Krakatoa afterglow effects and parhelia
Three figures of atmospheric observations made at Guildford in Surrey, England from November 1883 to January 1884 and in the aftermath of the eruption of the volcano on Krakatoa, the island in the Sunda Strait, Indonesia on 27 August 1883. The figures are described in accompanying text by A H Swinton: figure 1 'Form of Sunset at Guildford. After-glow as observed from the 27 Nov 1883 until the 11 of Jan 184 Ã»'; figure 2 'After glow. The colour rings as they formed in succession'; figure 3 'Parhelia or Mock Sun in NW, noticed shortly after noon on the 22 Dec. 1883. As seen from Guildford Downs'. The figures appear on the reverse of a letter from A H Swinton of Binfield House, Waterden Road Guildford, 22 February 1884, to the meteorologist George James Symons FRS (1838-1900), editor of the Royal Society's report on the Krakatoa eruption.
