EXPIAMAHON OF AURORA MADE BY SQENTIST Atomic Disintegration in Son Responsible for Phenom- : enon BOREALIS TIME LIMITED Depends Upon Relative Po sitions of Son and Earth 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 Philadelphia observatory. 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 a logical result of the explosive erup tfon of the electric hydrogen from the unnl. ''The well known delay, or lag in tilie. hetween the solar eruption and the appearance of the magnetic storm, and accompanying aurora, on the earth; of about 4 5 hours. Is due to the time taken for the hydrogen atoms to- travel from the sun to the earth. The rate of travel ts about 675 miles pef second, or somewhat In exeess of the rate of the upward - PTBUC KOT1CKS.
