Two shining objects

During the total eclipse of July 29, 1878, two astronomers, one in Rawlins, Wyoming and the other in Denver, Colorado, reported sighing two shining objects at a considerable distance from the sun. These were reported in Nature, Sept. 18, 1878, and Observatory, 2-161. Lockyer, in Nature, Aug. 20, 1878, wrote, “There is little doubt that an Intra-Mercurial planet has been discovered by Prof. Watson.”
