Spectator

A spectator is a person who watches a certain event.  “Spectator” comes from the Latin verb specto, spectare which means “to watch” and the related noun spectator, “watcher” or “onlooker.”  The name of the newspaper which John Eames and Major Grantly exchange is called Spectator. [KD 2006]
