Abstract:

Some comments are made on certain inaccurate newspaper accounts of scientific material stated by N. A. Kozyrev on the nature of luminescence of the clouds and atmosphere of the planet Venus. These statements are to the effect that the newly discovered continuous luminescence inside or below the clouds of the Venusian atmosphere is different from ionospheric luminescence. He contends that it is chemical in nature and that it is a physical phenomenon accompanying the formation of formaldehyde.
