15 March, 1769

 

On 15 March, 1769, James Cook wrote “Light breeze and clear weather... Saw a Tropic Bird”.

Joseph Banks wrote “All but calm all this day: many tropick birds were about the ship. The sea today was remarkably quiet so that the ship had little or no motion. This night happend an occultation of Saturn by the moon, which Mr Green observ’d but was unlucky in having the weather so cloudy that the observation was good for little or nothing”.

Charles Green was the astronomer appointed by the Royal Society.
