The aurora boreal is curved in a majestic circle from South  Dundas Tsla"d to' Green Top Lsliand.  The. ends of the light seemed to find  a resting place upcyi either island.  "Another remarkable feature of the  aurora l-orealis was its great light.  A.s we passed under the. semi-circlet  of heavenly illumination, it became  sufficiently, lis-ht upon t-he decks 1o  read.
