A Cooke in Sunderland and a spot on Saturn

 A Cooke in Sunderland and a spot on Saturn

Observed the spot on Saturn that had been seen by Dr Terby in March 1890.  Dr Haswell from Grange Terrace, Sunderland saw the spot on several nights in March , and he described it as being very obvious on March 30th, though not so noticeable as it had been last spring.

Haswell used a 4.25 inch Thomas Cooke & Sons telescope which was of short focal length.
