"The Duke of York's head in profile to the left is the centre of rays which at some distance are obscured by dark clouds. The eye and part of the face are hidden by a five-pointed star, in which is the head of Mrs. Clarke, also in profile to the left. The star casts a sharp shadow on the Duke's face. His very thick neck is encircled by a military collar and black stock. Below the title: 'This Phenomena was known to a few Philosophers previous to its becoming visible to the public Eye, and we are assured by many Scientific persons, is not likely to happen again within the existance of the present generation--vide Vox Stellum'."--British Museum online catalogue.
