Transcription:

"宋仁宗至和二年。侍御史趙抃上言曰。臣伏見自去年五月巳来。妖星遂見。僅及周稔。至今光耀未退。此谷永所謂馳騁驟歩。芒炎長短。所厯奸犯。其為謫變。甚可畏也。⋯⋯ 不然。何以妖星謫變也。"

Translation:

"2nd year of the Zhihe reign period of Emperor Renzong of Song [1055]; Attendant Censor Zhao Bian submitted a letter saying: "Your servant considers that, since the 5th month of last year [when] the baleful star appeared, a full year has passed and until now its brilliance has not faded [lit. 'retreated']. This is what Gu Yong meant by 'its rapid movement, the variations in the length of its flaming rays, and the [asterisms] on which it has trespassed successively,' as a censorious anomaly it is greatly to be feared.""
