“EXTRACT from the log of the bark Lady of the Lake, by Capt. F. W. Banner: Communicated by R. H.
Scott, F.R.S.:  
That, upon the 22nd of March, 1870, at Lat. 5° 47′ N.,
Long. 27° 52′ W., the sailors of the Lady of the Lake saw a remarkable object,
or ‘cloud,’ in the sky. They reported to the captain.

above the horizon to a point about 80 degrees above. Then it settled down to
the northeast, having appeared from the south, southeast.

much lower than the other clouds.’ And this datum stands out: That, whatever it

wind, and finally settled down right in the wind’s eye.’

because it was lost to sight in the evening darkness.
      
Capt. Banner draws the following diagram:”
