IN NATURE, vol. xxv. p. 213, Mr. Darwin describes the bands on Jupiter as “due to the trades and anti-trades” set in motion by the action of solar radiation on the solid body of the planet as are the trade-winds of the earth. Many other eminent astronomers still appear to accept this time-honoured explanation of the phenomena.
