Ball Lightning and After-images
ARGYLE1, in writing from a distinguished observatory, suggests that observations of ball lightning are optical illusions, and also claims that he has “found it easy to simulate with light bulbs” aExpand

Can Ball Lightning Exist in a Vacuum?
BLAIR1 has suggested that ball lightning is associated with a strong magnetic field which extends far beyond the confines of the ball.

Spectral Variations of the Structure of the Radio Sources Cassiopeia A and Cygnus A
IN a recent article, Ryle, Elsmore and Neville1 gave a beautiful synthesis of the brightness distributions associated with the radiation at 1,400 Mc/s from the radio sources Cygnus A and CassiopeiaExpand

Bearing of Recent Experiments on the Special and General Theories of Relativity
IN a recent communication Dr. L. Essen1 concluded that special relativity cannot be applied to a rotating system. Jennison2 and Synge3 have previously treated the problem considered by Essen and haveExpand

Ray Paths in a Rotating System
Light paths through a rotating system were examined using a hypothetical synchrotron machine in which self-luminous particles were orbiting at velocities closely approaching the velocity of light inExpand

Reflection from a transversely moving mirror
ALTHOUGH there have been many experiments which demonstrate the first order Doppler effect in the reflection of electromagnetic waves from a mirror with a component of radial motion, there has notExpand

Ball Lightning
THIS communication records the observation of ball lightning in unusual circumstances. I was seated near the front of the passenger cabin of an all-metal airliner (Eastern Airlines Flight EA 539) onExpand

Red-Shift Absorption Spectrum of the Cygnus-A Radio Source
A MEASUREMENT to check the 21-cm. hydrogen line absorption spectrum of Cygnus-A (19N4A) reported by Lilley and McClain1 is important in view of the cosmological significance of their result. TheExpand
