An aurora borealis of unusual brilliance was noticeable in the sky last night, beginning about 7:30 o'clock.
University astronomical exports declared that there was nothing at all to be surprised at. They said last night's display was the fourth in the year, and that they were expecting it all the time because of the current intensity of sunspots, Sunspot activity, at present at the height of an 11-year cycle, is said to cause the "Northern Lights" by ionization of the upper atmosphere.
One peculiar aspect of yesterday's phenomenon was that it apparently radiated from overhead, and according to observers, centered directly above the CRIMSON building. Observatory authorities declined to comment.
