"Monday Afternoon, Sept. 30, 1850. A singular phenomenon was witnessed by some of our citizens last evening between the hours of 10 and 11 o'clock. A large black mass, seeming like a cloud of the size of a huge blanket, but apparently, a heavy substance, moved with incredible swiftness over the north-eastern portion of the city. It passed but little above the tops of the houses, yet seemed projected with such force, it did not describe a curve, but overcame the force of gravity and went in a direct line at even distance from the surface of the earth. It passed over the lake, where, from the influence of the water or some other natural cause, it slowly ignited, and at about the distance of a mile from the shore, exploded without a report. - Can some of our scientific men explain this meteorlogical phenomenon?"
