Year of the meteors

Postby Gobei В» 15.04.2020

.

Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass includes the poem " Year of Meteors, " in which he documents many events in those years—including the hanging of abolitionist John Brown and the election of Abraham Lincoln.

He also includes descriptions of a comet and meteors:. But what were the meteors? Historians have suggested that Whitman was describing the Leonid meteor shower of , or perhaps the one in More recent scholars have suggested he was describing a fireball that passed overhead on the morning of November 15, Olson and his colleagues ruled out the Leonids; these are multi-hour events, not the brief one of the poem, and and are not the years the poem covers.

And though the fireball of fits the timeline, Whitman described a process of "balls of unearthly light," not a single one. The solution to the mystery came from the back of a catalog from an exhibition of paintings by Frederick Edwin Church, a member of the Hudson River School of artists.

Olson noticed similarities between the painting and Whitman's poem: The Meteor of depicted a line of several fireballs blazing across the New York sky. A search through newspapers, journals and other publications revealed hundreds of accounts from July 20, of a phenomenon known as a meteor procession—when a meteor grazes the Earth's atmosphere and fragments into smaller meteors all traveling in the same path—exactly what Whitman had described.

Though the event garnered much public attention—Olson found hundreds of eyewitness accounts—it was mostly forgotten by the 20th century, perhaps overshadowed by the tremendous events that shortly followed.

But Whitman and the thousands of other people who saw the meteor procession witnessed something truly special. Olson knows of only three other meteor processions in history. Now there are four. In related news, check out this story about a group of meteorologists who how Olson's group and some scientists from the UK tracked down where Claude Monet stood to create his painting Waterloo Bridge in Continue or Give a Gift.
