Possible observatories in the Pacific in the 1890s

Possible observatories in the Pacific in the 1890s

Colonies and India Saturday 17th January 1891 

Mr. Clement Wragge, the Government Astronomer of Queensland, sailed from Brisbane the other day for the New Hebrides, where he is to superintend the erection of some observatories on the islands. It is plucky of the Queensland Government to take this matter up, and no doubt much useful astronomical information can be garnered by the aid of observatories in the Mid-Pacific.
