"A singular phenomenon was lately observed at Kattenau, Germany. Just before sunrise an enormous number of luminous bodies rose from the horizon and passed in a horizontal course from east to west. Some of them seemed of the size of a walnut, while others resembled the sparks flying from a chimney. They moved through space like a string of beads, and emitted a remarkably brilliant light. The belt containing them appeared about ten feet in length and two or three feet in width."
