PHILADELPHIA. March 30.
The earth was passing through the
outer confines of the corona or ex
terior envelope of the sun en the
night of March 22 when the Inhab
itants of the northern portion of the
United States witnessed the great
aurora in the skies.1 says Professor
Monroe B. Snyder, director of the
The astronomer declared In a
statement to the Associated Press
Press that the "universal force of
radloact!on"4n the son "hurled the
final atoms of an explosion, namely,
elecrlf led hydrogen and probably
helium, straight to earth."
Professor Snyder's observations
follow; , i
"The recent aurora is a fine In
dication of the explosive atomic dis
integration which takes place at the
surface of the sun and is responsible
for Its prominences, spots and co
rona. Our discovery of the magni
tude and precise Atomic order of the
explosion of the1 chemical elements
in the sun, and in the stars gener
ally, leads to conceptions of the au
rora and the. accompanying magnetic
and electric storms, which are be
yond any doubt as to the validity.
"During the hours of Monday
night last, the earth was. In a very
true sense, and to the delight of us
all, passing' through the outer con
fines of the solar corona. The same
universal force of tadloaetlon which
disintegrates the atoms In stupen
dous localized Krakatoas. or Mone
Pelees, on, the sun, and produces
the hydrogen" of the coronal-streamers,
then also, hurled the final at
oms of that explosion, namely. : elec
trified hydrogen, nd probably hel
ium, strafghtto the earth. ; i
"Only, wlihtn about a month of
the equinox, vernal, or autumnal,
Is the earth In an orbital position to
be thus successfully bombarded. The
moving electric hydrogen Is, of
course, an electric current, and If
therefore carried toward the poles
of the earth and round them by the
earth's agntic forces.1 The fascl
natln& colors of, the aurora are due
- to the changln electric excitation of
the' hydrogen and Other gases. The
theorr of Vegard, the Swedish phys
icist, which has explained the won
derful curtained auroras as due to
hydrogen particles, of positice elec
tric charge. Is now shown to be un-t
questionably true.: In that It is but
