When was ozone first discovered?

Ozone was officially discovered around 1839, however in 1785 ozone was first noticed when a scientist called Van Marum carried out experiments into electrolysis. The air surrounding his experiment took on a ‘strange odour’. What he noticed is the fresh smell of ozone, similar to how the air smells after a thunderstorm.
