Product details Meteorological phenomenon

Meteorological phenomenon

John Swinton

Sketch of a ‘dark cloud’, identified by its observer as a water spout, seen in the sky over Oxford, England, on 21 September 1760. In the accompanying description, Swinton states that the cloud or pillar, ‘would have resembled an iris [rainbow], had not the colours of it been different’. Original illustration for the paper ‘An account of a remarkable meteor seen at Oxford…’, by John Swinton, Philosophical Transactions v.52 (1761) pp.99-102.
