  Title Of husbandry Type Journal Article
  Year (up) 70 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Book 9 Issue Pages  
  Keywords Animals  
  Abstract Excerpt from Chapter 14, page 409 in the linked English translation:

...Therefore, at the time when the mallows blossom, when there is the greatest multitude of these butterflies, if a high brazen vessel, with a narrow neck like the mile-column, be placed in the evening among the bee-hives, and some light put down to the bottom of it, the butterflies gather together to it from all places; and, while they flutter about the small flame, they are scorched, because they can neither fly easily upward out of the narrow place, nor, on the other hand, can they retire at a greater distance from the fire, since they are surrounded by the sides of the brazen vessel: therefore they are consumed by the burning heat that is near them...

  Title The Heavens: An Illustrated Handbook of Popular Astronomy Type Book Whole
  Year (up) 1867 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Skyglow  
  Abstract Relevant excerpt: In large towns, the thousands of gas-lamps or other lights render the observation of the Zodiacal Light very difficult, not to say impossible, at all times. On the other hand, in stations conveniently situated, it can be seen at the various epochs of the year, even in the temperate zones.
