yard'' in Orion, or the "Kings,” is just 3° long, or 142° each way from the central star (see Star table). When the declination of a star is such as to bring it nearer to the zenith than to the horizon at meridian passage, use its zenith distance to locate it. The difference between latitude and declination = zenith distance. If declination is greater than latitude, such difference is to be counted northward (otherwise southward) from zenith.

ECLIPSES. There will be four eclipses this year, two of the Sun and two of the Moon, and a transit of Mercury. as follows: II. Total of the Sun January 14, invisible in North America. II. Partial of the Moon January 29, partially visible in the United States, the Moon setting with the eclipse on in the Eastern states. See the figures and table following Eclipse IV. III. Annular of the Sun, July 10, invisible in North America. IV. Partial of the Moon on the evening of July 24 and morning of July 25, visible throughout North America, as shown by the following figures and illustrations:

States, the Sun rising with
Mercury on its disk. In ob-

be used,

otherwise serious injury to the eye is apt to follow. Look for the planet well to the north of

the Sun's centre, and the ECLIPSE Y
