and asked him to find out a scientific explanation of the phenomenon.

并请他帮忙为这种现象找出一个科学的解释。

 The following explanation was given by the gentleman. (I am afraid I shall not be able to reproduce the learned Father's exact words, but this is what he meant or at least what I understood him to mean).

以下就是这位先生给出的解释。(恐怕我不能给出这位学识渊博的神父的原话,但至少这就是他的大致意思,或者说是我理解的他所表达的意思。)

“The girl in question was dressed in this particular way on an occasion, say 10 years ago. Her image was cast on space and the reflection was projected from one luminous body (one planet) on another till it made a circuit of millions and millions of miles in space and then came back to earth at the exact moment when our friend, Mr. Jones, was going to make the exposure.

这位姑娘在,大约十年前,一个特定的场合穿成了这种特定的样子。她的影像被投射在太空,然后反射回来的影像从一个发光体(一种行星)反射到另一个直到在太空中环行了成百上千万英里,然后回到地球,恰好在我们的朋友琼斯按下快门的时候,曝光在了感光板上。

“Take for instance the case of a man who is taking the photograph of a mirage. He is photographing place X from place Y, when X and Y are, say, 200 miles apart, and it may be that his camera is facing east while place X is actually towards the west of place Y.”

举例来说,比如有一个人在拍摄海市蜃楼。他从Y地拍摄X地,当XY相隔,比方说,200英里远的时候,就可能出现,虽然他的镜头朝着东边,但是X地其实朝着Y地的西侧。

In school I had read a little of Science and Chemistry and could make a dry analysis of a salt; but this was an item too big for my limited comprehension.

上学的时候我读过一点自然科学和化学,而且会对盐粒进行干法分析;但是这件事远远超出了我的理解范围。
