Soon after this communication was made to the Academy, Le Verrier, in acknowledging the receipt of a memoir, made use of the opportunity thus afforded to request Dr. Galle, of the Berlin observatory (where is found one of the largest telescopes of Europe), to undertake a search for his computed planet, and he assigned its supposed place in the heavens. The Berlin Academy had just published a chart of this part of the heavens, indicating the exact place of every star down to the tenth magnitude. On the evening of the very day. upon which this letter was received (September 23), Galle found near the place computed by Le Verrier, a star of the eighth magnitude, not contained on the Berlin chart. Its place was carefully measured; and the observations being repeated on the succeeding evening, showed a motion of more than a minute of space. The new star was found in longitude 325 52'; the place of the planet computed by Le Verrier was 324 58'; so that this body was within one degree of the computed point. Its diameter measured nearly three seconds. A coincidence so exact, left no doubt that this was really the body whose effects had been detected in the motions of Uranus. Mr. Galle accordingly writes to Le Verrier, " the planet whose position you marked out actually exists." The news of the discovery spread rapidly over Europe. The planet was observed at Gottingen on the 27th ofSeptember, at Altona and Hamburg on the 28th, and at London on the 30th. We must now return to Professor Challis, whom we left exploring a large zone of the heavens, and recording the exact position of every star down to the eleventh magnitude.
