A description of the experience
The Seeress of Prevorst [translated by Catherine Crowe]
A magnetic wand, with an iron point, held to her right eye, and directed to any distant object, magnified it exceedingly: The smallest star appeared as large as the moon, and the moon so large, that she could distinguish the different bright spots. But she could only discern the right side of it; the left was invisible to her. She said that the dwellers on the left side of the moon were much engaged with building, and not so happy as those on the right. I told her I thought this was mere dreaming; but she denied it, and said that her sleep-waking was a state of perfect vigilance. It is much to be regretted, that these observations were made, at a time that the Seeress was unable to leave her bed, and a long contemplation of the heavenly bodies was out of her power.
