Abstract : Observation is reported with an all-sky camera and high speed patrol spectrograph of a peculiar auroral cloud in the early evening of the night of April 26/27, 1960, showing strong hydrogen lines. The observation is of interest since no similar one was obtained in a series of 2,000 spectrograms. Usually auroral clouds appear after the breakup of strong aurora later in the evening and do not exhibit intense hydrogen emission.
